Strong serving and dominant net play helped the team go undefeated. The team’s first match-up was against the Crush U13 Red team which fought hard to take 13 points from the Chaos.

In game two, the Chaos clobbered Port Alberni Airborne 25-7, 25-2. The girls met Parksville in their last round-robin match, winning the first set 25-12. In the second set, the Chaos scratched out a 27-25 win.

Megan Turko and Sarah Chase controlled the net while Kaitlyn Herbert added to the attack in the middle with some strong swings. Power hitters Nicole Herbert and Hayley Zumkeller helped the effort with some well-placed shots.

Setters Kaitlyn Falk and Brooklyn Reesor did a great job setting up the attack and playing excellent defense.

In the other pool, the Crush U14 Quinsam Coal Attack defeated Nanaimo in a close match 25-23, 25-19. They followed up with a win against the Campbell River Crush U13 Black team.

In a strange twist, the girls played Nanaimo a second time with the winner advancing to the final. Nanaimo came out strong taking the first set 26-25 before the Attack regrouped and took the second in a convincing manner 25-18. Nanaimo edged out the Crush U14 Attack in the tie breaker 15-11.

The girls met Parksville in the bronze medal match losing the first set 20-25 before rolling over Parksville 25-7, 15-9. Tommi Corder led the scoring with her powerful serving.

All four Crush teams are training for the upcoming Island Championships on April 16-17, in Nanaimo.
