The 16U Girls Black team kicked off the year with the Volleyball BC ‘A’ Season Opener at Harry Jerome last Sunday. Air Attack went 1-1 in pool play losing a very tight match to Action 2-0 (30-32, 26-28) in which both sets went to extra points to determine a winner. They girls rebounded in their next match taking the match comfortably against the North Shore Stars 2-0 (25-16, 25-17), placing them second in their pool. The first playoff round was against VVC Black. After a bit of a slow start but still winning the first set 25-21, the girls took the second and deciding set 25-10 to advance to the semifinals where they lost to the eventual winners, Harumbi. Air Attack would get a rematch against Action for the Bronze medal and would this time pull through for third place.
