Air Attack 16U Girls Black 3rd at Season Opener

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.
