Horizon Teams Win GOLD at 2018 NITs!

The 2018 National Indoor Tournament proved to be Horizon FHC’s finest with two teams taking home GOLD as pool champions!

U14 Blue under the direction of Head Coach Alison Miraglia and Assistant Coach Leah Angstadt broke the “second place curse” that has long plagued Coach Alison and Coach Leah!  After dropping their first game 0-2, the team roared back to win three games and tie one.  That effort was enough to earn GOLD and a Pool M Championship for Horizon Blue.

Horizon Blue Team Members: Rachel Fosbenner, Ashley Rivituso, Maeve Boston, Becca Olsen, Celeste Giangiulio, Sofia Brown, Kyra Curci, Izzy Carlino, Halle Brown and Kayla McMenamin

U19 Burn also turned in a championship performance at this year’s NIT.  Team Burn led by Head Coach Debbie Phillips and Assistant Coach Carly Reid made life interesting after winning out on days 1 and 2 only to drop and tie a game on day 3.  Team Burn watched and waited as two other teams competed to decided who the pool champion would be.  Their patience would be rewarded with a GOLD MEDAL and a Pool Championship
