Metro VBC 18 Travel, the top-ranked team in 18 Open, claimed the tournament title, despite an unexpected loss to Sureshots 18N on Day 2. That 27-25, 27-25 loss turned out to be the only blemish on 18 Travel’s record over President’s Day weekend. The squad capped its Capitol Hill Classic performance with a three-set victory over VA Elite 18s (25-20, 21-25, 15-11) in the 18 Open finale. 

Metro 18 Travel libero Milan Gomillion, a Maryland recruit, earned MVP of the division, while her teammates Olivia Womble and Sydney Reed were named Best Attacker and Best Server, respectively. 


Renaissance 18-1 and Revolution PGH 18 White lost in the semifinals to take third-place finishes.

The D.C.-based squad faced Canadian team Defensa 17 Purple in the final.


Samiha Foster led Metro 16 Travel to victory in 16 Open and was awarded MVP for her efforts. Her teammates Julia Gladhill (Best Passer) and Laila Ivey (Best Attacker) played big roles in helping 16 Travel go undefeated across three days of competition and take down Puerto Rican team Borinquen Coqui 16-1 for first place.


In 15 Open, top-seeded Metro 15 Travel lost to eventual champion Elite Volleyball Training Center (EVTC) 15 Black in the semis.
