My 4th World Cup by Ryan Millar

by Brynn Murphy on November 8, 2011

This month has been about gearing up and getting ready to begin the qualification process for the upcoming Olympic Games.  That will begin on November 20th in Japan at the World Cup.  The top 3 teams out of the 12 participating will qualify.  Personally this will be my 4th World Cup with Team USA, the previous 3 we have finished in 4th place.  We have finished one spot away from qualifying each time.  I am definitely looking forward to breaking that streak this time.  We had our first practice today and it was great to get back ...

World Cup by Alisha Glass

by Brynn Murphy on November 2, 2011

Greetings all!  The team is back in Japan and getting ready for World Cup, the first attempt at Olympic qualification.  We came to Japan a little bit early in order to acclimate ourselves with time change, climate change, etc.  We trained and competed hard against each other in order to prepare for the tough schedule ahead.  This will be our last venture together as a team before we head to our professional teams.  We first stayed in a beautiful city called Otsu.  Our hotel overlooks the largest lake in Japan, Lake Biwa.  Although we prepared ourselves for...

Off to a Good Start! by Ryan Millar

by Brynn Murphy on September 21, 2011

At the end of August into the beginning of September, we competed in our zone championship in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.  When we play in Puerto Rico, we usually play in either in San Juan or Caguas, so a change in venue was something new.  It was very hot and very humid as we started practice in preparation for the start of the tournament.  We started off very strong, beating Trinidad and Tobago, Costa Rica, and Cuba to finish first in our pool.  A first place finish gave us a bye past the quarter finals, straight into the semi finals where we matched up against Puerto Rico...
