Bronze Medal Baby!!!Courtney Ryan
We won a Bronze Medal! I am so thrilled and excited to announce that we came home with some hardware! Going into the Games, we were viewed as the underdogs. A young team rostered with a bunch of nobodies that will be lucky to get the opportunity to play in the 7th/8th place game. It is safe to say we surprised a lot of people! Not only did we beat Germany in the Bronze medal game, we also got the opportunity to play against Canada in the Quarterfinal game, the team that beat us in the Parapan American Games during the Gold medal match, REDEMPTION! We beat them in the quarterfinal game, and continued on to the semifinals against a strong team, China. We played against China during pool play, but did not get the outcome we wanted. We lost by one point. We were hungry to come back and get another opportunity to play against them in the semifinals. Unfortunately, we did not get the outcome we wanted. But we were not going to allow that loss to affect the outcome of our Bronze medal game. We played against Germany, it was either go home with some hardware, or go home empty handed. We finished the job and won a Bronze medal!
Now, I am back to work and taking some much needed time to rest before I prepare for the next major competition. GO TEAM USA! GO TEAM PossAbilities!
