12U Girls Win Bronze at Ontario Open

Congratulations go out to the Region of Waterloo Volleyball Club Tigers 12U Black Girls team for winning the bronze medal at the Ontario Open hosted in London at Supreme Courts.  The team started the day off by splitting their first match with Predators Fusion.  They went on to badly beat the Predator 11U Purple team two straight before facing some stiff competition and losing two straight to eventual tournament champion Halton Hurricanes Black.  The Tigers finished original pool play in 3rd place which set them up to play the host London Sharks Great Whites in the quarter finals where the Tigers won 25-23 and 25-14.  The team was to face the Halton Hurricanes Black once again in the semi-final but went down two straight 19 and 17.  After a lengthy break the Tigers went on to play the Predators Fusion again and the Preds beat the Tigers in set one 25-22.  This loss did not hold well with the team and they worked hard to come back and beat the Preds in the next two sets 25-20 and 15 to 10.  This was the Tigers first medal win of their program and they are hoping this is just the beginning of a long medal haul in future tournaments.  The future is definitely bright for these young ladies.  A special thanks goes out to one of our practice players “Una” for helping them out all day long.
