Freshman Anna Gott Wins AAU Junior Beach Volleyball National Championship

HERMOSA BEACH, Calif. – Incoming volleyball freshman Anna Gott (Phoenix, Ariz./Desert Vista), an accomplished beach player, added a big win to her resume on July 19 when she teamed with partner Betsi Metter to win the 18 and under girls AAU Junior Beach Volleyball National Championship.

Gott and Metter, both from Arizona, defeated Emma White and Meg Norton of California by scores of 21-15 and 21-16 to take the title at the 16th annual event in Hermosa Beach. The pair did not drop a match in the entire tournament, and were the first from Arizona to ever win the event.

The win comes just two months after the duo took first place at the Arizona Junior Beach Tournament in May.

Along with numerous wins in beach volleyball, Gott was a two-time first team all-region selection while playing at setter for Desert Vista High School, as well as an Arizona Republic honorable mention All-Arizona selection.
