Historic Ms Pakmen 15U, 16U and 17U medal wins at 17U Championship
In week 1 of the Provincial championships the Ms Pakmen 16U team made history by becoming the first Pakmen girls team to win a Division 1 Tier 1 championship winning the 16U girls title.
This weekend the Pakmen girls were at it again setting a few more records for the club and possibly Ontario. For perhaps the first time ever teams from the same club of 3 different age levels won medals in the same provincials championship. The Ms Pakmen 15U, 16U and both 17U teams all won medals at the 17U girls championship in Waterloo April 17-19.
The youngest team Ms Pakmen 15U waded into the 17U provincial championship ranked number 1 in the 17U girls Division 2. Despite playing teams upwards of 2 years older than them they finished with a 7-2 record losing only two matches both in 3 sets to the eventual Gold and Silver medalists. The feisty youngsters fought through illnesses and playing out of position to win the Division 2 Tier 1 Bronze medal and do their part in the club’s historic moment.
Ms Pakmen 17U Black was also swimming the waters looking for something to bring home. They went into the weekend ranked 30th but fought their way up winning the Division 1 Tier 4 Bronze medal. A great effort by the team to take home some hardware.
For Ms Pakmen 17U Gold and Ms Pakmen 16U it was a case of the Irresistible Force meeting the Immoveable Object. The Ms Pakmen 17U Gold team had won 2 of the Premier Tournaments this year and the other was won by… Ms Pakmen 16U. It was destiny that they would meet in the final and they did. It was a hard fought match with Ms Pakmen 16U winning in 3 sets 25-15, 16-25, 15-10.
With this Ms Pakmen 16U set perhaps another record of winning the Provincial Championship in Division 1 Tier 1 in two age groups 16U and 17U an incredible accomplishment. This combined with all four teams from 3 different age groups winning medals made for a historic weekend for the Pakmen girls who have made their mark on Ontario. Congratulations to all the teams.
