TroVal Jays Bring Home Bronze In First Tournament Of The Season

TroVal Seniors Bronze Didsbury

TroVal Jays Sr. Girls played their first tournament of the season. The girls really came together as a team. There was some excellent leadership from the team veterans and some serious determination from the rookies. On Saturday, the Jays had two games, back to back, that had to go into a third set, to determine the winner. They played so many close matches, they came out victorious in all but two. The team played three games right after each other, the third being the bronze medal match. During the bronze medal match - despite their exhaustion, they came out swinging the first set and took the win easily. The second set did not go the same way. It was a back-and-forth match with lots of excellent digs to keep the ball in play. The team called one final time-out, with the score being 17-22 for our opposition (Ardrossan Bisons). The girls showed serious mental toughness and pushed ahead, making some excellent serves, hits, and all-around smart plays. They pulled ahead and took the win 25-23. A very close and exhausting second set.
