Zero Gravity 18's Dominate at OhioNets

image_name2
Gold Champions!!

Both of our 18's teams were at OhioNets on Sunday and both had phenomenal days.  Zero Gravity 18 Black entered the tournament as the #1 ranked team in the OVR and showed why as they rolled thru their pool with wins over Quicksilver 18's (25-16, 25-19), Northshore 17's (25-11, 25-16), and EPIC 18's (25-17, 25-20).  The 3-0 mark earned our young ladies the top seed going into the Gold Playoffs...where they defeated Northshore 18's (25-4, 25-17) and Zero Gravity 18 Red (25-10, 25-13) to meet up with Ignite 18-1 in the Gold Finals.  It was a battle, but 18 Black finished strong (25-22, 11-25, 15-5) to bring home the Tournament Championship.  Team members included Erin Weisgarber, Emily Smith, Bruklyn Williams, Brittany Miner, Rachel Cornell, Torrie Romigh, Hannah Hayes, and Sarah Windom.  Congratulations Ladies!!

Our 18 Red team played great as well as they had wins over AVC 18's and Spirit 18's during pool play to make the Gold Play-offs, and then beat a solid Kidron 18's team who had won their first 2 tournaments this year in the Gold Quarter-finals.  Great job ladies!

Zero Gravity 18 Black and 18 Red Have Great Weekends at Presidents Cup

image_name2
#1 ranked team in the OVR!

With some help from four of our 16's, both of our 18's teams enjoyed their weekends in Columbus.  18 Black started the weekend unranked, but finished the weekend ranked #1 in the OVR.  On Saturday they won their first pool with wins over Western PA 18's (25-14, 25-22) and #7 seed Club Extreme 18's (23-25, 25-9, 15-11), as well as their second pool with wins over Roundtown 18's (25-17, 25-18) and #6 seed Preble County 18's (22-25, 25-15, 15-10).  This sent our young ladies to the Gold Bracket on Sunday and match-ups with #2 seed Buckeye Fire 18's (25-21, 19-25, 13-15), which was their only loss on the weekend, and huge wins over #3 seed Blackswamp 18's (25-16, 30-28) and #1 seed Advancement Academy 18's (25-19, 25-23).  Team members included Erin Weisgarber, Emily Smith, Bruklyn Williams, Brittany Miner, Rachel Cornell, Torrie Romigh, Hannah Hayes, Sarah Windom, Brooke Mazzocca, Lizzie Garren, and Jordan Kohut.  Congratulations Ladies!

 

18 Red had a good weekend as well finishing in the top 10.  Our young ladies had wins over Putnam 18's, Buffalo Academy 18's, Club Chill 18's, Dayton Jrs. 18's, and #5 seed Ohio Xtreme 18's.  Their only blemishes for the weekend were tough losses to #1 seed Advancement Academy, #4 seed Southwest 18's, and Huron County 18's in the Silver Finals.  Great job ladies!!

18's Bring Home Gold

Even this early in the year a few of or teams had very good weekends.  Zero Gravity 16 Black had a strong first day at Elite finishing 3rd in the Gold Play-offs.  They got stronger as the day went on, but ran into a solid Elite team in the semi's that ended their day.  Our 14 Pink team one uped them though with a 2nd place finish in the Gold at Kids America to remain the #1 ranked 14 American team in the OVR.  But, the big winner this weekend was our 18 Red team who brought home the clubs first Gold Championship of the year at Kids America on Sunday.  The win moved them up to #2 in the OVR.  Team members included Michelle Daugherty, Amanda McCann, Anna Morrow, Hannah Harr, Sarah Harr, Hayley Macko, Kelcey Haas, Kennady Jaber, and Torrie Romigh.  Congratulations to all of our teams!

New Shutterfly Picture Site

Tracy Evans (Becca's mom) has set up a Shutterfly picture site for all of us to use and needs everyone to send her their email addresses so she can get everyone registered.  You can either request to be added or she can add you to the site.  Then, you can post pictures, videos and comments on your team's page.  A picture site will be nice for everyone to share what they have with their team and the entire club.  Please email Tracy if you have any questions.
