The following players display all the characteristics of Team Pineapple volleyball players. Read the nominations below and you will understand why they were chosen as our Players of the Month!
11U-1 TEAM The 11U-1 team has had a great season so far. While they have mostly competed in 12U tournaments, we are excited for them to compete in their age division for USAV Nationals this summer! The sky is the limit for this team and we are excited to continue to watch them grow.
Brenna Ginder & Morgan Gaerte both have been crucial parts in leading our 12U-1 team to victories. Morgan brings energy and fun to the team too when we need her to. Brenna is always level headed and keeps the team in the right positions and helps when some girls get lost. - Coach Sarah
The 12U team has had a great overall season with many big wins under their belt! In April they won the Indy USA Challenge and took 2nd place at the TP 13U One Day event beating two 13U teams! All players have contributed major roles. This team will be tough to beat at Nationals!
Eva Hudson Led by Coach Brian Harris, the 14U-1 Open team has been having an amazing season overall! They were Smack Series 14 Premier Champions, finished 15th at Bluegrass in the 14U Open Division, and WON MEQ's making them our first team of the season to qualify for Nationals.
One individual in particular has really stood out: Eva Hudson. She helped lead her to team to very impressive results. She is really becoming one of the leaders on and off the court. She plays with great passion and energy that helps motivate her teammates. She puts in the work and is always ready to play. Her performance on the court is consistent and her stats during MEQ’s speak for themself:
Hitting - .403
Passing - 2.46
Aces - 11
