We will use these social media outlets to post the latest on tryouts, clinics, and other Peak events.
Once again, Peak led the state assault on the USAV national tournament with 10 teams who qualified for the USAV National Championships in late June/early July. Nine OP2 teams made the trek to Indy to compete against the top teams in the nation. USAV requires that teams qualify through either a national qualifier, a regional (state) tournament. or by receiving at-large bid. Every team at nationals had to earn their way to Indy.
Congratulations to 12 EP, 13 EP, 13 National, 14 EP, 15 EP, 15 National, 16 EP, 17 EP, and 17 National on representing the state of Oklahoma against the best competition in the nation. In addition, 18 EP earned the right to attend nationals by winning a national qualifer (Lone Star), but did not attend as many of their players had already reported to their universities.
Collectively, Peak posted one top 5 finish, two top 10 finishes, and five top 25 finishes. We are so proud of all these players and coaches who earned their way to nationals! Way to go ladies, coaches, and parents! GO PEAK

Congratulations to the USA Women’s National Sitting team on winning the gold medal in sitting volleyball at the Paralympics in Rio. The women beat China 3-0 to secure the first paralympic gold by any USA sitting team. Prior to Saturday’s loss, China had never lost a match in paralympic sitting volleyball competition.
Peak coaches and players played large roles in the win. Peak board member and owner, Bill Hamiter, is the women’s national team coach. Heather Erickson, named MVP of the tournament, coaches our 11 EP team. Women’s team players Lexi Shifflett and Katie Holloway also coached for Peak as did coordinator Elliot Blake.
Former Peak player, Kaleo Kanahele, was the setter for the national team. We are so proud of the team and all of the Peak family who had a part in this historic win. Great job TEAM USA!
