Five Starz 12 Red started off the day with a great win over Gold Cal Jrs! Continuing with awesome serving and team work, the girls brought some fire to the court, taking down Land Park-2 in a close 3 set match! Playing Gold Cal Black in the last match of pool play, the team battled hard, but ended up falling to Gold Cal, putting them 2nd in the pool! In the Gold bracket of playoffs, the girls came out strong against yet another Gold Cal Team, but came up a little short. Throughout the day the team showed much improved serving and defense, finishing the tournament 9th overall. They are working hard at practice, hoping to head back to the Gold bracket next time. Great work 12 Red!!

Five Starz 17’s Win Colorado Crossroads
It was definitely a team effort as every player contributed to the tournament win in Denver, CO. The road to the championship wasn’t always smooth, as Five Starz fought through a second day challenge from Wave 17’s fending off eight match points before securing the win. Then again in the semi-finals, competition was fierce as the 17’s split the first two sets with Kansas City. In the deciding set, Five Starz went down 0-6 before the team found their fighting spirit and blocked its way back into the game, eventually winning 15-12. The championship match, while not quite as exciting, was also competitive as FSVC defeated Vision 17’s in two sets.
The team continues to demonstrate the ability to adapt to different line-ups and offensive systems. Kudos to the players for the strong bond they have formed and for fighting through tough matches to secure a bid to the Junior Nationals in Minneapolis. The team continues to improve their net play as hitting and blocking are a definite strength. Congratulations 17’s!
