You can thank Shannon!!    She got permission to peel it off the wall in the lobby of the gym as we were walking out!!    (Do you want to see it more clearly?  Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page!) 

Final Results From HiNeighbor
All playoff brackets in all age groups are here!

We had a great first day!!

Okay... I thought the tournament was great!!!!!! We did not have the opportunity to play the best teams all throughout, but we played hard and we did our job. We all work together so well and plays just fall into place. Everyone worked hard and once again it paid off. Our passes improved which just jumpstarted all of our offense. And I was thinking about how are setters help us so much. What would we do without them?? How terrible would it be if I had TO SET!!!!!!! You guys are so amazing. I really enjoyed this tournament and I cant believe our season is almost over... it went by really fast. Thank you guys for everything you contribute towards our team... especially the coaches!!!!!! I love being on this team and I don't want it to be over. I think we all work so well together and I definitely showed in Asheville!!!!!                -Aidan 

Thanks to all the parents and kids, we were ready with our gift bags!
And our gifts were the bomb........kinda like TayBay's serves!!

Jr Hi Neighbor was a very fun tournament for me and the team. I think that we all did a great job and worked extreamly well as a team. We had our first jump serve game and the girls did great! I think i heard houser say we only missed 3 serves that whole game! Amazing!! Im very thankful for taylor and i dont know what i would do without her to sleep with at night after i watch scary movies! :] hahha thanks tay! Lastly i want to say that i love all the girls on this team and am very happy i get to be on a team with them. Only 2 more tournaments together :[ Keep up the great work!

We ate out at Ryan's on Saturday night and sung happy birthday to Bekah!!

On Saturday morning, we had some tight games against A-5 from Atlanta,
 but we finished our first pool 3-0.

Between pools on Saturday, we watched baseball, got bored; then, watched softball, got bored; then we watched men's lacrosse......we weren't bored any longer!

After the girls has the serious pictures taken,
the parents asked them to take a silly one......
Hey......there's only 10 players.........where's Jessi?

The tournament format was 4 team pools and each match was the best 2 out of 3 games to produce a match winner. Games 1 and 2 started at 5 and went to 25. If a third game was necessary, it was played from 0-15. Final pool rankings were determined by match results, not games or total points. All ties were played off in a single game 0-15 format.  In case of a three way tie, the higher seeded team reffed the match between the lower seeds and then played the winner. There were two pools before the elimination round began late Sunday morning. The finals were single elimination.

Play stated at 8am both mornings.   *yawn*
