Tournament Cancelled

As a coach, you always want the Gold. This year, we achieved it. Although we did not finish #1, we finished as a bonded and accomplished team.

Sports Express finished 5th in Club at the 2003 JO Nationals in Atlanta, Georgia. We started this tournament out strong, winning every match the first day and making our hopes and dreams become more realistic. The first match of the tournament was against Utah Players, ranked first and returning Champions. SE came to Atlanta ready to PLAY! We took Utah Players in three games and this set the pace for the rest of the tournament.

We finished first in our pool and were up against another first-place team and two second-place teams the following day. The second day was another tough one. We were up against Maunalani, who we have heard was a fantastic team. We were not as successful against them, but they did end up winning the tournament this year. The third day of play, we knew we had to step it up in order to have a shot at winning it. We had our third loss against Mizuno Sports Performance White. It was devastating for us all. The girls played their hearts out and wanted this win more than anything. That third day was the most trying because we were faced with a playoff game for second place. This would decide which team would go into the Gold tournament for the final day of play. Sports Express was unbeatable! They played with everything they had. It came down to who wanted it more. The outcome... SPORTS EXPRESS!!

The next day we found out that we were up against Utah Players again. We knew that they wanted us. They were out for the kill. The match went to three games, but the end was not as good. We ended our season with a loss to the returning champions, whom we beat just three days prior. Tears were shed and hugs were given. I couldn't have asked for a better team to coach. These young athletes have amazing futures with volleyball and life. The love they have for the game is immeasurable. Our experience in Atlanta will never be forgotten. Way to play, girls.
