Its nice to win one! Congrats to OVA 16 Blue on winning their Power League this past weekend. Way to go ladies! Keep making us proud! And OVA 16 Nationals had a great weekend and is now ranked 3rd in Gold in Power League, with OVA 16 Silver just a couple brackets behind. And congrats to OVA/RR 18 Nationals and OVA 18 Silver - both placing in Gold and Silver respectively.
Colorado Crossroads results: Congratulations to all the teams on their recent successes. OVA 14 Nationals was the first to travel to Colorado Crossroads and played well - finishing in the top half of their division and almost going undefeated on the second day. They used their experience to win their division of Power League and have now moved up two full divisions in the last two Power Leagues. Way to go ladies!
The 18 Nationals, 16 Nationals and 16 Silver survived long delays, snowy airports and slow travel to make it to Denver. 18 Nationals played in one of the toughest pools in tournament history, with the 3 other teams in their pool all being ranked in the top 20 in the country. Lots of colleges around watching the girls play and they had a great tournament. 16 Nationals had a great tournament, going undefeated on the last day and winning the Bronze Division, finishing top 20 overall - a great finish in a very tough division. And 16 Silverhad a great tournament as well, ending up in the top half of their division and nearly winning their bracket. Just as importantly, the girls had a ton of fun, bonded and have some great memories about their trip.
A lot of OVA players got noticed by colleges and made some in-roads on their future at the next level. In fact, one 8th grader (playing on OVA 16 Nationals) even came away being recruited by some D1 schools and said they are ready for her to commit when she is ready, even if that is right now (she's 13) - congrats Jade!
At the Academy level - OVA 12's Bobby continued its recent string of wins and won the last 12's tournament hosted by Rimrock. Way to go ladies!!! All of our teams are back in action this weekend - GO TEAM OVA!
GO TEAM OVA!!!
