The girls U16 Burlington Blaze Volleyball Club put up a strong fight in Cambridge on October 29. The Blaze finished 5th in a strong division.

In their first match of the day, Burlington faced off against the Milton Storm. After an upsetting loss in the first set, 11-25, the Blaze pulled through to come back in two straight sets, 25-10, and 15-13.

After coming off a great win, the U16 girls were set to compete against the Waterloo Tigers Black. Although the Blaze played hard, the match went to Waterloo, 12-25, and 8-25.

Finishing second in their pool, Burlington had to match up against the home team, Cambridge. The match went back and forth with both teams playing with skill and determination. Scores for the game were 25-18, 23-25, and 15-8. In the end, Burlington came out the winner.

A win in their next match would put the Blaze in the medal round. They had to face the Waterloo Tigers Black U15 team. Although the girls kept it close, Waterloo ended the match 15-25, and 25-27 in a close second set.

In the last match after a tiring day, Blaze played Waterloo Tigers Red. In straight sets Burlington defeated the Tigers 25-19 and 25-21 to steal 5th place.

Coach Andrew Nicholson gives honourable mention to the following members of the team: Amie Belanger, a resident of Waterdown, demonstrated excellent leaderships skills as the tournament progressed; Brittany Gumbert was a breath of fresh air with her constant enthusiasm; Emily McDade did a fabulous job coming off the bench at crucial points during the day and Laura Moffat grew increasingly stronger as her court time increased. Leah Franco promises to be a growing force at the net this season for the U16s as well.

The U16 girls expect to get to the medal round in their next tournament on home turf in Burlington on December 3.
