We had a great time this weekend playing Hiki No volleyball. These girls really performed once again with our make shift teams and playing out of their comfort zones. Huge life lessons and experience were made this past tournament, that we as coaches feel were finally hitting that Hiki No curve with self confidence, discipline and momentum. We’re on the rise and ain’t nothing holding us back. With our last 2 tourneys before regionals left, it’s time to fine tune our skills and progress. Can’t wait to see what the future holds for our keikis.

T.E.A.M. Hiki Nō 14-1 came into this tournament with the goals of never giving up, even when it’s been a long day, and playing smart.

We definitely had a strong overall day, even though we almost gave up at the end. We went through the day with some great comebacks and smart plays. We had some girls who really came out of their comfort zones and started playing with more confidence.

As a whole this tournament really brought to light the importance of staying focused and fixing the minor details to change the big picture.

Our girls did great and never lost a set! Go Hiki Nō!

After earning the opportunity to move up a division, our team wasn’t quite able to get over the hump nor convert in the few critical moments in each match to pull wins out in the morning pool & crossover matches. DS/Lib Halle VanDomelen provided a big vocal & emotional lift upon her return from a morning hs softball function. A true example of being a “rising tide that lifts all the boats”!

Wow! What a weekend for this team. Proud of the goals these young ladies are setting and reaching on and off the court. As a coach, I have to say being approached by the official for info needed related to giving a great shout out that was to be tweeted was priceless!! Second place will bring us a move up in the rankings as well. Congrats! Keep diggin

“Consistency & Commitment” has been the message & mindset needed to compete at our highest potential & the team took a step forward in that direction. Thanks to a very strong serve receive game, we were able to give ourselves many more options & opportunities on first attack balls. After a tough loss in tie-breaker, the team rebounded with back-to-back wins to keep us in the silver division with one more crack in April to move up into the top 12 which the coaching staff strongly feels the team is capable of. Off to Denver for the always awesome Crossorads tourney then returning to the NW & the Spokane PNQ. Let’s Go HIKI-TRAILS!

This team has battled all season having only been at full strength at the first tournament of the year. This tournament was no different being down two players and losing another during pool play. While the W/L may not reflect it, there were a lot of good things that happened throughout the day. Losing to the eventual champion 20-18 in the third set and losing another match 26-24 and 28-26, the team battled throughout the day. The players showed their ability to adapt to playing different positions and had a great attitude throughout!
