17 Hawks Win the NKJV Aces Challenge (5/1/11)
The 17 Hawks continued playing solid volleyball, winning the NKJV Aces Challenge. Always a very solid tournament, because this is an open tournament there is a mix of National-, American-, and Club-level teams coming to town. We saw teams from West Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee, but in the end the top four teams were all from the Ohio Valley Region. So we knew we had a dog fight on our hands. But the Hawk players came through, making the adjustments we needed to win. This Hawks team is not only one of the top defensive teams I've ever coach, it's simply one of my favorites teams of all time that I've coached, played, or been associated with.
