Hitting Aces and Taking Names at Palos Point
Our 16 Red Team played a fantastic Day 1 with a 2-1 finish for 2nd in the pool. The team worked well together to bring a strong Day 2 finish with a 3rd place finish in the pool. Great job guys on making big strides from our first tournament. We all look forward to what you can accomplish next!
15 Red played well against 16 teams winning some key games and holding their own in some tight situations. A 6 point difference between 5-1 and 3-3 undefeated against 15s teams.
15 Blue showed some true passion out on the court winning 5 out of 10 games on day 1 including a match win against a 16s team! Day 2 was a bit of a nail biter with 2 close 3 game matches. Great work as a team!
A Fantastic Start for the 17s and 18s in our first Volleyball Tournament!
On 10/27 Chicago Bounce participated in the first tournament of the season, the Adversity Invite held in Vernon Hills.
The 18 Red team achieved a second place finish after a hard played 3 games against Energy in the Championship game! The 18 Red was certainly ‘red hot’ as they worked together as a team to beat each team, including the multiple home Adversity teams to make it to the Championship game. “The 18 Red came together as a team and knew what they wanted to accomplish,” said Blake Orlov, head coach of Chicago Bounce. “We’ll continue to build off this wonderful momentum as we prepare for the next tournament. They should be proud of their accomplishment.”
The 17 Red team also showed themselves to be a building powerhouse. The team worked together to take down the home team as well as TNT 18s team to make it to their first playoff! “The momentum is building and they clearly know what they need to do to take their playing to the next level,” continued Coach Orlov. “We all look forward to their performance at the next tournament. They’ll be ready!”
