Pilipa’a Boys – Austin Game Day 4

The Pilipa’a Boys wrapped up play at the 2010 USA Volleyball Junior Nationals with a disappointing 5-5 record and finished 13th out of 53 teams in the Boys 18U club division.    There were moments of brilliance when Pilipa’a’s offense and defense showed that they were as strong as any team in the division, however inconsistent play and numerous errors plagued them throughout the tournament which featured one of the strongest fields in recent years.

“The mainland teams seem to be getting taller and more skilled in the 18’s division each year and the blocking schemes created more problems for us than they have in the past,” said Coach Ecko. At times our play was very spectacular,  but in the end untimely errors gave other teams the momentum needed to win. We’re proud of our team’s efforts and their ability to stick together.”  Osorio added.

Pilipa’a returns to Hilo Wednesday evening at 7:56 pm on Hawaiian Airlines.
