14u Rivals competed in OVA#3- McGregor Cup (at Trillium E) last Saturday in Richmond Hill. The team fought hard all day winning several matches (including two intense 3-set victories) ultimately earning a well deserved 3rd place BRONZE medal (their first this season). Each player contributed to the day’s success, with honorable mention to: Jessica Enns who unleashed 45 serves on our opponents. Kyleigh Tenbroek with an impressive 19 of 20 serve receives. And Ashley Burke who’s diving talent kept the play alive in key situations.
Overall, well done ladies! Let’s keep our streak alive at 15u this weekend! Goooooooo Rapids!
Congrats to our 17U Boys who captured silver at the 18u boys championship tournament this past weekend in London!
Our 16u Legend Girls had a great start to the new year as they won gold this past weekend in Georgetown at the Challenge Cup! The girls went undefeated all day! Awesome team effort and determination by everyone.
January 13, 2019 – The 13U Legend Boys didn’t drop a set all day end route to a Gold medal in Championship in London on Sunday! Also a huge congrats to our 13U Summit Boys who competed at the same tournament and won a thrilling 15-13 third set win to capture 5th place out of 12 teams. All 19 boys train together in the same gym every week, and support each other both on and off the court game after game! Congrats to both teams on their huge successes and overall growth and development!
January 13, 2019 – The 17u Summit Girls fought their way to a bronze medal in yesterday’s McGregor cup tournament. After a slow start in the morning the ladies turned it around in the afternoon and made their coaches proud.
January 13, 2019 – 17U Legend Girls finished first. The 17u Premier – McGregor Cup. So that would be double gold this weekend. Amazing job ladies.
January 12, 2019 – The 15u Legend Girls won gold playing up in 16u Championship – Challenge Cup.
January 12, 2019 – 16u Legend boys play up for bronze! Saturday was a fun day, played by all in a 17u tournament. Big wins in the pool play lead to us being 1st in our pool with an easy quarter final win. Close losses to Sky Volley put us in a bronze medal match with Pac-Man Black. It took 3 games but big blocks from middle Jaydon Hoadley and hard hits from middle Ben Leighton gave us the bronze medal win. Tournament MVP goes to Connor Emslie, who gave his all every game setting and Captain Nick Petruzella, who had some big hits but even better defence. A great way to start the new year.
January 12, 2019 – 17 U Legend Girls wins Gold in 18U Championship. The girls battles hard all day only dropping one set. Great playing by all players.
January 12, 2019 – Here are the 16U Summit girls from the weekend. The girls battled hard all day including a 31-29 victory and a huge rally from being down 17-2 to come back and win 25-23. The girls played hard but lost steam in the Bronze medal match to come 4th overall. Not a bad weekend for these girls. Special shout out to Kylie Doyle (#29), who set the girls up to win with an amazing day as our setter and Vanja Kljajic (#31) who never gave up and hustled to lead the girls in serves and kills for the day.
Congratulations to our 18u Boys who captured silver at Championship in Hamilton yesterday. Dealing with numerous injuries and calling some of our 17u legend boys up, the boys had to get creative with lineups as they had only one middle in the final game before ultimately dropping the third set 14-16. Good job boys!
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!!
