This weekend H2 14 Under Armour embarked on their first “official” tournament of the season. Any many instances, you would think that 14 year old girls would be intimidated in playing in a 15’s tournament, but not this group of girls. From the moment the team stepped on the court, you could feel the comradery and togetherness. These girls had a common goal and pulled together to get it done.
We finished first in pool play not dropping a single set! We finished 19-8 and 19-9 against Adrenaline 15, 19-8 and 19-13 against K Elites 15 Pink, 19-15 and 19-16 against St. Charles Stars making us first in our pool. In the semifinals, we won 19-8 and 19-9 against JVNBC 15 leaving us to face our toughest competition (and sister team) H2 15 Crimson Columbia.
In each of the sets, the girls showed mental toughness and never gave up coming back from a deficit. In the end, we did not get the final result we wanted, but I truly believe that each of the girls learned something new about themselves. It was fantastic to see that all the hard work in practice and memorizing plays is paying off.
I couldn’t be more proud of these wonderful girls. 2nd in a 15’s tournament is not to shabby!
H2 on 2!
