17U Provincial Cup
St. Brother Andre Catholic School, Markham, ON
This past weekend, 16U Intensity played in its first OVA tournament of the season hosted by OuttaHand Volleyball in Markham. It was a great day filled with laughter, excitement, hard work, and pure INTENSITY! The girls showed great energy on and off the court and their willingness to dive for every ball showed throughout the day.
Intensity started the day off strong placing second in its pool which gave the team the momentum to move on to a great quarter final win against a very tall 17U Galaxy Nova team. In the semi finals, Intensity faced last year’s National East silver medalists, 16U Reach Synergy. While the girls battled hard against this very skilled team, Intensity did not come out ahead and would move on to the bronze medal match against 17U Galaxy Black. Intensity needed to work hard for every point but the day would end with a fourth place finish in this ten team tournament – not a bad start for a newly formed 16U team playing in a 17U tournament.
Looking forward to the rest of the season!
