2019 Gov. Thomas Burke Tournament Recap

Jun. 24, 2019

Fresh from a tournament victory in Greenville, we were eager to jump back into some competitive hurling. We spent the 4 weeks in between tournaments further developing our skills and endurance, playing Stick-Toss games without any substitutions and introducing cardio-focused Overtime Sessions. When the tournament schedule was announced, we were excited to see our old rivals, and 2018 Junior C National Champions, Coastal Virginia (formerly Hampton Roads), hoping for an opportunity to play for the first time since they won the Holy City Cup in 2017. We were also expecting Raleigh to be a much more difficult match-up playing on their home fields than when we met at Greenville. While we managed to put together one of the strongest travel teams that we have fielded in recent years, this would be our first 13s tournament on a nearly full sized pitch. With only 3 extra players, we knew that we were leaving ourselves vulnerable in the event of an injury or exhaustion.

May. 19, 2019

After months of practice and Pub League games, Charleston Hurling finally made its tournament debut for 2019. Most of the travel team made the early drive to Greenville the day of, with everyone showing up on time and ready to play. Even during the early warm-ups led by Coach Dagg, we could tell that the heat was going to play a major role in the games ahead. We also knew that we were in for a lot of running, as we would be playing on a field significantly larger than Maple. However, with such a huge and talented squad, we knew that if we managed our substitutions right, we could walk away as champions.
