The 17U Selects were undefeated at Premier 3, dropping only 2 sets all weekend en route to the Division 2 gold medal. 

Day 1: 

First up was a familiar foe, Velocity 18U from Grande Prairie. They avenged their loss in the Premier 2 final by taking it in straight sets 26-24, 25-18. They continued with wins over SAS Green 18 and Medicine Hat VC 18 to secure 1st place in their pool. The crossover brought up the Pandas 17U, their first 17U opponent since Premier 1, and the Selects came away with a 25-14, 25-14 victory.

Day 2: 

With the goal of a favorable seeding for Provincials secured, the Selects continued their winning ways with straight-set victories over GPRC Wolves 17U and NOOKS 18U. The Selects started the final strong with a 25-20 1st set win, but ACE of Spades Red 18U fought hard, taking the 2nd set 27-25. The girls showed no signs of losing momentum, however, and prevailed in the 3rd set 15-7.

With 17U & 18U teams being divided for provincials, this puts the Selects in a top 8 seeding. Coach Erin thanked the girls for their confidence and calmness throughout the weekend, which they displayed even when down in a set.

Once again, the success of the weekend couldn’t have been possible without the support of all the parents, especially those who keep them so well-nourished in between matches. Having improved at every tournament this season, the 17U Selects are well-prepared for Provincials!
