Ballhawks Sterling In Grabbing Silver
The 15U Chatham Ballhawks girls captured silver medals on the weekend in The McGregor Cup- OVA Championship tournament held in Chatham at Ursuline College.
The Ballhawks entered the tournament ranked 4th and shared a pool with Hamilton Smash- Purple and Forest City- Green out of London. The girls defeated Hamilton in 3 games (25-15. 22-25. 15-12), but were humbled by Forest city in 2 straight games (25-11, 25-16.)
Chatham entered the playoffs and faced the Waterloo Tigers- Black whom they started slow against but finally came out on top in 3 games yet again (19-25, 25-23, 15-9.) This brought up a rematch from the last tournament in Chatham but this time it was in the semi finals facing the other Forest City team in the tournament; Forest City- Blue. The result was very similar with the Chatham squad defeating London 2 straight (25-15, 25-21).
The Ballhawks then entered the finals against the Forest City Green team that defeated them earlier in pool play. The Ballhawks girls gave it their all pushing London to the brink, but were eventually defeated in 3 games (25-15, 20-25, 15-8). All of the girls made tremendous contributions throughout the day in helping secure the silver hardware in front of the home crowd.
