15 Hawks Swoop In for a Win (2/19/12)
The 15 Hawks' 2012 tournament season got off to a strong start. They competed in their first 16 Regional tournament on February 19 at Phillips Hall. They went undefeated in pool play, not even losing a set. They beat Positively Charged Volleyball Club 16 Griffis, Blue Crush 16 Black, and Cincy East VBC 15 American Navy. After each match we talked about coming back to the next match and stepping it up a level. They certainly accomplished that goal. After a short break in play, they came back in the quarterfinals and defeated Positively Charged Volleyball Club 16 Chaney in 2 sets as well. In probably the toughest match of the day, the semifinals, they beat a strong Blue Crush 16 Blue team. Again, the girls stepped up their level of play. They were down in the first set, but came back and won in a close set after making some great defensive plays. The second set was also very tight, unfortunately we came out on the losing end. The girls made the adjustments the coaches asked of them, and won the 3rd set in convincing fashion. In the finals, although mentally and physically tired from the semis, the 15 Hawks defeated Cincy East VBC 16 in 2 sets. They are looking forward to their next tournament in Pickerington on February 26.
