15U girls move thirty placings up the rankings
2017-05-04
by Randy Pascal

In the end, only a couple of critical points separated the Northern Chill 15U Girls from reaching the final four of Division 2 Tier 2 playoffs at the OVA (Ontario Volleyball Association) Championships last weekend. Improving their overall provincial ranking by more than thirty placings over last year, and working their way up to 46th in Ontario (among a pool of 115 teams) did, however, allow the team to consider the season a notable success.

The Chill were a little slow off the mark on Friday afternoon, dropping their first two matches to the Ottawa Maverick Ambush (21-25, 14-25) and the Niagara Rapids Blue (26-24, 16-25, 9-15). A late three set victory over the Halton Hurricanes – Black (19-25, 25-23, 15-6) allowed the locals to leave day one on a positive note.

That did not seem to help early in day two, as the Chill are again handed a pair of losses courtesy of the Mountain Volleyball Club from Hamilton (19-25, 18-25) and the Phoenix Blaze from Toronto (22-25, 22-25). The northern crew dusted themselves off for a second straight day to finish with a win, sweeping past the Durham Attack – Black 26-24, 25-23.

Needing to win to stay in on Sunday, the Chill survived the “round of sixteen”, eliminating the Ottawa Fusion 25-21, 25-23, but found the tables turned a short while later. The Etobicoke Titans would send the Sudbury crew packing in a three set hard fought affair, outscoring the Chill 17-25, 25-17, 15-13.

“The team made great strides, on and off the court this season,” noted head coach James Schweyer. “We witnessed improvements in the individual skill sets of all of the athletes, as well as a maturing of this team as a unit.” The 15U Chill will be competing at nationals in Kitchener Waterloo on the weekend of May 12th to the 14th.

Coach Schweyer has assembled a roster of Ayla Jones, Erika Brown, Katie Staffen, Emma Squires, Lauren Jeanneault, Hailey Selk, Emma Bissonnette, Brielle Chicoine, Amber Jacques, Amelina Iturregui, Katia Legros and Symantha Welsh for nationals. Nathan Squires and Sheldon Root will serve as assistant coaches with the team.
