Game one saw the girls come out tentatively, losing their first match of the day. They found their focus though and some of their best ball of the season to a second place finish in their pool. By raising their serving and passing game to a new level they won their first playoff match in two straight sets against the Castor Raiders. In their semi-final game, the girls lost to a very hard serving Lacombe Lithium team. Despite falling behind early in both sets of this match, the girls showed resolve by battling hard and refusing to fold easily. In the playoff for the Bronze medal, they beat the Bearspaw Grizzlies in two straight sets; serving out the last two points of the final set for a 25-22 win. Coach Elise said it was “amazing to see them start to come together this weekend” Way to go team!
