So much goes into any season that trying to narrow it down to a set number of moments or stories is always difficult.

In coming up with the Top 30 Moments/Stories of 2014, a wide variety of factors were used.

Things like impact, shelf life, rarity, difficulty and unpredictability.

Impact includes stuff like how many local teams were involved and how important it was. Shelf life refers to how long a story will live for, how long people will keep talking about it.

Rarity and difficulty are pretty straight forward. How often does something happen and is it easy or not to do. Unpredictability are those moments or stories you don’t see coming, which also leads back some to impact, because the stories you don’t see coming can often leave the biggest impact.

It’s not an exact science, so a lot of the listed items below can be shifted around quite a bit. Also, not all of the top headlines this season were necessarily shining moments. There were a few that weren’t highlights but still had significant impact.

One more thing, I make the distinction between a story and moment like this. A story has a running thread, throughout a weekend, a month, a season, whereas a moment could be a team winning a qualifier or a key match.

Instead of making separate lists, I just combined the top moments and stories of the season into one.

The Top 30 Moments/Stories of 2014:

30. Long Beach 17s reaches semifinals of Mandatory 1

Long Beach and Coast were the two 17s teams to start the season in Division 1 and Long Beach wasted no time making others take notice. Long Beach beat 18s teams in Golden West and Mavericks to advance out of pool, then topped its 18s counterpart in the quarterfinals before losing to Coast in the semis.

29. Wave 15s reaches semifinals of Mandatory 2

Playing up in the 16s Division, Wave 15s started the season in Division 2 before moving up for the second mandatory. Wave defeated Long Beach, Tustin and SCVC to finish first in pool play. Wave then beat Mavericks in the quarterfinals before falling to Tstreet in the semis. The third-place finish was Wave’s best showing during SCVA play.

28. Coast 17s finishes first at Mandatory 4

With Long Beach 17s reaching the semis at the first mandatory, Coast 17s had its moment at the last mandatory. Coast reached the finals, where it met its 18s counterpart. Instead of play the one-game final, the teams held a contest of bear, hunter, princess, which was won by Coast 17s.

27. Rancho Valley 16s finishes first at Mandatory 3

It wasn’t the biggest story of the season, but it still held some importance. With Rancho Valley defeating Tstreet to finish first at the third mandatory in the 16s Division, it meant Tstreet could no longer sweep the division. As it turned out, Rancho Valley was the only other team besides Tstreet to finish first during mandatory or Regionals play.

26. Northern Lights kind to trio of SCVA teams

It didn’t take place on the same weekend, but some SCVA teams found success at the Northern Lights Qualifier. First, it was Coast and TCA picking up Open bids in the 15s, with Laguna Beach following the next weekend by clinching an Open bid in the 18s. Coast and TCA were playing in their second qualifiers. While Coast might have had a shot at an at-large, TCA figured not to and needed to qualify. As it turned out, both had Open bids secured before playing their last pool matches of Day 2. Laguna Beach was also playing in its second qualifier, but there were only two bids available. Laguna Beach secured a bid by reaching the gold pool on Day 3 with the help of trickle down.

25. Coast catches San Gabriel in 15s Division race

Coast and San Gabriel fought it out all season for the top spot in the SCVA 15s Division points standings. At least one finished first at every mandatory and Regionals. It was San Gabriel holding down first place heading into Regionals. However, San Gabriel missed the final for the first time and finished tied for third. With Coast going on to win Regionals, it allowed Coast to jump San Gabriel in the points standings and finish the SCVA season in first place.

24. A pair of top 18s teams miss out on automatic Open bids

It all worked out in the end, but Long Beach and Wave needing to rely on at-large bids to make the Open field was a story and a key part of the season. Long Beach’s qualifying process was over before April, when Long Beach missed out on qualifying at So Cal and Pacific Northwest. Long Beach lost key matches to San Gabriel and AJV, both in three games, and spent the next month knowing it needed an at-large bid to qualify. As for Wave, it also didn’t qualify at So Cal, but figured to have a good chance at Far Western. Instead, Wave’s hopes were dashed on Day 2 and Wave spent the final day playing in Reno also knowing it needed an at-large bid to qualify. Together, it was one of more surprising developments of the year.

23. Long Beach 16s bounces back to qualify

Every team that qualifies for Open play is a good story, but some are more dramatic and standout over others. Long Beach 16s is an example of that. It’s hard to go from despair to jubilation quicker than Long Beach did in qualifying. The team was knocked out of bid contention on Day 1 of the So Cal Qualifier in a surprising occurrence. Less than a week later, Long Beach had its Open bid secured after traveling to Spokane and coming through at that qualifier.

22. Rancho Valley 18s reaches finals at Vegas Classic

The Vegas Classic isn’t the most important tournament of the season in terms of final results, but it’s certainly one of the most exciting. Teams aren’t playing for a bid, so that type of pressure is off. It’s also the first time the 18s and 17s get to see teams from other regions. There are a lot of things to like about it, so it’s even better when SCVA teams fare well. This year it was Rancho Valley carrying the torch by reaching the finals of the 18s Open, where Rancho Valley finished runner up to Imi Ike. It was Rancho Valley’s first loss of the season and made Rancho Valley the SCVA team to beat at the time.

21. Laguna Beach beats Tstreet for So Cal 16s Open title/3 SCVA teams qualify

The So Cal Qualifier was held at the Los Angeles Convention this season and it was as if the Hollywood producers got a hold of the scripts. It wasn’t so much that three 16s Open SCVA teams earned bids that was surprising as much as it was the way it happened. Laguna Beach defeated Tstreet in the gold-medal match, ending Tstreet’s dominance to a small degree. In addition, San Gabriel joined Laguna and Tstreet in receiving bids. San Gabriel wasn’t exactly a bid favorite considering it started the SCVA season in Division 2 and hadn’t been playing its best heading into the qualifier. However, San Gabriel came on and made it a clean sweep for the region.

20. Coast 17s, Laguna Beach 16s find qualifier success

The pair turned in terrific qualifying seasons, both winning two qualifiers. Both finished first in their respective age groups at So Cal. Coast came back to defeat Long Beach in the 17s Open final after losing to Long Beach on Day 2. A few weeks later, Coast went to Kansas City and finished first at the ShowMe Qualifier. Laguna Beach defeated Tstreet in the 16s Open final at the So Cal Qualifier before winning at the NorthEast Qualifier.

19. San Gabriel, TCA produce JN’s instant classic at 15s Open

The background to the two SCVA teams meeting during pool play at JN’s was TCA just beat San Gabriel in a one-game playoff in the semis of Regionals about two weeks earlier. It was TCA’s first victory over San Gabriel and now TCA needed to beat San Gabriel to have any hope of making it out of pool. San Gabriel outlasted TCA in three games, 27-29, 25-15, 20-18, fighting off six match points against. It was one of the better matches of the season in any division and came at a critical time of pool play, making it a deserving moment.

18. Rancho Valley 16s pushes Arizona Storm to three

Arizona Storm ended up prevailing and moving on from the quarterfinal meeting in the 16s Open at Junior Nationals, but for a while there it looked like Rancho Valley was about to pull off one of the biggest upsets of the year. Arizona Storm, which won gold as a 15s team as well, was the heavy favorite all season to collect another gold. Yet, Rancho Valley took the first set off Arizona Storm and was close midway through the second. From there, Arizona Storm took control, but it was still one of the more exciting moments.

17. Wave 15s goes undefeated at So Cal Qualifier

With Wave playing up in the 16s Division, the question remained how did Wave stack up with other 15s teams from the region. The first chance to find out came at the So Cal Qualifier and the answer was delivered in clear fashion. Wave went 9-0 and took home the gold. In the meantime, it established itself as the 15s team to beat, though SCVA teams wouldn’t get another shot until JN’s.

16. Golden West 18s qualifying at Reno

Coming through in the clutch is always a good story and that’s what Golden West was able to do at the Far Western Qualifier. After a disappointing showing at the So Cal Qualifier, where Golden West was out of contention after Day 2, the club’s last chance at qualifying came at Reno. There wasn’t going to be an at-large bid for Golden West, so it needed to earn it outright. In a remarkable performance, Golden West produced a three-day run good enough to secure an Open bid.

15. Long Beach, Sunshine 18s go extra time

In one of the most incredible matches of the year, Long Beach topped Sunshine, 38-36, 25-23, during Day 2 action of the 18s Open So Cal Qualifier. The victory eventually led to Long Beach advancing from pool, while Sunshine was out of contention after the second day.

14. Mavericks 18s finishes first at Mandatory 3

The 18s Division was unpredictable during SCVA play and none more than Mavericks coming through and finishing first at the third mandatory. Mavericks was coming off a frustrating showing at the So Cal Qualifier and responded in dramatic fashion. Mavericks defeated Tstreet in the finals and Coast in the semis. Mavericks would become one of four teams to finish first in Division 1, the others being Tstreet, Wave and Coast 17s.

13. San Gabriel leads the Open pack

When it came to qualifying teams for Open, none were better in the SCVA than San Gabriel in 2014. The club qualified five age groups for Open, including the 13s, 14s, 15s, 16s and 18s. It was also one of the best showings among clubs nationally.

12. Tstreet 16s rules the SCVA schedule

A certain element of sports is about dominance and no one dominated the SCVA like Tstreet 16s. It opened the season seeded No. 1 overall in qualifying and ended it in the top spot by a large margin. Tstreet reached the finals of every mandatory and Regionals, finishing first all but one time.

11. SCVA teams grab 16s Open bids in Reno

It’s one thing for the SCVA squads to own at the local qualifier, but to go to Far Western and secure all three available Open bids is something else. It was an amazing performance from a trio of 16s teams, as Mavericks, Rancho Valley and West all clinched their Open bids outright and making it another sweep for the region. Only Rancho Valley stood a good chance at receiving an at-large bid, so Mavericks and West had no choice but to earn bids at Reno. Mavericks and West were together, along with Tstreet, in the final round of pool play. Due to trickle down, all three teams clinched before the end of pool, making for one of the top headlines of the season.

10. TCA 16s earns a bid in Philly

TCA wasn’t in the group of teams considered favorites to qualify for Open. In fact, it had a rough showing at the So Cal Qualifier and it made qualifying at NorthEast look like a long shot. With Coast in the 16s Open field as well, it figured that would be the SCVA team to gain a bid. Instead, TCA put it together at the right time and came away with an Open bid in stunning fashion. It was the type of effort that gives hope to any team trying to qualify for Open, because anything can happen over the course of three days.

9. Coast, Sunshine finish 1-2 in 18s Open at ShowMe

At the time, it felt like the SCVA was lacking qualified teams for 18s Open. That changed in one weekend when Coast and Sunshine went to Kansas City and left with the only two available bids. Coast defeated Sunshine during pool play on Day 2. Sunshine came back to beat Coast in pool play on Day 3. It led to a series of one-game playoffs, with Coast eventually defeating Sunshine for first place, while Sunshine took second.

8. Tustin makes noise in 16s Division

The 16s Division had a bit of a wild card feel to it during SCVA play. Outside the top few teams, it felt like anyone could beat anyone in any given match. No one seemed to take advantage of this more than Tustin, which somewhat surprisingly remained in Division 1 all season and ended up finishing No. 6 overall in the point standings. It twice included Tustin reaching the semis. Tustin finished first in American Division at the So Cal Qualifier, but eventually received a National bid for JN’s, coming in 13th.

7. Laguna Beach heartbreak

For Laguna Beach 18s and 15s teams, the only luck they had at JN’s was bad luck. In stunning and gut-wrenching scenarios, both squads finished 5-2 in their respective Open pools. However, both were in three-way ties and neither was on the good end of the tiebreakers. Both finished fourth and missed out on advancing. Whenever a team goes 5-2 and finishes in fourth place, it’s heartbreaking. It’s doubly painful when it happens to the same club twice in a matter of days.

6. Wave 15s hits the medal stand

It’s a great accomplishment any time a team earns an Open medal. For Wave 15s, taking home the bronze and leaving with a medal was the culmination of a season that started with the purpose of being on that stand at the end. By winning the So Cal Qualifier, finishing runner up at the Big South and earning a medal at JN’s, Wave proved it was one of the best 15s teams in the nation this season. It also added something that Wave needed to beat SCVA mate Tstreet in the quarterfinals to clinch a medal.

5. Wave sweeps Long Beach to medal in 18s Open

These two teams were mentioned earlier because neither was able to secure an Open bid outright. Instead, teams that relied on at-large bids ended up meeting in the quarterfinals at JN’s and playing for a medal. It was a remarkable story, as one of their seasons was going to end with a medal. After both experienced disappointments from not qualifying outright, it was fascinating to see the teams fight for a medal. Wave ended up sweeping Long Beach, which had defeated Wave twice during the season, both in three games.

4. SCVA clubs duke it out in 18s Open at So Cal Qualifier

There might not have been a more intense, more dramatic day all season than Day 3 of the 18s Open at the So Cal Qualifier. A lot of that had to with the fact it involved six local teams in Wave, Club West and Tstreet, which were in one pool together, and Coast, Laguna Beach and Rancho Valley, which were in another pool together. Both pools ended in three-way ties and needed one-game playoffs to determine first place. By taking first place, teams received automatic Open bids based on the trickle down that was in effect. So that set the stage for a dramatic series of events, one that set the tournament way behind in scheduling. In Pool 1, Wave defeated Tstreet, but Club West beat Wave and then Tstreet downed Club West. Wave came back to beat Club West in the one-game playoff, but Tstreet topped Wave in the one-game playoff to take first. In Pool 4, Coast swept Laguna Beach, which then beat Rancho Valley, which produced a big comeback to take down Coast. Rancho Valley then beat Laguna Beach in the one-game playoff, before producing an all-time comeback against Coast, rallying from down 20-12 and winning 27-25 to secure a bid.

3. Tstreet rises from ashes in 15s Open at JN’s

Tstreet appeared to be out of contention after going 0-3 on the first day of the 15s Open at JN’s. However, Tstreet ran off five consecutive victories and reached the quarterfinals. It included beating A5 in three games o stay alive on Day 2. Tstreet then swept San Gabriel in the challenge round to move one victory away from medaling. In the quarters against Wave, Tstreet ended up falling in three games, losing 15-13 in the third. From 0-3 to only a couple points away from medaling, it was a special performance from Tstreet.

2. Club West 17s collects bronze medal

It really goes back to last year, when as a 16s team Club West won only one match at JN’s. As if unable to catch a break, Club West finished in third place at the So Cal Qualifier this season but failed to get an Open bid with only two available. Club West was on its second coach at that point, moving on to its third by the time it did qualify in Philly. There was also the fact Club West had been the third-best 17s team in the SCVA all season, behind Coast and Long Beach. That changed at JN’s, when Club West fought back from a loss in its first match of pool play to eventually win the pool and advance straight to the quarterfinals. There, Club West swept Circle City to secure its bronze.

1. Coast defeats Wave in 18s Open final at JN’s

There could be no other No. 1 this season, as the So Cal dream final took place between rival clubs with the gold medal in the balance. It was Coast prevailing in three games, the second time in three seasons the group has claimed the gold medal. It ended an undefeated run for Coast. As for Wave, it capped a season that culminated in a silver medal.
