The 15u Legend girls placed fifth in their first Select tournament!! After finishing 3rd in their pool, the girls fought hard in the afternoon games to come up with 3 solid team efforts. Kennedy Millin was our quarter back for the day – effectively running the middle attack and scoring several key points on setter dumps. Hope Nicholson, Kyra Cameron and Lina Elkayed played a strong pass and serve game, while middles Ava Willms, Nicole Willms and Penny Gomes ran an impressive fast attack in the middle. Outside hitter Kaity Doyle anchored the offense and Lauren MacPhail’s big hits and slicing serve scored several key points. Jessica Pathe ( recovering from an injury) came in to serve and both Jess and Shelby Wensink ( also injured) did a phenomenal job leading the cheering section. These Legend girls play with heart and support each other with amazing attitudes!! Our MVP is Kennedy Millin!! Kennedy showed great leadership on and off of the court!!
The 15u rival came home with there second silver medal on Saturday!! The girls started slow, but after lunch they were unstoppable. They needed to play 4 games after lunch to win a medal, and one by one they knocked off the top teams in the tournament. Overall they played 15 sets of volleyball, including a 19-17 victory in the semis. Everyone on the team had there best tournament yet, but the mvp was Maddie Tyler. Maddie played all but one set after lunch. She served tough, played great defence, and led the team in kills.
Our 16u Legend boys had a great showing at our first premier tournament. Tight games against pakmen gold and storm put us out of the medal rounds but great play by all supporting cast put us in 5th place. That moves us up two places in the rankings. MVP goes to all of our middles who played competitively and kept us in games. Notable moments was the 24-26 loss to storm in the quarters. And the come back win against Forrest city in the round pool play.

The 12U Rapids Legend team had an impressive first official tournament. The Legend finished in first place going 11 and 1. Over those 12 sets of volleyball, opponents just managed an average of 14 points against the 12U’s stingy defence. All 10 team members showed noticeable improvement, individually and as a team. The girls played with spirit, intensity and skill. So far this season, against 12U opponents (including exhibition matches), our girls have a 24 and 2 record! They have yet to drop 2 sets to a single opponent. There is still a lot of upside to tap into on this team. Hard and focused work is bringing success. Our tournament MVP was Mattea DiBacco. With an unwavering passion for the game, she was our team leader in kills, ball control and team spirit!

This past weekend our 15u Boys had 1 vision – Premier! They worked as a team, with the trust, respect, and care they have for each other allowing them to achieve their goal!

15u Legend had a great day competing at the 16u tournament!! Our goal was to practice running a fast tempo in the middle and we were very successful meeting that goal!!
We were first in our pool in the morning but lost a very close battle in the quarter final game. We won the next two games to end up 5th in the tournament. Hats off to Kennedy Millin who learned a 5 – 1 on the fly and Kyra Cameron who set the quick ball very well. Hope Nicholson proved to be a very affective right side attacker. Nicole Willms and Penny Gomes were outstanding in the iddle with several very strong quick attacks. Kaity Doyle brought her usual great energy and hard hitting game and Lauren MacPhail had several phenomenal serving runs. Injured players Shelby Wensink and Jess Pathe were a very committed cheering section – thanks for showing everyone what it means to be part of a team!!
