Pilipa’a Girls – Day 2 Phoenix

It’s about 9:30pm on Sunday and day 2 has come to a close.  The girls are asleep and ready for the competition tomorrow.

The girls started their day with a  trip to the massive Phoenix Convention Center in downtown Phoenix to check in to the tournament. Check in was followed by a 90-minute practice on court 49 in one of the three exhibit floors turned into volleyball sport courts for the tournament. The girls had a great practice and are excited to begin playing.  The girls participated in the Opening Ceremonies for the tournament at Chase Field (AZ Diamondbacks stadium) along with thousands of other girls from over 500 teams from around the country and world.  They walked on the field in the parade of athletes and were recognized on stage and the jumbo video screen along with the rest of the teams.

Pilipa’a starts the tournament as the 12th seed in the 14U division and will play Excel VBC 14-2 tomorrow morning at 9am AZ time (6am HST). We’ll post scores and pictures as soon as possible tomorrow.  Wish us luck!

Good luck to the Pilipa’a Boys 18’s who are on their way to Austin, TX this evening.
