17 Cardinal Tops #1-Ranked 17s Team

17 Cardinal kicked off its 2014 season with an 18s tournament at Greenville College last Saturday. Despite falling to Rockwood 18 Mizuno in the final match, H2 17 Cardinal finished with second place honors after a tremendous semi final match against the current first place team in the Gateway Region, Show Me Rox 171. With the help of Madison Ruble from 17 Black, the team was able to over come two injuries and defeat Show Me in two sets (19-15, 19-14). “I’m really proud of how the girls came together in that match,” say head coach Alex Hess. “Every single player contributed to this victory. We still have a few kinks to work out, but this was certainly a terrific way to start to the season.”

    I’m not sure who number 14 is, but she served, set, and hit amazingly well. What a hardworking and talented young lady!
