NOVA Takes Home Classic Bronze at AAU DIII Nationals in Hampton

Hampton, VA (Boo Williams Sportsplex) July 28 – 31st

NOVA Cavs 56 – DC Stars 49.  The 15U NOVA Cavaliers (Dixon) finished their last tournament of the season with a special achievement. Despite losing their first two games in the AAU DIII National Championship Tournament, the Cavs made a monster run in the Classic Bracket before bowing out in the semifinal to the eventual Champion- Seven Cities BWSL 82-75 in overtime. Led by Nate Thatcher (Falls Church HS, Class of 2015), Sam Freund (Marshall HS), and Joey Powell (Robinson HS), NOVA went 4-1 in their last five games during the last two days of the tournament to seize the Third Place finish. In the Consolation game, Cavaliers defeated DC Stars 56-49 behind the strong play of Michael Trivisonno (Marshall HS), John Froliech (McLean HS) and Will Mejia (Falls Church HS). With the win, the Cavs were presented with Bronze Medals and a Third Place Plaque by Mr. Boo Willliams himself. The 15u team completed their inaugural season together with a strong finish; a fitting ending to a successful season. We are very proud of the boys for their accomplishment and wish everyone best of luck heading to the off-season.

Go Cavs!
