U14 Chris headed to Sherbrooke on May 6th to play in the National East event. The girls were very excited to be going away as a team one final time this year.
We played in a tough opening pool on Friday, finishing third, which placed us in division three. 
After a slow start on day one, Attack came out with some renewed energy on Saturday and went 3-0. On Sunday, we defeated Daibols from Trois Rivieres and Waterloo to get to our pool finals. We faced Ottawa Fushion in a very exciting match. Attack took game one 25-20, with Ottawa winning game two 23-25. Attack came up just short in the deciding game 15-17. Congratulations girls on winning silver in your pool!
Girls, we’ve had a fun year and you played well.  A gold in Rochester, two bronze in OVA events and a year-ending silver.  We have all made new friends.  In fact, the coach from Toronto West recently sent an email to our club President highlighting the sportsmanship that both teams displayed in Sherbrooke, as we cheered each other to victory. You should be proud of your accomplishments.
To our parent rep Lyla, thank you everything. You have put in countless hours towards this team and we are grateful. To Chris, Melanie, Darik and Jacek you have provided a wonderful learning environment for the girls. We cannot thank you enough for your tremendous commitment to this team. They have developed as volleyball players and as young ladies. Thank you to the parents. We hosted a great tournament in Whitby and we all contributed to the team in some way.  
See you all at the beach.
