16 Hawks Hawks Roll On and Win (4/18/10)

16 Hawks continue rolling through the 2010 season. Coach Heather got her first tournament win leading the Hawks at Withrow Court. I've always said the 16 Hawks revolve around no one person, whether the head coach or a player. We just reload and push forward. With Coach AL out of state Coach Heather stepped up, made key adjustments, and led the Hawks to victory. This is a well-oiled machine, with Heather dishing out sets to the big guns, Chole, Rebecca, Alex, Kylie, and Vanessa. These hitters just keep coming, like a shark smelling blood. But it all starts with the pass. I can't say enough on how Becca, Taylor, Jessica and Hannah keep feeding the ball up. If you can't pass you can't pound. A lot of individual first names and when it all comes together, the team name everyone knows is 16 Hawks... [tournament report]
