Season End and Regional Recap***
14 Black and 16 Black played their final tournament of the season this weekend. Here are the coaches recaps…
“The 14 Black team finished their season as Flight 1 champions at regionals!!
Pool play was a great day with many battles! Two of their three matches
went to three games with games ending in 29-27 and 17-15. At the end of pool
play there was a 3-way tie for first. As they worked through the tie
breakers, 14 Black took first in pool play by 1/10th of a point!!!
Tournament day started off slow when they came back in game 2 when they were
down 14 points! They were successful with a 26-24 and 16-14 win against
Snake River to advance to the semi final game. Next they battled Sandpoint
and again they started slow in the first game to battle and win games 2 and
I want to thank my 11 girls and families. We had a great season and I am so
happy for the progression this team has made."
“This group of girls improved tremendously from the beginning of the season. Each and every girl learned a new skill and applied it at some point this weekend. My hope is that the girls will continue to work on their individual skills, become a competitive team player, and to have a passion for the game! I’ll be anxious to watch them this fall on their respective high school teams! A huge thank you goes to each girl, their families, and the Thunder community for a great season!” – Coach Amy
Thank you to all teams this season and good luck to the 13 Gold, 14 Gold, and 15 Gold still have a couple tournaments to go. Good luck!!
