The Conejo Quakes 5th/6th Grade Team played in the Conejo Quakes Summer Finale at CLU on August 3rd and 4th. Normally the 5th/6th was one team, but with so many players available, the team was split into 5th only and 6th only and they both had their best showing of the Summer Season. After playing in five tournaments this Summer as a new squad, the players really showed their development with impressive wins in their respective pools.
6th Grade went 2-0 on Saturday with great wins over Oxnard Jagz and SCV Crossover. 5th Grade also went 2-0 with close wins over Oxnard Force and Ojai Lightning.
Since both teams hadn't played in a Championship Game this Summer as we were still developing, we decided to have some fun in the last game of the Summer Season and 5th played against 6th in the Final. I must admit, it was a fun way to end the season.

On July 21st to 23rd, the Conejo Quakes Green High School Team went to Las Vegas to play in a NCAA Viewing Tournament and had a great showing in the Open Division. It was a nice way to get a couple looks from college coaches and see a variety of teams from other states, while having fun on the road too.
Team team went 3-2 with wins of two different Balboa Hills (CA) teams and a team from New Mexico. The two losses were very close to teams from Utah and a team from Nevada. The girls played really well and showed what they could do at a very high level of competition.
