DODDS-Europe volleyball - Day 1
The realignment of DODDS-Europe’s three divisions was expected to produce mismatches. On Thursday, the first day of the 2014 European girls volleyball championship tournament, it did just that.
Divisional realignment adds another twist to tournaments that often feature the unexpected.
Wildcats advanced to the DODDS European Division II semifinals on the galloping runs of its sophomore quarterback Ty'Rick Riggins, pushing past a persistent Rota team to win 34-18.
German-based teams will face squads from northern Italy and Belgium while DODDS-Europe’s only Spanish entry makes the long trip to Naples.
The Ansbach Cougars completed a dominant regular season and secured home-field advantage for the Division II quarterfinals and semifinals with a 44-13 win Saturday over the Rota Admirals.
Almost six months ago, Nicholas Duplessie suffered a spiral fracture in one of his legs during the DODDS European baseball finals. That injury looked to be a major setback for the Ansbach athletic star, especially in the world of cross-country.
It's been just more than a week since DODDS-Europe announced a new format for determining the eight participants in the Division II football playoffs. But already the bracket is rounding into form.
The Rota Admirals played their way into the DODDS-Europe Division II football playoffs Saturday with a dominant 42-16 win over the visiting AFNORTH Lions.
