May 7 – 8th Weekend Tournament Recap

16U NOVA Cavs team huddle in the Big Shots DC this past weekend at Wilson HS


Washington DC / Loudoun, VA / College Park, MD –  Four of the NOVA Cavalier teams were in action this weekend in the DMV metro area.

16U and 13U Cavaliers participated in the Big Shots DC at Wilson HS this weekend.  Coach Gray-Mende’s team squared off against good competitions all weekend long, with tough matches against Carolina Wolves, Team Wall and DC Premier.  But the 16U team fought valiantly and competed hard throughout the entire weekend, especially with strong performances from Andrew Powers (South Lakes) and Ben Ayanian (Flint Hill).  Cavs are making serious progress and will look to make a run this second half of the season.

Coach Boltersdorf’s Cavs also played well for much of the weekend despite the 1-2 record.  13U Cavs are making steady improvement and was competitive in all the games at Big Shots.  They lost an entertaining back and forth affair against Burke Bulldogz on Sunday.  The development of this team has been tremendous and fun to watch over the past few weeks; led by the play of dynamic duo Jaheim Brown and Bobby Asel.

May 7-8th weekend

12U Cavs participated in the Big Shots Next Generation this past weekend at College Park, MD.  Coach Sullender’s squad finished with an 1-2 record, as they finished Sunday with a 42-37 over SMD Heat.  Meanwhile, the 17U-Corish’s team played in the Capital Area Tournament of Champions in Loudoun over the weekend.  The Cavs finished the tournament 2-2 with great effort from Idaresit Ekpuk (West Potomac) and Isaac Peress (Langley).  Coach Corish will look to compete against strong teams in the Big Shots VIT event next weekend.

Next weekend, most of the teams in the NOVA Cavs organization will participate in the Big Shots VIT or in the Loudoun Xpress Commonwealth Classic tournament.  Look for the schedule to be publish very soon.

Go Cavs!
