On the day, the Upangas did not drop a set.  In fact, the team has a 9-1 match record in OVA tournament play thus far this season.  Taking first place in today’s tournament was the team’s priority and they did not disappoint.  Stellar play was provided by each and every one of the girls, and their individual and team efforts gave them all of the necessary opportunities to get the job done, and done well.

Sights are now set on a “Friendly” event on Feb 19th where the Upangas will face a few teams that are ranked in the Top 30 in Ontario.  This event will provide a great platform for the team as they prepare for the final regular season OVA event of the year on March 5/6.

Congrats to the Upangas on their remarkable play and result.  Upwards and onwards we go!
