Our 17U Girls headed west this past weekend to compete in the OVA 17U Girls Challenge Cup at Sir Oliver Mowat Collegiate Institute in Scarborough. The girls battled hard against the toughest pool play opposition they had yet encountered so far this season. A 3rd place finish set them up for a crossover battle with Brockville’s new Titanium club. The girls kept their game as mistake-free as possible and came out on top, winning their first OVA match of the season, in straight sets!
In the playoff rounds, Air Force’s best efforts were not enough against the free-wheeling and high-spirited 16U Ottawa Maverick Wildcards, nor did they have any luck against Kingston’s Pegasus, although they did greatly improve their scores compared to their morning match against the same team.
These events are building blocks, and the whole team has definitely showed improvement early in the season. Congratulations girls on all the great battle you showed this weekend… the hard work you are doing in the gym is definitely beginning to pay off.
