A double heartbreaker for local volleyball crew
2019-02-09
by Randy Pascal

In the words of Northern Chill 14U – Blue head coach Glenn Murray, a quarter-final loss to the Georgian Cubs – Power from Barrie at the McGregor Cup – Trillium “D” tournament last month was a “double heartbreaker”.

Not only did his team suffer a setback to an opponent that they have vanquished in the past, but they did so by failing to capitalize on three set point opportunities in the opener, falling 26-28 and 20-25 in the end.

Seeded #1 entering the event, the Chill looked the part early, besting both the Storm Typhoon from Aurora (26-24, 19-25, 15-12) as well as the Barrie Elites – Blue (25-20, 17-25, 15-6). Their first place finish in Pool “A” earned the Sudbury girls a bye directly into the round of eight, where they lost to the Cubs.

Unfortunately, the team had a tough time overcoming that defeat, dropping the 5th/7th matchup to the Markham Wildcats – Puma by scores of 17-25, 18-25. “It was another learning experience for our young team,” said coach Murray. “But as they say, when it comes to the big game, your best players need to be your best players.”

“I plan on using this as fuel to motivate my team for the next tournament.” On an individual basis, the day was not without redeeming qualities. “Emma Harris was consistent in her play, all day long, Danyka Cholette had many good serving runs, and Kaja Beljo played solid defense for us,” said Murray.

Rounding out his roster, this year, are Shana Lessard, Danika Chenier, Elliana Blackwell, Hannah Crane, Gabrielle Comeau, Emily Audette, Ava Lamothe, Kayla Bouffard, Lindsay Murray and assistant coach André Comeau.
