WINTER 2020 HOUSE LEAGUE

NEWS & UPDATES

15u Rapids Storm – Gold

December 7, 2019
The girls, while shorthanded without 2 rotation players, had a great morning fighting to 1st place in their pool.  The team was faced with some tougher competition and persevered as a team to go undefeated while never dropping a single set all day!  All the girls deserve praise for their effort and camaraderie, playing hard for their teammates who couldn’t be on the court!  Way to go Storm!!!

12u Rapids Power

The 12U Power team played in their first ever OVA seeding tournament. The girls gained a ton of experience and had some fun along the way.

16u Rapidfire – Silver

November 23, 2019  – Hustle and celebration was the best part of the 16u Rapidfire effort  at Brock University where they competed in a  17u Championship tournament. Rapidfire ended up third in their pool after a dismal morning of competition. The turnaround in attitude and effort in the afternoon was astonishing with 3 straight wins to place the girls in the gold medal game. Rapidfire emerged with the silver medal after a well fought battle against the Smash Raiders Generation.  Huge thanks to the very supportive parents on this team for cheering, feeding and believing.   Our MVP of the tournament was libero Lina Elkayed who dug some incredible defensive balls and passed beautifully on serve receive and whose voice was always encouraging.  Love this team!!

13u Rapids Thunder – Gold

November 16, 2019 – This weekend our girls 13u Rapids Thunder competed in the Provincial Cup tournament in North York at Havergal College.  The girls started the day with a great effort against a strong Oakville Thunder team.  They came out strong and took it right to them claiming their first victory.  They took that start and built on it all throughout the day,not dropping a set until the championship game.

Every game they played, they gained more confidence and became more efficient. The girls showed that with a total team effort that they have what it takes to stand above the rest. It was a long day but there at the end of it, there stood our young ladies.  After a tough fought final, (again against the Oakville Thunder) our girls were able to call themselves champions. It was a hard fought match that saw lots of great play on both sides of the net.  The team had to dig deep late in the third set, and figure out a way to focus and find that next gear to push past their opponents and claim the victory.  As coaches it was great to see the team take what they’ve been learning and execute when they had to.

Every one of the girls played very well but a we would like to take a moment to acknowledge, Matea Dibacco, and Aurora Blundell for their steady play in every match.  Ali Schultz and Madi Haverkamp both showed a great ability to refocus and be two players  we can count on down the stretch.
The most exciting thing that we take out of this first tournament of the year is that every member of our team, contributed in one way or another at a crucial part of a point or game. This lets us know we have a team of MVP’s.  We can’t wait to do it all over again.
Great job ladies!  Your coaches and parents are all very proud of how you’ve started the season.
Keep it up!!

17u Rapids Boys – Silver

November 16, 2019 – The Rapids 17U boys Legend team travelled to Kitchener on Saturday to play up in an 18U Championship tournament and came home with Silver.  The boys fought hard all day, finishing first in their pool.  They showed their tenacity in the semi-final game, dropping the first set but winning the next two, including a come-from-behind win in the third set, down 8-3 and eventually winning 15-13.  The only match they lost was in the finals to a tough MAC 18U team but kept it close with outstanding defense.  Tournament MVP goes to Evan Kritz, who in is his Rapids debut was a near unstoppable offensive force!

16u Rapids Boys – Silver
