Pilipa'a Volleyball

USA Volleyball Junior Nationals – Day 2

Pilipa’a began day 2 of competition with a matchup with undefeated Premier 15 Gold (17th seed). We had set a goal getting better in each match. Our girls were a bit inconsistent in game 1 and lost 25-15, however they came back strong in the second game. Passing, setting and hitting were all pretty steady and Pilipa’a cruised to a 25-18 win. Errors proved costly in the third set as Pilipa’a lost 15-8.

Pilipa’a started strong against Aspire 15N in their second match, but were unable to keep pace with the team from Tempe, Arizona losing in two 25-22, 25-19.

Our girls started the tournament as the 48th seed, but have shown that they can compete with any of the teams that they have played. They have improved their ranking to 33rd and are striving to be more consistent. They play again tomorrow morning at 9am and 10am EST and depending on how they play, they will play tomorrow afternoon at 2 or 3pm EST. We are posting a live score board on Pilipaa.com during the matches. We will do the same again tomorrow assuming we can get a decent internet connection from our court.
