Tigers 15U Black place 3rd at Penn State tournament

The Tigers 15U Black team travelled to the heart of Pennsylvania to participate in the Happy Volley tournament hosted by the Penn State University.

After a successful Saturday of play, the Tigers 15U Black team competed in the Gold bracket against some very tough teams. They played some of their best volleyball against tough opponents.

On Monday, in the final day of competition, the quarter-final game pitted them against the 2nd ranked team in the 15U Club category – and beat them in 2 straight sets.  The semi-final game was against the team that won the Pool on Saturday.  This match up was close as they forced a third set but was a little overpowered by them.

A 3rd place finish in the Gold Division was an amazing accomplishment for these girls, finishing with the same rank as Storm Ice from Aurora, and played very well against the top 2 teams in the competition.

Congratulations Tigers 15U Black!
