We have been and continue to be a club that prides itself on trying to be just a little better than the year before. We continue to challenge our players and coaches to improve on our performance by doing well in our region with the end goal to be more competitive nationally! We strive to raise our level of play and continue to push our limits of performance at Junior National Qualifiers and at the GJNC. We’ve steadily improved on this each and every year. This year marks the first time our club has earned (3) bids to the Junior National Championships at a National Qualifying Event. We had a great overall showing at the Pacific Northwest Qualifier held in Spokane in March as a club. Our teams came home with two Championships in the 17 Open and 16 USA age divisions. We also came home with a 3rd place finish in the 14 Open age division in a super tough field where we earned our third bid of the tournament.
Our teams performed well in our region’s Bid Tournament held in April, where we earned our fourth bid in the 12 National age division by winning our region’s Bid Tournament. We narrowly missed out on securing two more bids with a second place finish in the U15 Bid Tournament and a 3rd place finish in the U18 Bid Tournament. We remain 1st in line should a reallocated bid become available in the U15 age division and 2nd in line should a reallocated bid become available in the U18 division.
We are very happy with the way our teams have competed thus far and look forward to all our teams continuing to improve. At the moment we are sending four qualified teams and five teams overall to Nationals to be held in Minneapolis in June. It has been a solid season for our club thus far and we are looking forward to continuing to push ourselves to be even better! Congrats to all our players, coaches and families for your hard work and support!
