PrezDay Classic Action

Each year in February during Presidents' Day weekend there are tournaments held all over the United States and Phoenix traveled to the Lehigh Valley area to take part in the PrezDay Classic.

15 Black has a rough start 1-2 in Pool 1 which featured the #1 team in the 15's who incidentally won the tournament. The next day was the crossover to play for better seeds and the ladies won the match in 2 sets but lost the Silver Bracket Quarterfinal in 2 sets to finish 25th.

15 Red started slow as well losing their first match in Pool 8 to eventual Pool winner MVSA Wild in 2 sets. The ladies rebounded in their next two matches to win and advance to the Gold Bracket Crossover matches. In the Crossover match, 15 Red was extended to 3 sets yet again and advanced to a higher seed in the Gold Bracket. 15 Red lost in the Gold Quarterfinal to Potomac Elite 15 Black in 3 sets to finish in 9th place.

18 Red continued the trend as they were defeated in their 1st match by pool play winner Potomac Elite 18 Blue. The rebound was swift as they defeated X Factor in 2 sets and EC Power 18 Topaz in 3 sets to advance to the Gold Bracket Crossover. 18 red then faced EC Power 18 Sapphire and were defeated in 3 sets and the opportunity to improve their seed was lost. In the Gold Bracket Quarterfinal another EC Power 18 team awaited our ladies, Regal. Regal defeated 18 Red in 2 sets and the 18 Red squad ended the day in 5th place.
