Pilipa’a wins silver bracket in Las Vegas

Las Vegas, NV – The Pilipa’a Girls’ 18’s finished the 2015 SCVA Las Vegas Classic Monday afternoon with an impressive 9-1 match record.   Pilipa’a compiled one of the best game win/loss records in the tournament at 19-3 and lost only one match the entire tournament. The lone loss was a 23-25, 25-23, 14-16 loss on Sunday that knocked them out of gold medal contention.  Despite the tough loss, Pilipa’a bounced back on Monday to win back-to-back matches and claim the silver bracket championship and 9th place overall in the 228 team field.

The tournament provided an opportunity for our unsigned seniors to be seen by many of the 300+ college scouts in attendance and will lead to collegiate scholarships for some of our athletes.

Mahalo to the numerous family members and friends that came out to support our girls. It was incredible to look up from the bench and see over 30 people who were there to cheer on our girls.  Mahalo to Coach Tino and Coach Ecko for sharing your time and knowledge with our kids. Mahalo to Aunty Kathy for keeping things running behind the scenes and for being the ultimate travel director. Mahalo to the parents who took on laundry and shopping duty and a special mahalo to Ben Fuata for providing snacks and drinks every day  to keep our girls fueled up for the tournament.

I’m looking forward to the rest of the season and seeing where the future takes this great group of kids.

– Coach Chris
