Now for the teams updates!

14 Orange—The ladies of the 14 Orange began the NASA spring bash with a bang winning the first match in 2. They would drop a nail-biter in 3 by 2 points and be taken to 3 yet again only to fall by another few points. Heading into the playoffs they win the first match but get pushed to 3 again for the 3rd time in the tourney and fall by another 2 points. Don’t worry ladies you beat every team you played at least once. Work harder in practice and your two points will come

15 Orange—Capturing the highest finish of the Spring Bash the ladies of the 15 Orange had special reason to celebrate as it served as the very first time that mother of Deidra Bohanon had an opportunity to watch her daughter and her daughter shined. Kill after kill, backed up by her entire team, the club came together to make this occasion as special as it could be as the team remained undefeated until the Semi-final match in which they suffered their very first loss. Finishing @ 3rd place we would all like to say, Congratulations ladies.

15 White—After several strong tournament finishes in a row the 15 White fell one win short of the playoffs the weekend before the Bash in Chattanooga. They will face off again in the Peachtree Classic next weekend.

16 Diamond—Even though they were missing two starters on day 1 and 3 on day two, fighting injuries and players sidelined by sickness the 16 Diamond won the first set of the tournament but was edged out in 3, 16-14 (another 2 points) in the first match. They never looked back though remaining undefeated the rest of the day and secured 2nd place in pool on day 1, after defeating new rival Tsunami amidst a sea of onlookers. The Orange and black came out with a bye in the first round of playoffs and finished the tournament tied for 5th place in Gold.

16 White—Attacked by illness Noelle Richards was rushed to the emergency room in Birmingham at the tournament early on day 1. Understandably shaken, the team was unsteady and though Noelle is now ok. This tight knit team fought with their heads and bodies but their hearts were with their team mate. Stay Strong ladies. No shame. Next Fight—we take em down.

17 Diamond—This little pocket rocket soars to it’s 3rd semi final in a row. Capturing 3rd place and going down to Region #1 KVC. The link http://www.atlantaboomtoday.com/choochoocity.html will show highlights of this team winning over, and over, and over.

17 Orange—The ladies of the 17 Orange fought hard all weekend and played well. When they won they won decisively, when they lost they lost by two points. This team took the tournament champion to 3 in the very 1st match of the event. They lost @ 22, won @ 21, and lost @ 13. Two points! Sometimes the entire tournament is won or lost in the very first match. They burst into the playoffs and dug in, but were forced out missing two of their best players.

18 Diamond—Tired from the 3 day Vegas trip having arrived at 5am in the morning Monday, the 18 lady Diamonds suffered more losses in a single day than they had in the last 3 tournaments. Even playing at a reduced level, we only lost by 2 and 3 points. However; the next day saw remarkable improvement as they all went to sleep promptly at 9:50pm the night before. Going undefeated, The 18 Lady Diamonds captured the silver championship on day 2, at the Beast of the Southeast tourney defeating both A5 and Club South in the playoffs.

18 Orange—Saw interest from several colleges as team captain Keandra Lewis and new hitting sensation Jasmine Adams fought with the team to have a great day one. The team finished tied for 5th, losing in 3 in their playoff round. The 18 Orange get their next shot on the tour in the Peachtree Classic on Mar 14/15.

Congrats on a great week Atlanta Boom!

Thank you to all of the parents who make this possible
