18U were in Indianapolis this past weekend, overcoming a rough start to win the Diamond bracket in 18 Open.
Day 1 saw the ladies go 0-3, though they remained competitive in all of their matches. This proved to them that when they remain consistent and play for each other, they can compete with very good teams. After meeting with each other and having a night to let it all sink in, they came back the second day and played very inspired volleyball, winning their pool and earning a spot in the Diamond bracket. They were able to come out the last day and dominate both matches for a 17th place finish overall.
It was a trip to remember for more than just volleyball, as we hit a snowstorm coming out of Indianapolis that led to cancelled flights and a “free” night in Phoenix. Rest assured ladies, this is an experience you may not forget for a while. 😉
Up next are 16 and 17U in Spokane March 29-31. Best of luck to you all and, as always, Hiki No!!
