We went into this thing ranked 4th of 5 and that's how we finished. We had two somewhat lopsided games in the beginning, then had a close loss for game 3, then won game 4 for a 1-3 record. Unfortunately, that put us just out of the running for a Challenge Round spot, so we were eliminated from the hunt. Nonetheless, we had a great time and improved as the event went on.
Looking ahead, we were the only team to enter the WA women's club playdowns, so we'll go directly to the Club National Championships in March in Utica, NY, and my teammates will also get first shot at the WA Pacific International Cup berth. The P.I.C. is held in April near Vancouver, and I'll most likely be going with California.
Thank you to everyone for all your support. It was so much fun and I can't wait to compete again!
