TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — While high school and college athletic seasons are up in the air across the country the AAU junior national volleyball championships spent the weekend in Orlando, and a Tallahassee team brought back some hardware.

Prostyle Volleyball Academy's 14-Black squad went in as the number one seed in their division. The only match they lost in four days of competition was the Championship match.

The team was 10 and one, finishing second out of 31 teams, making them National Runners-up.

After a summer of uncertainty, PSVA excited to celebrate the accomplishment.

"We had a seven-week break there, after COVID hit and we weren't able to do anything," said Gokhan Yilmaz, the director, and coach at PSVA. "Some of our teams stuck together and wanted to play in this tournament. We were happy AAU was able to make it. This age group specifically, they are on their way to high school so they're all upcoming ninth graders, so it was a very good end of the year for all of them."

PSVA is finished with competitive volleyball this summer. Next, they'll host a training academy for kids.
