Great Weekend For Zero Gravity Teams

image_name2
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!

5th in the OVR!
view full size
It was a very successful day for both of our 16A teams at the OVR Regional Championships.  16 Black started slowly with a tough loss to Eastside Orange (30-28, 17-25, 16-18).  They quickly turned things around with a win over Kaepa Borderline (25-23, 25-9), which set up a battle to make the Gold with #2 ranked AVC Marflak who had won 7 tournaments this year.  Playing their best volleyball of the year when it mattered most Zero Gravity 16 Black defeated AVC Marflak by the scores of 27-25, 16-25, 15-11 to win the net and advance to the Gold Play-offs.  Our ladies played hard, but ended the season 5th in the OVR after a 25-16, 20-25, 9-15 loss to Advancement Academy.  Team members included Grace Boswell, Kaylee DiBiase, Sierra Land, Kate Shupp, Viktoria Farian, Maria Kolinoff, Brooke Mazzocca, Kelly Scheetz, and McKinley Smith.  Congratulations on a great season ladies!!
 
Not to be outdone Zero Gravity 16 Red went undefeated on Sunday on their way to earning their Gold Medals in the Aluminum Division.  The day included wins over London Elite (25-16, 25-18), Grandlake (26-24, 25-22), Advance (25-16, 25-20), Team Atlantis (25-22, 25-19), and Elite Sports (25-22, 25-15) in the Finals.  It was a great way to end the season.  Team members included Kaitlyn Close, Katie Demuesy, Liz DiMattio, Sarah Kline, Leah Luhring, Lindsay Thompson, Calissa Amato, and Abbie Swaino.  Congratulations on a great day ladies!!

Zero Gravity 18 Black Brings Home Gold at the OVR Regional Championships!!

Regional Champs!!
view full size

It took a season full of ups and downs, but our 18's finally played up to their ability at the OVR Regional Championships.  Our ladies started slowly with a close win against The Flatlands (25-23, 23-25, 15-13) and a close loss against Southwest PA (24-26, 25-19, 14-16), which put ZG in a bad spot with only a match against undefeated Southeast Xtreme remaining.  A win would mean 1st on their net, a defeat could maybe mean finishing 4th.  The loss in their second match must have woken the kids up because they started playing well, defeating Southeast Xtreme (25-23, 25-12) to win the net.

The winning ways continued with victories over XCITE (25-22, 25-18) in the quarter-finals, MOJO (25-12, 25-20) in the semi-finals, and Toledo Storm (25-12, 25-13) in the finals.  Team members included Maddi Underwood, Becca Evans, Sara VanDeusen, Lindsey Chafe, Taylor Hillyer, Maria Sansonetti, Leah Luhring, Sierra Land, and Maria Kolinoff.  Congratulations on a great day of volleyball ladies!!

Zero Gravity 16 Black had a great day at Maverick on Sunday.  Pool play, which included wins over Ignite, AVC, and Eastside, went smoothly with a 6-0 record.  This earned our young ladies the top seed heading into the Gold Playoffs.  In the quarterfinals and semifinals it was more of the same with straight wins over Toledo Dynamic and Westland to advance to the Gold Finals.  Playing in their 4th straight match our ladies fought hard, but fell just short of a Gold Championshiplosing to #2 seed Vertical Elite by the scores of 24-26, 25-9, 10-15.  Team members included Kelly Scheetz, Maria Kolinoff, Kaylee DiBiase, Kate Shupp, Victoria Farian, Brooke Mazzocca, McKinley Smith, Sierra Land, Hayley Macko, and Sidney Ailiff.  Congratulations Ladies and Good Luck in Philly this weekend!!

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.

It was a very good day on Saturday for our 14's and 15's.  Zero Gravity 14 Red finished first on their net and defeated PCVC Dig It (25-16, 25-19) in the semi-finals and PCVC Comets in the finals (25-19, 25-17).  Congratulations Ladies!!

Zero Gravity 15 Black was short handed with only 7 players, but after a tough first match loss to #2 seed Glass City our ladies stepped up their play and easily beat Spirit and Thunder in 4 straight games.  This set up a Gold Play-off battle with top seed Blackswamp, who had beaten their pool play opponents by an average score of 25-9.  Our ladies played their best volleyball of the year, but fell 23-25, 18-25.  Great job ladies!
