Tigers Black Keep Moving Up!
The Region of Waterloo Volleyball Club's 16U Tigers "Black" Girls team just completed another successful weekend. The team entered Ontario Provincial Championships at the 16U Level as the #28 ranked team in the entire province and after three days of tough competition against the top teams finished by moving up 7 seeds to the #21 slot. They were "oh so close" to competing for a medal but lost a close quarter final match to the Coburg Breakers who went on to win the silver medal. Parents and coaches are extremely proud of what this team was able to accomplish and how they overcame many adversities to represent the Tigers as best as they could. Many life lessons were learned along the way. Way to go team!
The 16U Tigers see action again next weekend when they compete at the 17U Ontario Championships at RIM Park. Good Luck Ladies. Make us proud.

The Waterloo Tigers “Black” 16U Girls team travelled to London on Sat. March 2nd for the Forest City VBC 16U Invitational tournament at Montcalm Secondary School. During original pool play action the Tigers Black defeated London Fire, FCVC Blue, London Sharks and Oakville Lakeside to finish in first place. They then went on to play London Fire in semifinal action and this match went 3 games with the Tigers Black winning 15-11 in the third game. This set up a repeat against a very strong offensive team in Oakville Lakeside 16U. The Tigers Black was a determined bunch and won the final match with identical scores of 25-22 and 25-22. The coaching staff is extremely proud of the Tigers Black for their first ever “Gold” medal performance in the two years they have been together. This result came at a perfect time as the team is now preparing to compete in the 16U as well as the 17U Ontario Club Championships in April at RIM Park in Waterloo. The girls thus far have had a very successful season and can’t wait to play in Provincials. Good Luck Ladies!

“Silver Spikers Strike Again”
Congratulations once again goes out to the Waterloo Tigers Black 16U Girls team for bringing home their 3rd silver medal of the season after the January 19th 16U tournament hosted at the Stratford Agriplex. This is a beautiful volleyball facility if you can overcome the amazingly good smells that drift over from the Stratford Market.
The Tigers Black 16U team started the day off strong by defeating the Oakville Eagles 16U, the Niagara Rapids 16U Blue and the Tigers Red 16U team all in straight 2-0 sets. This result put the Tigers Black in first place in Pool A allowing them a break and to not have to play a quarter final.
The semifinal match saw the Tigers Black face off against Oakville Lakeside 16U team. It was a well fought and well coached match with the Tigers Black winning it 15-10 in the 3rd set. Lakeside is a very strong defensive team that move well and don’t allow any ball to hit the floor before a body does. Coach Carole had her team prepped to play the Tigers Black but the offensive juggernaut and blocking specialists would not be denied a chance to make the finals.
This set up a potential war between the 1st ranked Tigers against the 2nd ranked Niagara Rapids Black 16U team. Unfortunately for the Tigers they ran out of gas and could not sustain the constant pressure serving and pounding of balls from the Rapids losing two straight in the final. The better offensive team showed their true colors and why they were the #3 team overall in the province last year. Best of luck goes out to the “Silver Spikers” aka Tigers Black 16U Girls as they continue their season and look forward to participating in both 16U and 17U Ontario Championships.
A special mention and Thanks goes out to underage call up player from the 15U Tigers, Brittany Schmidt for helping us out due to a season ending injury to Brittney Covach. Also to our “Player of the Day” Libero Maria Prudencio for her amazing passing clinic she put on in every match bumping perfect 3’s.
Way to go Silver Spikers!
