The last national qualifier this season for Peak teams resulted in a new state record for Oklahoma teams. 17 EP earned a bid to USAV nationals in the USA division by virtue of a runner-up finish at the ShowMe National Qualifer in Kansas City. 15 EP matched that feat with a 3rd place finish at ShowMe as well. This was 15 EP’s second bid to nationals this year. They earned an American bid by winning Lone Star a couple of weeks ago. Congratulations to both these teams and their coaches!
In another record setting year, OP2 teams have accomplished an unprecedented 7 national qualifier bids for the 2016-2017 season. Earning a bid at a national qualifier is extremely difficult to do as you are competing against some of the best teams in the nation. Congrats to all these teams (14EP, 15EP, 16EP, 17EP) who will now forego the OKRVA Regional Championships as they have already punched their ticket to nationals!

Heading into April, OP2 had already earned three national qualifier bids on the 2017 club season. A contingent of Peak teams headed to Kansas City and Dallas to try to add to the bid count. Congrats to 14 EP (2nd at ShowMe) and 15 EP (Champs at Lone Star) on securing the 4th & 5th national qualifier bids for OP2 this season! We are proud of these ladies, Coach Rachel Jones/Coach Haydn Beatty (14 EP), and Coach Jeff Boyland/Coach Bryce Boyland (15 EP)!
OP2 is blessed to work with wonderful players who have committed to play collegiately for the 2017 school year! We are proud of all of these ladies!
