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.
