Team THUNDER
SAVL Ice Breaker Gold Champions
Surviving 2017 Snowmageddon and injuries, Team Thunder battles
to win their first tournament as a new team.  While other divisions
were cancelled, the Blue division in Hendersonville proved snow
worthy.  After receiving the call early Saturday morning to head to the
gym, Thunder came out strong against South Performance (SO)
with a 25-13, 25-13 win.  During warm-ups of the second match,
setter Emily Long suffered a tournament ending injury.  Forced to
take an out of system substitution, Thunder lost the first set to CJV
15 Rick (CR) 25-12. They fought back to win set 2 26-24 while losing
the match 14-16 followed by a match wins against Xcel 15X Select
(CR) 25-20, 26-24 and Upward Stars Anna (PM)25-17, 27-19 to
finish tied for first in Pool with CJV.

With a new game plan, Thunder defeated CJV 25-2d, 25-14 in the
Challenge match to advance to the Gold Division.
Thunder faced the #2 seed Carolina Islanders (PM), another strong 15s teams, in the Gold semi finals, 25-11, 25-20 to advance.  In the
toughest match of the tournament, Thunder faced Grand Strand Juniors Alex in the finals.  After six attack errors right off the bat, Thunder
dropped the first set 22-25, however rebounded to take sets two and three 25-21. 15-7.  Success is attributed to several players stepping up
to play non traditional roles, aggressive blocking and offense in Sunday.  

We want to give a huge shot out to SAVL, Xcel Sports and Grand Strand Juniors for the long hours, dedication and long hours in some pretty
serious bad weather.  Thank you for a great first tournament!
