The 2014-2015 season was Lokahi's third full Aloha Region junior season, with most of the girls from the previous season's successful 14U teams returning, again as 14U, along with many other girls ranging from 11U/12U through 18U. The Teams featured below are the 14U mainland travel Teams. Though we also had the many other age group girls, they will not travel to the mainland and their coaches opted to not take team photos so they are not pictured on this site which is dedicated to our junior teams.
Both 14U travel Teams started the local tournament season with good success, working to build up to travelling to Orlando, Florida to compete in the AAU Junior National Championships.
The 2015 Lokahi 14U Red Team was completely comprised of returning players with the nucleus being veterans of the previous season's 14U Red Team (when all but one were actually 13U). As such, they have retained the outstanding Team chemistry that contributed to their previous seasons' successes and they started the 2015 season by playing for the championship of each of their first six tournaments, winning four and finishing second twice. Over the course of the season they compiled a set win/loss record of 93-20, an 82.3% ratio, while winning 7 of 14 tournaments played. They won the 14U Regional Championship Bronze Division by going undefeated in that division. They competed very well in Orlando, playing three sets in six of their eleven matches but losing in the semifinals of their division championships. This Red Team was truly greater than the sum of its individual players and if they stay together and continue to learn and improve, we look forward to continued future success.
The 2015 Lokahi 14U Gold team was comprised of a few returnees from the previous seasons, with the rest being newcomers. Led by their returnees, they worked to learn Mr. P's system and skill techniques and to develop Team chemistry. They competed, early in the 2015 season already having accomplished more than any previous season's Gold Team, including winning their pool and coming within four points of winning their first ever tournament championship. They succumbed to a mid-season let-down when other activities interfered with several of them attending practice regularly, but thanks to good Team leadership, pulled together to compete in Orlando, winning their final day division championship. Congratulations Gold Team! We look forward to continued growth and success for those returning players.
