It has been an awesome year for the DRVC 14U volleyball team. Although the year is over, there are many amazing memories for this talented team of young ladies to cherish. This group of girls spent the last year travelling to two tournaments a month all over Ontario representing Durham Region.
The team consists of eight local girls from S.A. Cawker Public school along with three new friends from Whitby and Oshawa. Their two coaches are Mr.Koot (retired teacher from S.A. Cawker), and Deb Stevenson, a teacher from Port Perry High School.
During the regular season the girls earned both gold and silver medals along with several other top five finishes.
The girls also achieved great success in Kitchener/Waterloo in the Provincials in March receiving a bronze medal for their efforts. It was three days of hard fought matches and exciting volleyball. At the beginning of May, the team travelled to Ottawa to attend Nationals. Again it was an intense, nail biting, three day event and after nineteen hard fought games the girls emerged victorious capturing a Gold Medal in their division.
None of the above success could have been achieved without our amazing coaches, along with the girls undying dedication and tireless hours of practice.
