It was a good day for 16 black in AL1. They accumulated the full 100 points from winning first area league tournament. They accomplished this even with 2 missing players due to injuries. The team managed to pull together to stay undefeated throughout the tournament. After a relatively slow start beating Diamonds 15-1 2:1, the team cruised rest of the way without dropping a game, including defeating area league strong contender Shoreline in straight sets. Way to go, ladies!

2009 President’s Day Tourney Results

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Hello, Eclipsoids,

Hope you’ve all recovered from the long weekend of intense competition. While it is certainly draining at times, it is a great experience for all age groups to test their limits. We have received lots of positive feedbacks from both parents and coaches. Overall, each team overcame adversity ranging from injuries, absence, fatigue and scheduling difficulties. But each team worked hard together through them as a team. It is important and necessary for us to learn and improve through both winning and losing. We are very happy with the overall turnout and look forward to our league opener. Please enjoy the results posted below.

Hello world!
