Vipers Attack takes Silver!


Yesterday the 14U Attack team had a very successful day at the OVA McGregor Cup in the Championship division! The snow plows may have tried to slow the girls down on the way to the tournament, but not even they could come between the girls and their silver medal!

Attack was ranked 5th going into this tournament. After a limited warm up because of the weather, the girls were still able to beat Milton Edge in 3 sets! Their next game was against Pakmen Gold, the number 2 seed, but unfortunately the girls fell short in the 3rd set.

In the quarter-finals the girls fought hard, tried to stay calm, and beat another team in 3 sets by reducing their errors! This time, MVC Fuji. Attack then had a tough semi-final matchup against top ranked Oakville Thunder! The girls went into this game confident and won their ticket to the finals in 2 straight sets!! The girls played excellently, only missing 2 serves the whole game!!

In the finals, the Vipers had to face Pakmen again. Coach Dave said that, “the athletes played very well and defensively were digging hard hits to keep rallies going and making smart decisions offensively.” Unfortunately, Pakmen took the gold. However, this means that Attack only fell to one team all day!

The girls had an amazing tournament all around! Attack received a lot of feedback from other clubs, not only about how they played as a team, but also about the positivity the team brings on and off the court!

The Attack coaches were very proud to see these young girls playing at such a high level! Way to go Vipers!
