HS Midseason tournament results

KIUA Sports's picture

The HS teams participated in the WJAA midseason tournaments this past weekend. The boys traveled down to Fukuoka and played 6 matches, losing only once in a close 3-set match to Marist in the semifinal. The boys then beat Nagoya in two sets, coming back in dramatic fashion in the second set to win third place. Senri-Osaka downed Marist in 3 straight sets to win the final. Coach King and the boys were happy with the results and see that they can continue to improve throughout the coming weeks before hosting the season-ending tournament October 9-10. (continued...)

The girls had a tough time, narrowly losing several matches, at their tournament at Marist in Kobe. They knocked off EJ King (Sasebo naval base HS) in 3 sets [25-22, 17-25, 15-8], and CA [25-21, 27-25], but lost to SOIS and MC Perry in 2 hard-fought matches. In their last match against Nagoya, the Flames lost in a full-set match [24-26, 25-23, 9-15]. Since this is only the midseason, Coach Blocksom and the girls have sights set on improving and making a stronger showing in October.
