13U Girls Blitz takes Gold in Markham

Another busy weekend for 13U Girls Blitz. In a provincial tune up, Blitz decided to play back to back tournaments in the same weekend. Many members of our team have not yet participated in a Provincial event and have not played a multi day tournament, so this weekend presented us with that unique opportunity.

Our weekend started out in Cambridge on Saturday where Blitz played a mix of 14 and 15U teams. It was a non-medal tournament and we played matches consisting of 2 sets only. We played a total of 10 sets against 5 teams and finished a with a very respectable 7-3 record. Our team continues to learn and adjust to the taller, older girls and we did a tremendous job of moving them around and making them work for every point.

Next up for Blitz was a 13U invitational tournament in Markham Sunday morning. We started out the day against Peel Selects. We dropped the opening set losing by 4 but was able to shake off a little early morning rust and came back and dominated the second set. That would be the only lost set of the day as Blitz ran through teams from EVP Eagles Black, Georgina, Georgian Cubs. Blitz would finish pool play tied for the best record in the tournament putting them in the Gold Medal game. This would set up a rematch with Peel Selects. This match however, was never in doubt. Blitz came out on fire and powered past Peel in 2 straight sets, giving Blitz their 3rd Gold Medal of the Season

The weekend was a total success and ticked off several of our late season goals. We continue to add to our Blitz toolbox and gained the valuable multi tournament day experience we were looking for. A well deserved Gold Medal was a nice reward for a group of hard working girls! 

Go Blitz!!!
