SHOCK had a good weekend at the Go Community Sports Centre in Edmonton. finishing with a 5-2 record in their AVA Premier 3 effort. They secured 5th place overall in Div 2 after paying back the Nooks 18U for an earlier round-robin loss. The girls picked up their game, determination and effort to win in a 25-22 / 23-25 / 16-14 nail-biter. It was another weekend for the experience shelf.
Coach Steve Burnside said it best: "I'm happy for the girls and their hard work is really starting to pay off. With the first of three goals met, it is now time to aim for top 8 in Provincials and a Division 1 ranking for Nationals. Practices are going to get even tougher and much more intense as we move to the next step."
Easter weekend will find the team competing at the Calgary Cup where they hope to continue this past weekend's success.
