Tournament Cancelled

After a disappointing first day at the Bid tournament, Mizuno Cincy Classics 15 Black set the tone for the remainder of the second day by playing exceptionally well against Toledo Volleyball Club. We placed 6th in that tournament with a loss to our own Red team and Atlantis (again!). But it was enough to get us to Atlanta. Our first day in Atlanta was tough, but the girls never gave up. We finished 3rd in our pool with only one win against New York Volleyball Club and two losses against Colorado Juniors and Palm Beach. The second day came with more enthusiasm and more drive to win. We finished 2nd but only after a tough loss in the first game against Faribault Red. But we beat teams from Hawaii and Front Range, and the girls were very excited. Things were getting better with back-to-back wins on the second day. The third day brought great teamwork and great volleyball. We won our pool with wins against RVC and Adidas Select, and the girls were more excited than ever. With four straight wins under our belts, we headed into day four with our heads held high and with great confidence. Day four turned out to be a victorious one, as we beat Circle City Juniors to walk away Flight 3 winners. With seven straight match wins and a win in our final game as a team, the girls went home winners!
