The Kaizen 12’s volleyball team capped off four days of tournament play in the 2014 SCVA Summer Soiree with a victory in the Bronze division of the event. They finished with an overall record of 9 wins and 2 losses, with their only losses coming on the first day of the tournament in pool play.

The girls had a tough draw in pool play, being matched with 2 other teams who eventually finished in the top 10 of the tournament. Both losses to those teams came in close, hard-fought three set matches.

Despite the first day setback, the girls battled back to go undefeated for the rest of the tournament, dropping only one more set along the way. They finished in 13th place out of 49 teams in the 12U division. Their 9-2 record was also the fourth best record in the tournament, and they were the only 12U team from Hawaii to end the tournament with a victory.

After the tournament, the team enjoyed a dinner at Joe’s Crab Shack and celebrated with team awards and other fun gifts.

Thank you to all the players – Amanda, Ashley, Caitlyn, Kaira, Kate, Kelli, Kerri, and Leeza, to Coach Royce, and to all the family and friends who supported our team on their journey. The girls are excited to return again next year.

More photos and highlights to come.

Teammates, coaches, and friends enjoyed dinner and games at Dave and Busters on Wednesday, June 25, 2014 to celebrate a going away party for Tinei. After four years in Hawaii, she and her family are moving to Los Angeles in a few days. The girls wanted to share one last moment together before she left to thank her for friendship and to bid her aloha as she moves on to the mainland.

During her two seasons with Kaizen, Tinei was an integral part of the 14’s and 16’s teams. Her strong hitting, tough jump serving, and stellar defense and passing helped raised her teams level of play. A special highlight was her performance at last summer’s Ho’oikaika tournament in Waimea, Kauai, where she helped her team win the championship. She was a varsity player at Radford as a freshman, and she hopes to continue her playing career at Chatsworth High School in California.

On behalf of your coaches and teammates, we would like to thank you for playing with us the past two years, and we wish you the best of luck in the future!
