First Tournament of the Season
Saturday, January 24, 2015
Over the weekend of January 25th and 26th, the Air Squids traveled north to Santa Barbara for their first regular season tournament, the Santa Barbara Invite. They got off to a strong start bright and early Saturday morning with a 13-6 win over Victoria. They went on to play a challenging game against Arizona, but managed to finish with an 11 -8 win. After a long, two round bye, the Squids faced off against their cross town rivals; San Diego State. Though there were many errors on both sides, the Squids were able to squeeze away at 12-11 victory over San Diego State’s Federales. The Air Squids were able to finish the day 4-0 after an easy 13-6 win over Northeastern. Sunday, however, brought tougher times. A slow start after a first round bye resulted in the Squids’ loss to Stanford on game point in the quarter finals. Down after the first loss of the season, the Squids had a tough time against their longtime rivals, UC Santa Barbara’s Black Tide, and lost 13-10. The Squids struggled to find their stride in their last game of the day and after a long game of trading points, the Squids lost to Tulane 12-11 in their last game of the day. Though hoping to finish with a higher ranking than eighth, the young Air Squids saw tons of promise over the weekend. They'll be ready to ink in their upcoming home tournament, Presidents Day Qualifier, the weekend of February 14th.
