Area Teams Excel At AAU Gold Tournaments

AAU 9th Grade Team Members From Sheldon, LeMars and Unity

It was AAU Gold Tournament weekend in Iowa this weekend as tournaments were held across the state for teams in grades 4th through 11th.

Sheldon had two teams place at State Gold Tournaments. The 9th graders were second at the tournament held in Newton. Cedar Valley won the tournament with LeMars 3rd and NWI (the Unity program) finishing 4th.

The Sheldon 10th graders were third at the Marshalltown tournament. Tri County (the Western program) won the tournament with MVP (Sioux City) finishing second.

All told seven Sheldon teams earned a trip to the Gold Tournament this weekend by finishing in the top 2 at one of their Saturday tournaments.  At state they competed against teams from all over the state of Iowa without regard to class size or location.  Some of the tournaments hosted as many as 50 teams competing for these years’ top 4 medals in each age group.

As a program Sheldon had 11 teams, including over 90 girls, from grades 4th-11th that competed in the AAU season this year.  These girls practiced twice a week from the beginning of January until this last week of the Gold Tournaments.  They have competed in at least 6 Saturday tournaments to improve their skills, develop teamwork and learn to enjoy the game of Volleyball.
