H2 15 Cardinal played in the Jammin in January event hosted at Oakville Senior HS on Sunday January 10th. The girls were ranked first in their pool to start the day and they kept it that way at the end of pool play with a record of 5-1. They lost first set against Wentzville Heat then remained undefeated in pool play the rest of the day.
First match of bracket play, the girls met RC Flyers first ranked team. They dropped the first set to RC 19/12 before collecting themselves and taking set 2 19/16 forcing a 3rd game. In a nail biting 3rd set the girls fell behind first with RC Flyers leading 8/5. After switching sides, the girls went on a run with service aces tying it up. The game went point for point until we got to 12. RC Flyers took the last three points to win the match 15/12. It was a heart breaking loss but a game full of grit and competition. The girls gave 100% and fighting back to force the 3rd game proved that.
Our record for the day was 6-3 and we placed 3rd in the Gold division. Even though it was not the end result we were hoping for it was a great day of volleyball. We are back at it this week to prepare for our first appearance at the STL Premier Invitational. Looking forward to another great weekend of competition!
