1st Tournament win for 15 Red

15 Red starts off 2017 with a bang by winning their 1st tournament of the season at the NJ Sports House.

15 Red led by Coach Annie, Coach Taylor and Coach Faith had just the scrimmage earlier in the month to get this team ready for tournament play. And this team was ready.

In pool B with 4 teams, 15 Red flew by BVC 15 -1 25 - 6 & 25 - 12 to get off to a great start. Next up was Arsenal Elite 15U. 15 Red took away their guns and won in 2 sets 25 -18 & 25 - 10.  In the final match of pool play, 15 Red was extended to extra points in set 1 but swept Dragon Warriors 27 - 25 & 25 - 20 to finish 1st in Pool B.

In the Gold Bracket Semifinal match against Digs 15 Blue 15 Red maintained their perfect record on the day by sweeping 25 - 17 & 25-22.

In the Gold Bracket Final Cali 15 Red was waiting as they went 3 - 0 in Pool A. The first set went to 15 Red 25-16 but the second set went to Cali 15 Red 25 - 21. To win the Gold, 15 Red had to go to a 15 point tiebreaker. 15 Red started strong but were down as the teams changed sides at 8 by one point. But 15 Red pressed forward and completed the day by winning the tournament 15 -10 and winning a Gold Medal for their effort.

Coach Annie after the pictures stated that "the girls played great"and "is very proud of the team."
