Preds Own the Podium on Last Day of Olympics
This past Saturday, the KW Predators won three medals, a Gold, Silver and Bronze at various competitions in Southwestern Ontario.
The 14U Girls Black team lead the charge by winning a gold medal in a Trillium level tournament in Stratford. The girls recovered from a rough weekend the week before to play their best volleyball of the season going undefeated on the day. The team easily won their pool, defeating both the Stratford Stingers and the Chatham Ballhawks by 2-0 scores. In the quarter-finals the Preds served very well in knocking off the 13U Scorpions. In the semis and finals the girls lost the first game in both matches only to fight back to win the final two games against the Stratford Stingers and the Woodstock Warriors respectively.
The silver medal was captured by the Preds 14U Purple team in Windsor. The Championship level event was an extremely competitive event featuring some of the top teams in the province. The girls finished first in their pool defeating Waterdown and Oakville Thunder. This put the girls in the quarter-finals where they easily defeated the Halton Hurricanes Blue. The team had yet to advance past the semi-finals in any tournament this year, so the game against South County White would serve as an improvement measuring stick. The girls passed this test by defeating their opponent 2 games to 0 to set up a finals showdown with Forest City. The team camp up short in the finals, losing 2-0, thereby capturing the silver medal.
The 16U Purple Girls played in a Championship event in Hamilton on the weekend. In pool play the team defeated FCVC 15U Green in two. In the second match of the day they came out slowly against a tough Guelph Grizzlies team, dropping the first set. The
girls responded in the second with a convincing win and captured the match in three.
Finishing first in their pool put them up against a scrappy South County Black in the crossover. The girls delivered a team victory in two sets. The semifinals saw the team face the top-seeded FCVC 16U Green. Some early service reception errors left the team in anhole. Despite battling back they dropped the match in two (20-25, 18-25). The team was able to regroup and win the bronze match against Niagara Rapids in two.
Congratulations to the three teams on the Gold, Silver and Bronze medals.
