The 16U OVA Challenge Cup is in the books! Half of Lakeside’s teams were in action over the weekend and produced some excellent results. Here is a quick rundown of each team’s results from Saturday and Sunday action:
16U Askari: Finished the weekend in 3rd spot in Trillium White. A tough three-set loss to the eventual tournament winners sees the team hoping for a Championship spot in the McGregor Cup with any luck.
16U Aquila: In a very competitive tournament at RIM Park on Sunday, the team erased a rough start to the day and ended up taking 5th in the tournament and securing another tournament at Championship for the McGregor Cup.
16U Takoba: Had a number of close sets throughout the day that were decided by a mere two points. A couple of bounces the other way and the team would have been in the top four for the day. Finished 7th.
15U Shujaa: A solid day in Maple, ON. The team is getting stronger with each passing week. Finished 5th on the day playing up an age division.
15U Billao: Travelled to Stratford to compete in a 12-team tournament. Had a couple of tough stretches on the day that they couldn’t overcome. Finished 9th.
15U Sjambok: At their second 16U event of the season, the team competed in every match and gained more valuable touches as they continue to work in preparation for their next 15U tournament in January.
Congrats to all of our teams for a fun and action-packed weekend of play. Up next for all six teams is a trip to Buffalo for the Northeast Tournament Series event at the Buffalo Niagara Court Center in West Seneca, NY. Good luck teams!
