SHOCK 14's strike again at the Vision Open as the girls played some consistent ball throughout the weekend, and were able to stay focused on their side of the net throughout the competition. After a couple of wins on Friday night vs Fury Green and Mavericks Blue, the girls rested up for another long day in the gym at Red River College. Saturday morning set up a meeting vs Vision Blue, where the girls took care of business, moving to a straight sets win by scores of 25-17 and 25-4. Brooklynn Cooper lead the way with 5 service aces, while Claire Signatovich added 4 kills on 9 swings to wrap up pool play. The girls won their pool, and faced off against a young KEVC team, and were able to move in the 1/4 final after a win. SHOCK then faced off against a scrappy Jr. Pilots team, and took the match 25-8, 25-22. Leia Jaworski collected 10 points with 6 aces and 4 kills, while Mabel Currie contributed with 4 kills of her own. Talia McMurchy and Victoria Duester each added 7 assists in the match. Next up, SHOCK took on Fury Blue in the semi-final, and after a competitive start from both sides, and lots of energy on the court, SHOCK pulled away to an easy win by scores of 25-14 and 25-16. Camryn Brown, Alexa Wieczorkiewiecz, Mabel Currie and Victoria Duester all added 2 kills each, while Mabel Currie and Talia McMurchy both added 4 aces to serve their team to victory. Emily Barnowich also added 3 aces in the win. In the final match up of the day, SHOCK faced off again vs Vision Blue, and as a team showed great poise at the net offensively, and a high level of execution with 21 kills and only 4 errors throughout the match. Talia McMurchy and Maya Braun went "Beast Mode" in the 1st set, combining for 7 kills with authority, while Alexa Kozlowski, Claire Signatovich and Mia Hildebrant combined for 10 more kills. Great serving again from Camryn Brown helped SHOCK put away the match in straight sets by scores of 25-16, and 25-14. A solid TEAM effort all around, and now the girls go back to work again in the gym this week, training towards competing at Volleyjam in 2 weeks. The athletes found success by transferring skills learned in practice over to match play, and were able to see the benefits of commitment to training during the week with another tournament win! Keep up the hard work, and we look forward to seeing you back on the court at the end of the month.
