17U Ignite @ Provincial Cup
The 17U Ignite officially kicked off their 2014/2015 OVA season at the Provincial Cup held at Supreme Courts in London this past Saturday. It was a day of victories and defeats that in the end saw Ignite grow stronger as a team and showed that they have what it takes to become a force to be reckoned with.
After a slow start, Ignite came to life in their second match with libero Alex Mulder making it an easy job for setter Erin Carter to dish butter to outside hitters Kate Smith, Sophie Roelen, Sarah Broos and Nicole Norena. Kate and Sophie showed their versatility and power with successful back row and front row attacks. Sarah made it clear that you’re not safe blocking only cross-court and Nicole’s power caught the other teams off-guard.
As the day continued, middles Sarah Madge and Diana Crowley showed their ability to control the net with strong blocking and attacks while newcomers middle Ashley Ford, outside hitters Marlena Cole and Madison Goldie showed everyone that they are here to make Ignite a stronger team.
To quote another LVC Coach, “I love leaving a tournament more pumped than when I got there!”.
Great work ladies!
