Red Tide 8th Grade (2019) finishes 8th in Nation at AAU Nationals.
Orlando, FL - The Red Tide had one goal all year long: Win the AAU Nationals. Coach Key Boyd knew from the beginning of the season that his team would be primed and ready for the journey that was ahead for his team. After repeating as the three time State Champions of Virginia, the girls set their sights on what had eluded them at last year’s AAU nationals – winning the National Championship. Well, the girls got off to a flying start as they opened up pool play against the Host team of the tournament (FL KA Lady Nightmares). It was indeed a nightmare for the host team as they trounced 65 to 12 by the Tide. In the second game of Pool Play, the Tide were matched up against the Crossfire team from Minnesota. Crossfire proved to be a formidable foe as they handed the Tide their first loss of Pool play wining 41 to 32. The Tide quickly refocused and got back on track winning the third game of Pool play against the Georgia Pistols 66 to 48 advancing the Tide to the Sweet and I do mean Sweet 16. The Tide were laser focused in this game as they handed the CBC Elite team a big “L” winning 58 to 42 advancing them to the Elite 8. The Tide knew the matchup in the Elite 8 game against the Mavericks from Arizona would be a barn burner. In this nail bitter, the Mavericks edged out the Tide 68 to 60 and ended the dreams of winning the National Championship. Nevertheless, all the hard work and determination paid off for the Tide this year as the finished 8th in the Nation. What a remarkable accomplishment for this team. The Red Tide organization is proud the players, coaches and parents for this outstanding achievement. Next up for the Tide is the US Junior Nationals in Washington DC.
