Brazosport College’s ‘A’ volleyball team recently brought home top honors from a tournament at San Jacinto College’s South campus.

The ‘A’ team defeated a squad from Lone Star College-Montgomery campus in the championship match to claim the title. It was the first victory in seven years for a Brazosport College team at the indoor tournament.

The tournament featured eight teams from college campuses across the Houston Gulf Coast region. Two BC squads were represented in the tourney. In weeks prior, coach Brian Morales helped them develop their 5-1 offense and perimeter defense.

Leading the way for BC’s ‘A’ team was the net play of Aron Martinez, Bryson Soistman and Nate Davidson. With a continuous array of blocks and spikes, the trio dominated net play and shut down opposing teams’ hitters throughout tournament play.

When a shot managed to get through the front line, their perimeter defense made save after save, passing expertly to their setter in the right-front position. Playing key roles in these shots were the accurate passing and setting skills of Kindle Davenport, Ahmarea ‘Mars’ Hamilton and Ashley Dailey. These girls also contributed kill shots of their own.

While BC’s ‘A’ team earned the victory, the ‘B’ team also turned in a quality performance, with multiple players making numerous impressive saves and long rallies. Taking the spotlight for the ‘B’ team was the play of Tyler Kilsby, who contributed more than his share of midair kill shots from his back-row position.  

“Both teams represented Brazosport College well,” said BC Top Flyte Volleyball program coach Jerry James. “They played with enthusiasm, they played well, and they played with integrity. They did us proud”
