January 30th brought the U13’s their very first tournament of the year and what a great day it was! Being the only U13 team in the lineup, they had a long day ahead of them but were up for the challenge.

During round robin play they went up against Canuck in their first match and got out their tournament jitters They ended up losing both matches but both were very hard fought! Their second match saw them up against the Cochrane Jaguars Red team. With their first game under their belt, they played even better and won both matches!

Coming out 2nd in their pool, the girls headed into the crossover games. Their first game put them eye to eye with Canada West Black where they lost two straight sets but stayed close on their scores through both (which was fantastic considering this Canada West team went on to win the tournament). The second of the crossovers had them up against SAVC where they won both sets! Unfortunately, without a win against Canada West, the girls did not move forward to semi-finals.

There was a lot of smiles on and off the court – which is what we all love to see. Great job girls and we’re all looking forward to your first Alberta Volleyball tournament on the 27th and 28th of February in Edmonton.
