The AVA U14 Provincials were held April 26th – 27th in Calgary at the University of Calgary where the 403 team placed 5th overall.  The girls started strong winning all their Pool D matches on Saturday.  On Sunday the team played the Sparks Flare in the crossover game.  The team went on to win the match and then went on to face their rivals from last year the NAV Panda’s.  A thrilling match it was, going down to the third set where eventually NAV prevailed and won the last set by a score of 16-14.  The team then played Canada West for 5th place winning the match in 2.  NAV eventually lost the final game to the Canuck Crackle team.

The team held a baby shower for Coach Diane during their break on Saturday.  The team now says goodbye to Diane as they prepare for Nationals and she prepares for the upcoming arrival of the new addition to the family.  Many of the team had the pleasure of having Diane coach them for two very successful, fun filled seasons and they will miss her guidance very much.  They all can’t wait to see the baby pictures!
