BEACH CAMP REGISTRATION
Great way to have fun this summer,
Qualifying for Junior Nationals in the 12 American Division is tough to do. Sunshine's 12-Westside team had come so close to earning a bid at the L.A. qualifier, with a strong 5th place finish. They had seven wins and just one loss at that tournament -- and that wasn't good enough to get a bid.
So heading to Minneapolis for the Northern Lights qualifier, 12-Westside knew from experience that losing even one match in the tournament might also mean losing out on a bid -- and that was not a result they were willing to accept. They started day one without dropping a single game, with lopsided scores like 25-5. Day two got tougher, but they again took first in their pool. And in the gold medal bracket matches on day three, the team fought off tough teams in the semi-final and final matches to finish the qualifier UNDEFEATED, with a gold medal around their necks and a Junior National bid to boot!
Coached by Lenka Jamrichova with assistance from Ani Mardirossian and Athena Nestoras, the roster includes Jasie Belden, Sydney Braxton, Laurel Elliott, Kate Hassett, Ava Kaplan, Olivia Kaplan, Kerry Keefe, Camille Kosich, Branson Lennon, Sophia Lindus, Maeve Loughran, and Samantha Smolkin.
