2010 President’s Day Results

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Hello, Eclipsoids,

We just want to give some updates on recent competition. Congrats on a great President’s Day tournament finish. It is a tournament that Eclipse has always enjoyed playing in and achieved much success in the past. It was a long three days, full of sweat, pain, joy, ups and downs.

We know that for many teams, if a few points went a different way by us or other matches, we could have easily ended up even higher in seeding. But we want to emphasize that the more important point is that each team and player has improved through these challenging competitions. We also value and camaraderie and sportsmanship we built.

2010 NonLeague#4 results

Sunday, January 31st, 2010

Hello, all Eclipsoids,
Now that we have settled into a groove early in the season, we wanted to give an update on recent success our teams have achieved in NonLeague #4. Overall, it was a great experience for all 7 teams. Competition level varied in tournaments, but all teams got a chance to learn about playing with teammates and working through ups and downs as a team. The tournament prepared us well to enter into league play. Our multi-day tournaments during the season will also give us new challenges to elevate our performance to the next level.
Overall, we are very happy with the progress with all of the teams placing in top 4 and 3 teams winning their brackets. We look forward to another exciting season to add to the great tradition at Eclipse. We also want to thank all the coaches for their efforts and parents for their support, especially the ones organizing car-pools and foods for all the teams.
Go Eclipse!
