They both made huge strides from the first match to the last. it was our first time actually playing matches so of course it’s going to be a little shaky, but the guys did awesome. I’m really proud of the growth we demonstrated as players and as people.
Brady DeDominicis was a key player for the Red team in the tournament. He was really consistent and went into beast mode when we really needed points. Simranjeet Singh Brar was also a fierce player, even when switching positions once a while. Terence Wastesicoot also hasn’t played much Volleyball in recent years but really held his own and showed immense amount of potential. His hard work and dedication is really paying off.”
