16 Black places 2nd in Gold at Purple Showdown

The 16 Black had a great tournament this weekend.  We went undefeated in pool play to advance to the Gold bracket.  We then beat the CSRA Heat in two games.  We faced the Palmetto Strikers in the Gold Finals.  

The Palmetto Strikers won the last tournament and did not lose a set the entire tournament.  At the Purple Showdown it looked like they were going to repeat their run.  

We lost the first match but came from behind to win the second match, handing the Palmetto Strikers their first set loss this season.  The Strikers ended up winning the deciding set.

I am very proud of how our girls played the entire tournament.  

GO LIGHTNING!!!
