February 02, 2019 – Congrats go out to the 13u Legend Girls who recently competed in Richmond Hill at 14u and took home a Silver medal! Awesome play by all as they only had 8 players who were up against much older and bigger teams, but that proved no problem for the mentally and technically awesome 13u Rapids Legends! The girls won 8 sets and only lost 2 all day to the eventual champions. Best point of the tourney goes out to Olivia Jones for an awesome dig.

12u Legend Girls – 4th

February 02, 2019 – Niagara Rapids 12U Legend finished 4th at the 13U McGregor Cup on February 2nd.  They certainly had some of their longest rallies of the season.  After the last 13U tournament when the Waterloo Tigers defeated us in 3, our Legend team exacted some revenge from their chirping older opponents by winning  in 2 straight sets during the quarters.  Though our 12U’s eventually lost the bronze-medal match in 3, they earned the respect of their opponents and parents through their gritty defence and offensive boldness. Kate Chatwin provided stability on defense; Emily Pathe improved her game as a setter; Melissa Colbey upped her game in the playoffs; Maddy Havercamp personified determination; Mattea DiBacco led the team in kills; and, Mila Burattini was our most improved player.

15u Legend Boys – Silver

February 02, 2019 – “Volleyball is one of the most interactive games going. It is a game of intuition, imagination, improvisation – but most of all, of reciprocity – of teamwork. There is no way to free-lance in volleyball”. The boys today showed that it took teamwork today to succeed. Having a difficult pool play the team bounced back and played a great quarter final.  Game 2 down 19 -24 – Tyler came in and served out the match with some great plays but all. SHOWED Heart. Attitude, Respect and Determination/Dedication. (HARD). We are back in premier!  Silver we will take it!  Last tournament of the year we will be in premier until OVA. MVPs:  Many great moments but all. Jack and Cam will share the honour this tournament.  Cam coming off an injury played exceptional at the net.  Jack finally listened to his coaches and utilized his best serve – The spinner. Thanks again to the parents!
