The team had a meeting on Friday night.  We decided we were going to have a great tournament!!!

The gym at Asheville Middle School on Saturday morning was cold!!

We ate lunch at an Italian restaurant.  We THOUGHT we had the time perfectly planned. How were we to know that the next pool would start 45 minutes early?

Erika, it's just a camera.
I know you recognize it!
Brutal elbow tag! Kristen is THE #1 scorekeeper Hey, Bethann, what's that one your nose?

Saturday April 2nd
We lost to Club Wake 22-25, 16-25
We beat NETVC 15 Blue:  25-23, 28-30, 18-16
We beat Cobra 15 Copper:  25-21, 25-20.
We beat Biltmore 15's White:  23-25, 25-21, 15-11 
Thank you Deanna Cutting and Geoff Boyer for keeping us from forfeiting!!
We lost Hickory Hammers:  22-25, 15-25

Sunday April 3rd
We beat WNC:  25-21, 25-17

We beat Cary YMCA Spikeforce:  23-25, 25-15, 15-6
We lost to Biltmore 15's Black (the #1 seed in the tournament) 25-27, 12-25.

So after being seeded TWENTY - SECOND in the 32-team field,
we made the final 4 in the entire tournament. 
That's something the 15's team of 2 years ago wasn't able to accomplish!!! 

Another Interesting Fact:
The 4 teams that made the semifinals of 15's Gold were seeded #1, #2, #3 and #22!!

Final record in Asheville:  11-8
Overall record for the season: 61-38

Kristen & Bethann chill before our 2nd playoff game. Hey, Millie, you don't have to put the entire bag of chips in your mouth at one time! The Churches & Delaneys lead Austin & me home over the mountains!  Wow. 
SHEW!!  We almost forfeited, then we WON.......THREE STRAIGHT!!  haha.     What a memory!! We had a talk before playoffs began.  "We're not just going to show up.  We're going to WIN!!"  And we did.
Our parents, brothers and sisters are our biggest fans!
You're awesome!!
Another great tournament!
We started off #22 and ticked off.  We finished #3 and proud!!
Let's do this again really soon!!

Asheville was lots of fun!!!
Eva was setting great, and everyone who hit was REALLY hitting the ball,
i thought our serves were really good, and many of
us were serving spots really well.
I thought it was awesome the way we went into the tournament 22 and came out 4!
We are gonna be awesome by the VA beach tournament.
So yeah.... even though it was EXTREMELY cold for april we were on fire this tournament.

Coach Houser:

This was a special tournament for us.............but we're starting to get used the the result: GREAT!!!
It seems that our team plays better every week.
Gosh, I just got home from practice on Sunday 4/10 and WHOA, we played GREAT!!!
But at Asheville, we were always busting our butts to get balls up and to hit good sets.
The girls who weren't in the game were cheering their hearts out.
You guys picked me up when I messed up!  :(  Jeeeeze!
Thank you parents, players, Austin..............everyone!
The tournament was INCREDIBLE!!
