Capitol Hill Classic Star Search Day 2 by Prep Volleyball
This year, our club was fortunate enough to have a VERY talented young athlete sing the Canadian National Anthem at the Rock and Rumble. Sophia Tice plays on our Hurricanes 13U Blue team and even though she was fighting a cold during the week, she still managed to belt out an amazing rendition of the anthem. Thanks to Gaby for capturing the moment for us, and congratulations to the players who represented us.
Many of our Hurricanes stood out and were featured in Prep Volleyball’s Star Search.
Jen Zhu, 16U Black, “… became the go-to arm that did not falter. Everyone knew it was going to her and she stayed persistent by working her angles and swinging in tough situations. ”
Others who stood out on Day 1:
Aimee Lemire, OH, 17 Black
Jenna Peters, Setter, 17 Black
Emma Becke, 5-6 Libero, 16 Black
Emily Foest, 5-11 OH, 17 Black
Tara Garvey, 5-10 MB, 16 Black – “Can be (will be) scary-good! So much physicality with her arm swing and attacking, jumping ability and power.”
Carly Anderson, Setter, 16 Black. Carly was selected as one of the Players of the Night at the showcase, “A hard worker who jump-set nearly everything.”
Marlee Horton, MB, HRVC Hurricanes 15 Blue
Paige Hagan, 5-10 OH, Halton Hurricanes 15 Blue
Reese Cholette, OH, HRVC Hurricanes 15 Black
Mya Newton, 6-1 MB, 16 Black “Tremendous hand contact and attacks the ball high, too. Has good control with the ball. A coach said, “I might even put her on the outside!”
Matea Skenderika, 5-10 RS, 16 Black – “Great jump float serve.”
Chayse Victoria, 5-11 Setter, 16 Black
Congrats to our 15U Black team, who won gold in the silver division.
Monday night the Hurricanes held the first of what will be become an annual tradition the Hurricanes WHOplah. A night all about our club culture to highlight the importance of being something bigger than just you or your team.
The night revealed (the WHO in WHOplah) who your Hurricanes sister was for the season, a mentor program that partners older athletes with younger athletes.
After a brief chit chat the sister teams competed in silly, competitive games that had everyone laughing. A great night executed by the 18U team sure to be a great new tradition for the Hurricanes. And there was even a surprise visit from Santa with a gift for all the girls.
Happy Holidays Hurricanes!
