2015 Asics President's Day Classic, Omaha, NE
Great job to our Freeze 17-1 team who finished 15th in 15 Club out of 40 elite teams in the Asics President's Day Classic in Omaha, NE. Our 15-1 and 16-1 teams also played some great volleyball. Our 16-1 team was in 16 Open and only won 1 match and had some very close games despite being down 3 starting players. Our setter had to have emergency surgery to have her appendix removed in Omaha, our right side hitter went down with an ankle injury, and our libero was suffering from a previous back injury. Nevertheless, they fought hard as a team and held their heads high. It was an adventure. Our 15-1 team also did well. They finished 24th out of 55 elite teams in 15 Club.
