Preds 13U Synergy earns SILVER in first 14U tournament of the season
The Predators 13U Synergy girls began their 2016/17 season with a major statement, winning silver in a 14U Provincial cup tournament in Cambridge on November 26.
Ranked third going into the contest, Synergy finished first in their pool by beating both the Hamilton Smash Jaguars and the Waterloo Tigers in straight sets.
Facing the Burlington Defensa 14U girls in their first playoff match, Synergy battled back after losing the first set 26-24 to win the next two sets and head to the semi-final. There they surprised Cambridge Scorpion 14U Green with a convincing two-set sweep, securing their place in the final against Halton Hurricanes. Despite a great showing, Synergy lost to Halton, who captured the gold medal. It was a tremendous achievement for the 13U Synergy girls who now advance to the 14U Championship Division.
Winning feels great. Helping others feels even better.
Synergy's accomplishments didnít end on the court during their first tournament weekend. The team (along with some remarkable parents and volunteers) also held a bake sale during the event, raising over $440. And on Sunday, accompanied by Coach Lisa Watson and Mary Slavcev, the girls used the money to buy gifts to create 21 stockings for kids in the Kitchener-Waterloo community. Their amazing efforts will support the Stuffin Stockings charity (www.stuffinstockings.ca), a local organization that helps deliver some Christmas love to those who need a helping hand.
An outstanding weekend all around! Go Preds!!!
