As the season approaches to the end, our team completed the first part of our journey competing at the local Regional. During the first day 16U1 demonstrated that team work it is all what it takes to finish strong.

During the first date, our team went 3-0 taking starting with a great game against HPSTL 16 White. During this game we had a shaky start, but with the good serves we took control back and won after a great comeback. On Sunday, we had a great start winning the first game in 2 sets against TC Select 16 putting in face to face against SLM 16KL. During this game the girls worked the hardest in keeping control of the ball, blocking, hitting, and passing. Sadly after a great battle on the court we ended up third in Bronze after losing the game in three sets.

We had our ups and we had our downs. I can only say, this group of players is very resilient. It does not matter what I toss at them on the court, they will work together and complete their task.

Now let’s get ready for AAU Nationals 2016. Go Illini West.
