18u PL / 14u Friendship

Tuesday, February 6, 2018

Stay tuned for the State of the Club address on Thursday.

18-1
The Hiki No curve is starting to kick in. This was the most consistent tournament and it was nice to see the improvement since the last tournament. While finishing the day 4-1, unfortunately it was the one loss that kept us from moving up to Gold. Hopefully the successful day will be the fuel needed for the next week leading up to our first big national tournament next week.

18-2

The quote goes, “Adversity is what one must face in order to become successful”. After a solid first part of the season, adversity in a couple of forms/shapes/sizes have hit this team and how quickly and effectively they chose to respond, will show their true character! No time for excuses, only time and effort getting back to working, studying and improving themselves individually and as a team. Just 2 short weeks till Vegas Tourney, Lezzzgoooo!!!

14u
This past weekend we focused on “Putting the FUN back into Fundamental’s” with a mixed team of 14’s and 13’s playing in a Friendship Tournament.

It was exciting to see inexperienced players taking advantage of their opportunity for meaningful playing time with energy, enthusiasm, and passion. Their inspired playing is a testament to all the hard work they had put in during the season.

In addition, we put the more experienced players into new roles and difficult positions to help them grow and develop into better all-around players.

Regardless of the outcome everyone had a great time with memorable individual performances that they can use to build upon for the rest of the season.

14u Qualifier 2

Friday, February 2, 2018

14u
14-1s: “Quality Touch” was the quote for the day while incorporating and improving on everything we’ve worked on since the start of the season. It was evident that when we did what we were supposed to, the girls and team experienced success. As a good learning tool, we will take and use our mistakes (both good and bad ones) as fuel to work harder and build more mental toughness for short and long-term growth! One important friendship tourney this Saturday plus a few more trainings to clean up some things before our next PL… HIKI NO!

13u
The 13-1’s went 3-2 on their second qualifier and will be moving up another bracket for Power League. After a strong 2-0 start, the team faced their first real challenge of the season. Even in defeat our girls played fundamentally sound volleyball and made the other teams earn every point. The girls responded with grit, determination, and a “never die” attitude, especially after losing their team captain, Tehani, to an ankle injury. Their play, sound technique and energy throughout the tournament earned them the respect and admiration of the opposing team players, coaches and parents.

18u and 16u Qualifiers

Wednesday, January 24, 2018

18-1
The team started out the day battling through the first two matches of the day. Being a point of emphasis, it was good to see the most consistent energy and play all year. The rest of the day saw the inconsistency from the week before. We were able to hold seed and head into the first power league in a tough Silver pool. We’ll continue to build our mental toughness and strive for consistency.

18-2
T.H.N. stood for “Toughness – Heart – Nascent”! With only 8 (of 10) players physically available with majority of them battling some kind of cold/sickness, this group gave a lot of themselves showing some true toughness, grit, moxie & pure determination. After almost pulling off a win in our last match of the day, it was a short but proud day for Coach Kyle & parents that encouraged & appreciated all that the girls brought & gave of themselves. Let’s get healthy & back in the gym to prepare for phase 2 of our special season together! Keep grinding, rowing, pounding & trusting in the process… Hiki No!

16-1
After a decent start battling against a well-coached & tough NPJ Bend team, our team couldn’t muster up enough to take care of business in our last 2 pool play matches & unfortunately continued on for most of bracket play as well. Hopefully a learning & maturing lesson in which will never be duplicated. Fortunately, there was a handful of good things that arose, was seen, & realized throughout the day that will be used to build upon for our fast approaching Qualifier #2. Confident we will take care of the necessary things & hold ourselves more accountable & responsible for the sake of the TEAM!

16-2
So proud of this team I am leading! Making big goals and learning all day. We went Undefeated for first power league. You will continue to grow with the hard work that you are willing to put forth. Such a coachable group. Communication and control of the game led us to victory. Keep the Hiki No spirit girls and keep reaching!! Big congrats!
Coach, Tammy Cooper

MHM and Friendship

16u Friendship
The T.E.A.M. HiKi No 16-3 made their 1st appearance at the MAC Friendship tournament over the MLK Jr. weekend. Made up of 16’s, 14’s and 13’s players they rallied from a tough round of pool play to get 2nd place in the Silver Bracket. Having a solid foundation allowed the girls to quickly learn to work together and trust one another. What the girls lacked with experience playing and practicing together they made up for it with heart and positive energy. They were easily the loudest and most energetic team at the tournament as well the most exciting team to watch. Appearances by former HiKi No players and coaches also added to the excitement and fun which made this tournament truly memorable.

Matt Hartner Memorial Classic

16-1
“Continue to Grind, Grow & Get After It”! Our quote for the wknd which was the perfect summation of where we are at currently. This group’s main challenge is themselves & how they will each individually break out of their comfort zones & push their own mental limits in search of their true potential. When playing with self-discipline & sense of urgency, we play at our best & can compete at the highest of levels. NO MORE WAITING, Lezzzzgoooo!!!

16-2
Great work this weekend at the MLK tourney from the T.E.A.M. Hiki No 16-2 team! This group of girls set out to accomplish individual and team goals which led the team to some great victories and proof that the Hiki No culture is working. Team goals of bringing focus and determination was achieved by many. I am excited to see the continued hard work and growth to come. Dig deep!! Great job!!

18-1
It was nice to get out and play some games at a great tournament. The team was able to spend a lot of time together and see the progress they’ve made since the beginning of the season. Consistency with energy and effort was the big takeaway as this weekend was very up and down. With the first tournament of the year complete, we’re looking forward to qualifier this weekend.

18-2
“Consistency & Self-Discipline”! Clearly showed itself this wknd in Eugene… On day 1 & 3, we surely lacked it both individually & as a team resulting in poor volleyball. Let’s do whatever necessary to compete & come out like day 2 which was one of the cleanest, purist, & beautiful volleyball these girls have ever seen or been a part of. Even Coach Kyle was in ‘AWE’ & shared with the team & parents that it was one of the best & cleanest-prettiest days of volleyball he’s ever seen! Never easy, but hope this great group of girls realize the potential & greatness they are capable of producing TOGETHER! #HNLG
