Congratulations to our 17U girls team who went 9-0 (18-1) to take the Division 2, Tier 1 National championship title in Edmonton, Alberta earlier this month. The girls went undefeated the entire weekend.
The team had a great season and despite numerous injuries throughout the season, the girls managed to come together for their final tournament prove the potential everyone knew was there.
The 17U Girls would like to thank the following sponsors for their financial support throughout the season:
Our 17U girls are here at the Brock/Taunton Road Walmart in Whitby raising funds for their upcoming trips to Chicago and Edmonton. We also have forms and are accepting registrations for our upcoming girls’ houseleague program. Come and show your support or learn more about our great houseleague program geared to girls ages 11-13 years. We’ll be here today and tomorrow until 5 p.m. and hope you’ll come by and support the girls!
They started off their tournament day taking the province’s second seed team, LVC of London, to three sets and coming out on top. What a way to start in this 17U Premier Division that brings together the top 9 seeds in the province. While that win would be the highlight of the day, DRVC continued to push competitors forcing all but one game to three sets; proving they belonged in this elite group of teams. As the lights dimmed at Brock University in St. Catherine’s, DRVC emerged with a 7th place finish, not enough to put them into February’s 2-day Grand Prix event open to the top 8 teams in the province. While some may have left slightly disappointed, it also served as a catalyst for this group of determined athletes to keep pushing, keep training, and keep working harder to get closer to that goal of once again playing amongst Ontario’s elite.
