Bayside Academy, Orange Beach win gold brackets at respective volleyball tournaments

Daphne Trojans hosted a Serve for a Change match against the Spanish Fort Toros

Posted

Local volleyball teams were busy last weekend in tournament action where the Orange Beach Makos and Bayside Academy Admirals came away as gold bracket champions.

The Gulf Shores Dolphins were among a handful of county teams that went to Orange Beach’s Battle at the Beach and claimed the silver bracket championship. The Spanish Fort Toros also competed in the Mayor’s Cup against Bayside Academy and finished as gold bracket semifinalists.

Makos win host tournament

After Orange Beach took down Gulf Shores earlier in the week, head coach Sunne Young hoped to keep the winning streak going through the weekend. The Makos were able to do just that after they registered six wins in as many matches and lost only two of 14 sets played.

The Bayshore Christian Eagles were a gold bracket semifinalist with a 3-2 overall record and both the Robertsdale Golden Bears and St. Michael Catholic Cardinals took semifinalist spots in the silver bracket with 2-3 records. Bayshore only lost to Orange Beach in pool play, beat Curry to go to the gold bracket but fell to Pensacola.

The silver bracket-champion Dolphins lost only one match to Pensacola in the second round which left them in the silver bracket. There, they took down St. Michael Catholic and Curry to finish 5-1 on the tournament.

Admirals claim Mayor's Cup

Bayside Academy traveled to the capital to compete in the Mayor's Cup where they bounced back from their lone loss to win the gold bracket.

The Admirals lost only one set in wins over Pike Road, St. James and Elmore County before being swept by Pelham. In the gold bracket, however, Bayside Academy took down Trinity Presbyterian, Montgomery Catholic and Montgomery Academy to win the bracket.

Spanish Fort was not far behind and was a gold bracket semifinalist. The Toros swept Brewbaker Tech and John Carroll Catholic on Friday. Although they finished pool play with a 2-0 loss to trinity, they grabbed a sweep over Wetumpka before falling to Montgomery Academy in the semifinal.

Spanish Fort, Daphne serve for a change

Earlier in the week, the Toros hit the road to face the Trojans for a “Serve for a Change” match sponsored by Project Outreach DHS which strives to create genuine relationships between individuals with disabilities and their community.
