Recap of the Sand Tourney

I went in and watched the sand tournament in anchorage this last weekend. There was a good turnout of 16 teams. Five of the teams had Palmer players and alumni on them. Morgan & Kendal were the only Palmer pair to match up and play together. They did real well and I think they had a good time. Jordan and Zoe, who played for Palmer in 08, paired up and hit the court. They did pretty well, but once they were out, challenged Morgan and Kendal to game and they duked it out all by themselves with the youngest Venske reffing their game.

I'll mention Stella too, even though she isn’t a Palmer kid, because we see her every week at our Palmer camp. She played well and took a solid 3rd place, which was a nice improvement over last time. Well done!

Kasara was there with a friend from Anchorage, I was only able to see a bit of them playing, but I heard about her bball camp down in Stanford and how she saw Foluke Akinradewo standing on the side of the court watching. If you don't know who that is, I suggest googling her. Amazing player for Stanford a couple years ago. Its to bad Kasara didn't go say hi to my friend John for me. I'm sure he would have like that.

Tiffany Secoy, who played for Palmer in 03, made her sand debut with a decent finish in bracket play, while Emily Sakis who played in 02, won her second straight sand championship.
