The Texas Invasion 11u team entered their second tournament of the season this past weekend at the Big Tex Showdown. It was a one day tournament that pushed the girls to their ultimate limit. The team played a total of 12 sets, the last 8 being in a row with no breaks. The team was on their feet for 11 hours and worked harder than they have ever worked before. They gave their blood, sweat, injury and tears to the game and left it all on the court. Each and every player had amazing passes, sets, kills and ace winning serves. Each player was an integral part to winning each and every game, set after set. They reached their point of exhaustion and fell short in the last game taking second place overall. But this second place is not a first place loser. It is the outcome of brand new players being pushed to their limits and proving to all that they CAN do it! We are proud to be Texas Invasion and we wear our medals with heartfelt joy. This is one of many wins to come for the 11u team. They cannot be stopped!
Texas Invasion was represented this past weekend at the Winterfest, Early Bird Classic, and the North Texas Rumble.
At the Early Bird, our 17s and 16s kicked off the weekend finishing in silver and gold. The 16s fought to overcome missing two of their players on Saturday and took home 4th in Silver on Sunday. The 17s team finished 1st in their pool on Saturday. On Sunday they finished 6th overall!
Our brand new club prep program played in the North Texas Rumble. This is their first time playing on the club scene and all three teams did excellent! Coach Whitney's 12u team went to Silver, Coach Abbe's 13u and Coach Emily's 14u both went to Gold!
Our 14u Elite, 13u National, and 15s Elite Terri all participated in Winterfest. All three teams finished their Saturday in the Gold bracket. The 14s finished in 5th place overall. The 15s played in a combination 15 and 16 age bracket and finished 5th overall! The 13u National team finished in 1st place and brought home gold medals and the trophy!
