Team Alberta Competition Summary

Volleyball Alberta would like to congratulate Team Alberta on their recent accomplishments at the National Team Challenge Cup (NTCC) and High Performance Championships.  All the teams trained hard to prepare for these competitions.

The 16U Boys competed at the NTCC’s in Gatineau alongside the best teams from across Canada. They finished with a 3-1 record in pool play, then made it to the semi-finals against Ontario Black, and dropped the match three sets to one.  In the bronze medal game, Alberta were able to come out on top after a five set battle against BC Blue.

The 16U Girls’ NTCC Championship was held in Richmond, BC. Team Alberta had two teams competing in this event. Alberta Blue had two wins and two losses during pool play, while Alberta Black had three wins and one loss.  Alberta Blue lost a heart breaking five set playoff match against BC Blue, while Alberta Black lost in straight sets to BC Red. Both Alberta squads would eventually face each other, with Alberta Black beating Alberta Blue for fifth place in the tournament.

The 17U Boys competed in the International Division at the High Performance Championships, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. They were often playing against older teams, but held their own throughout the tournament, finishing with a 2-6 record.  The team’s two victories came over USA Youth Blue and USA Select teams.

Our 17U Girls were in the International Youth Division at the HP Championships. The team started the tournament strong with a straight sets victory over Club de Regatas from Lima, Peru, but then dropped their next four in hard fought matches. The girls closed out the tournament with a stronger finish, winning two of their next three matches, with victories over Team Saskatchewan and the Badger Region from Wisconsin.

The 18U Men competed in the International Division, and finished tenth out of twenty four teams sporting a 4-4 record.  The team came out of the gates slowly with losses against Team Saskatchewan and BC, but rallied back winning four of their next six matches. Their victories came against USA Selects Blue, USA Youth Blue, Manitoba, and Team Ontario 17’s.

The 18U girls played in the Women’s International Division, and had a grueling scheduled, playing three matches going five full sets.  Despite their challenges, the team managed to pull out wins against USA Junior White, Newfoundland and USA Youth Blue. They finished with a 3-5 record and a great overall competitive experience!

Congratulations to all the athletes and coaches!
