Thank you so much for the continued support from ROX!!! Lovin it!!
I think I have sent updates from all tournaments up through May..so here’s the most recent updates:
May 11-16 NORCECA Mexico:
This was such a fun tournament - it was neat to see how we fared against competition from other countries. There were 13 total womens teams and we won We went undefeated the entire tournament. We defeated Nicaragua and Trinidad in pool play. We then went on and defeated Puerto Rico in quarterfinals. After we had a tight match with Mexico in the semi finals. They definitely had a home court advantage but we pulled out a 15-13 win. Then finally we defeated Cuba in the finals!
There was a great crowd for the entire tournament with record breaking crowd numbers for NORECA event - over 4,000 people filled the stadiums.
If you would like to read more about the win you can find more information at USA Volleyball, BVB Info, The NVL, and NORCECA.
May 18-21 NVL Baltimore:
This was a tough tournament. We lost 2 very close matches in 3 to 2 very good teams! We ended up placing 9th in the overall tournament. The matches were streamed live on the internet - available to anyone to watch. We played at the Inner Harbor, which was very busy with a lot of foot traffic. Some of top players in the country participated - Lisa Rutledge, Annette Davis, Jenny Kropp, Whitney Pavlik….
May 28 - EVP Naples - I will be playing with Tara Kuk since Kristen will be out of town. This is an invite only event so I’m expecting some top teams from around the country.
June 4 - Dig the Beach Fort Myers - Playing with Kristen. I don’t think there are any other beach events this weekend so top teams from Florida will be participating.
June 11 - Corona Siesta - Playing with Kristen. First Corona of the season. Huuuuuge event!! Everyone from Cali and all over the United States will be coming for this event! So excited for it!!
Again, thanks so much for the support!! We love ROX!!
