The weekend started off with Pool play on Saturday.
3 very tough matches
Adrenaline 15 Black-W
Crusher’s 15s -W
Illinois Heat 15s -W
Started off a busy weekend 3-0 match play. It wasnt without ups and downs. This team is as strong as any I have coached. They have never given up on one another. Havent given up on their coaches. They battle hard every game. We aren’t perfect, but we work hard every game.

Sunday Pool Play
Union 15 Black -L
303VBA 15Bravo -W
Imperial Intensity-W
Started off Sunday with a loss to a great Union squad. Wow what a team. Lots of skill and fire. Wow what a Libero!! we couldnt get much on her. We battled and fought and played hard. They just was better then us in that match. Hard fought victories against very tough 303 and Intensity teams ended out Sunday. 2nd in pool….still onto the Gold Bracket!!!
Started off with POA Green. Great team and we battled with some ups and downs. Had to switch things up and try different lineup..whatever it takes. We pulled it off in 3 to move on. Next match..our new rivals….Rockwood Thunder Carolina. We have played them 2 times this year. 1-1…..
We battled hard for 3 sets…27-25 us, 25-18 them….then 15-11.
We gave it our all…battled hard for each other. Gave them everything we had left. It just wasn’t enough on this day.

We finished 5TH overall out of 64 teams.

What a great job by all our girls. Great Job by my assistant Coach Abby. We have been without 2 key players for most of our season so far. We have borrowed players and switched lineups to try different things. That is volleyball. That is life …adapt and overcome. We will battle adversity and we will work harder. We will overcome! We are H215Cardinal!!
Back into the gym tonight…we will work hard..we will improve…If we want to be the best…we have to beat the best!

Let’s Go H215Cardinal!!!

15 Cardinal Flowing at FloValley


Wow another fun filled weekend! Volleyball Saturday was super exciting. We played in our 2nd Tournament. H2UA Flo Valley!

The girls showed up eager and ready to play. We have 3 hurt with injuries so several girls playing different positions. But we adapt and overcome and play for each other.

1st place in our Pool:

5-1 in Pool play only set lost to our new rival lol Crossfire Elite. Great team. 3rd match against them already this year.

Bracket Play:
1 bracket for everyone.
We battled with a very tough In10sity team. Girls played tough through lineup changes and everything. Hey we got Lexi back a little! She had a concussion and is recovered…we are working her in slow. Now only down 2 girls.
We won in 2 sets

2nd match:

Very tough Springfield Shock Team. Another lineup change to make the girls a bit more comfortable. Kinda getting back to our original lineup. With our OH and Middle still out. But some what normal. We battled and beat them in 2 sets.


Very strong St. Charles Inferno team. We fought and played hard. Tried to hang with them as long as we could. They just proved to be better then us that day. We lost in 2 sets.

2nd place in Gold. I’m so proud of these young ladies. Playing hard through adversity, and troubled times. 2 players hurt and rotation changes. Makes for a long hard day. But they battled and smiled and hung tough. Looking forward to practice on Tuesday. Ready to work on this new lineup and get ready for another exciting weekend.
Thanks Ladies
Thanks Parents
Thanks Coaches

We could not do it without all of you!



Park Hills – 15 Cardinal Climbing

Saturday at Park Hills started early. Our first tournament as a new team! Seven new girls and one of those new from Kentucky! We have been meshing well in practice and Gateway League week 1. Started off the day with a 5-1 pool play record. Dropping our only set to a very tough Crossfire team.

Gold Bracket:
Started off against a strong Perryville team. They are always tough and today provedto be the same. We pulled it out in two sets.
Next game was against a team we have played once already this season. Show Me Diamond.
We pulled off a two set victory against them. On to the Championship….yes against Crossfire!!

Here we are for a little revenge! We split in pool play. Now we play to 25 and have a 3rd set if needed. Well…we needed it.
They beat us in the first set. As the girls came to the bench I told them…its now or never. Lets go get em. That is what they did. We secured the second set. Onto the third…I pulled a little mental help. We won the toss and I had the captain pick side of court. All the sets against them we lost…yes were on the same side. So we started there. And ended on our good side!
Victory in the third set!!! Making us Gold Champs!
First tournament win this season!!

We learned a lot…covering, and cheering. Serving and the importance of teamwork and communication. We will be working on it all in practice. Our goals are to get better every week. So far so good! Keep it up H2 15 Cardinal!!
