Looking for some camps to help your 2nd-8th grader prepare for YMCA leagues, school ball, or club ball? OP2 has added three camps occurring in late July and into August. See a brief description of the camps below:
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!

Headed into the USA Volleyball National Championships, 15EP was seeded 3rd in their pool and 17th out of 36 total teams in the USA division. During the first two days, Coach Boyland’s team fought through a rugged pool of six that ended in a 4-way tie for first with no team having less than 2 losses. Because every point counts in the tiebreaker rules, Coach Boyland’s team finished first.
On day 3, the ladies of 15EP won three matches, including a crucial challenge match to get to the gold and into the elite eight. Two wins on championship day 4 found this crew in the national final’s match against Livewire 15 Adidas from Arizona. While falling short in the national final, 15EP posted one of the best runs of any Oklahoma team in recent history.
By virtue of making it to the finals match, three OP2 15EP players earned All-American honors. Congratulations to (left to right below) Teagan Polcovich, Kamryn Bacus, and Gracie Burleson.
Great job to the 15EP ladies, Coach Jeff Boyland, and Coach Bryce Boyland on representing Peak and Oklahoma well!
14EP, Coach Rachel Jones, and Coach Haydn Beatty put together an impressive run at the USA Volleyball National Championships in Minneapolis and finished 10th in the nation in the USA division. The USA division is made up of teams who either won, or came in 2nd, at a national qualifier. So, this division can be brutal for teams unprepared.
Coach Jones’ team was ready and finished an impressive 8-3 during the 4-day tournament, ending as runner-up in the silver division. Great job to the players, coaches, and parents for a great tournament! We are proud of you!
OP2’s group of coaches is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced coaching staffs in the nation. With over 70 national tournament appearances, 15 high school state championships, one national championship, and several Olympic medal appearances, Peak coaches can provide guidance and assistance to those wanting to grow and develop in the coaching profession.
Peak has opportunities for head coaches, assistant coaches, and those looking to work in our developmental programs with our 8-14 year old players.
We are always looking for great coaches in the making. If you’re interested in joining the Peak family, contact Greg Dewey, director of coach recruitment, at email@example.com.
Contact Will Ethridge at firstname.lastname@example.org for a list of coaches available to do lessons.
The saying, “A rising tide lifts all boats” is certainly true in the Oklahoma Region this season. OP2 earned 7 national qualifier bids at national tournaments this season. Because of this success, 7 more Oklahoma teams had the opportunity to earn a bid to nationals this summer.
With four Peak teams (14EP, 15EP, 16EP, 17EP) sitting out Regionals having already qualified for the June USAV National Championships, Peak sent 21 teams to the OKRVA Regional Championships in Tulsa on May 6-7. Those 21 teams showed up well at Regionals and earned 4 additional national tournament bids! In addition to 12EP and 13 EP winning Regional championships, 14-2 National and 16-2 National earned runner-up finishes and qualified for nationals in June/July. This is the second year in a row that at least two Peak 2’s teams have qualified for nationals. In all, eleven teams (including 11EP and 16-3’s) are headed for national tournament play!
At Regionals (including 18’s who had Regionals in February), Peak had 19 out of 22 teams post top 10 finishes, fourteen teams finished in the top 5, ten finished in the top 3, and three teams claimed regional championships.
Peak has nine of the 10 teams on the west side of the state who will have the honor of representing Oklahoma at the USAV National Championships! Great job to the entire Peak family on another great run at Regionals.

In a fitting end, the ladies of 18 EP completed a wonderful season and club careers with a top ten finish at the USAV 18’s National Championships in Dallas, TX. This team earned bids to nationals at both the MLK National Qualifier and the OKRVA 18’s National Qualifier. Great job to Coaches Edgar Miraku and McKenzie Fyfe as well as the team. All of these ladies are headed off to continue their careers in college. Great job to: Callie Bangasser, Jordan Cramer, Kadie Grace Dewey, Ryan Emmert, Alli Evans, Hallie Hembree, Malia Kaaiohelo, Rachel Krutz, Malia Leatherland, Kassidy Muse, and Ericka Scholl. YOUR PEAK FAMILY IS PROUD OF YOU!
