A first taste of OVA volleyball action for most
by Randy Pascal

Taking their team into what amounted to a first taste of OVA (Ontario Volleyball Association) competition for the very first time for almost the entire lineup, the Northern Chill U13 – Black squad left Orillia, last month, with a very good starting base upon which they can build.

Pool play had the locals facing teams that would finish third and fourth in the Provincial Cup – Trillium G competition, with the Chill knocked off by both the Barrie Elites – Black (14-25, 21-25) and Vision Volleyball – Red from North Bay (18-25, 20-25).

Battling the third place team in Pool “A”, the Sudbury girls suffered a 22-25, 15-25 setback at the hands of the Vision Volleyball – Blue, but eventually hit the win column with a 25-21, 25-21 triumph over the host, Orillia Suns – Heat.

Closing off their day with a battle for either 5th or 7th place, the Chill went toe to toe with the West Nipissing Wild, contesting the full three sets before eventually succumbing by a final score of 15-25, 25-18, 8-15.

“The girls played exceptionally well for their OVA debut,” noted head coach and Northern Chill alumnus, Carly Mauro. “Nerves were expected, but the girls pushed through, as a team, for their first competition.”

"Kate Rolston was a force to be reckoned with in both the front and back court, working extremely hard throughout the entire tournament. Paige Kultalahti stood out as a leader, bringing a positive energy on and off the court and helping the girls to remain a unit, throughout.”

The balance of the 2018-2019 Northern Chill U13 – Black roster includes Abbey Walker, Abby Laporte, Arianna Melanson, Danica Fleming, Emily Venna, Mackenzie St Pierre, Marguerite Lefebvre, Mia Robson, Teia Kolari and coaches Carly Mauro and Sara-Jo Santi.
