2 Gold Medals Highlight 4th Week Of OVA Competition

November 25 The Preds continued their medal winning ways on this, the fourth week of competition.

In Stratford 13u Preds Purple competed in the Provincial Cup, their first competition of the season, under new coach Kelvin Hui. It was their first competition in their own age group and the boys won their pool in straight sets putting them in the quarter finals. In the quarters the team came up against our neighbors across the 401, the scorpions, and came up with a 2-0 victory. The semi-finals proved to be difficult. The Preds were face to face with pool mates Pakmen. After dropping the first set in a tight battle the boy rallied and won the set (25-27, 26,24, 15-12). The finals proved to be another challenge for the boys. Facing off against Thunder, the fight to bring home the Gold was nail biter once more going to three sets. The Predators ended with the gold though winning the tie break 17-15.

In Kitchener the 15u Predators Ignite was fighting their own battles in the 16u Provincial Cup Trillium B. The team was largely undefeated throughout the day losing only a single set and entering the playoffs first in their pool. The team took on Tigers White in the quarter finals winning in straight sets and rolling into the semifinals. Predators continued their momentum through the semis defeating 15u SVC Stingers 25-23 and 25,17. The girls came into the finals confidently and the match was quickly decided by a hungry Ignite team who won the gold medal in straight sets 25-9 and 25-18.

On the boys side of Preds Nation, the15u boys Purple competed last Saturday as well. The boys had a long day 12.5 hour day in the gym but never let that slow them down. With added fuel from the University of Waterloo men's volleyball player who came to cheer them on the boys rolled through pool play and found themselves waiting 3 hours for playoffs to begin! The long wait didn't kill the Predator's fight and they ended up in the finals. The boys battled Forest City Green in the gold medal match losing in 3 and taking home a silver medal, their only two sets lost all day. Congrats to all of our teams who represented #predsnation this weekend and good luck to the teams competing this next weekend.

Go Preds!!!
