After a 2 hour flight to Atlanta, Georgia, 16 Red enjoyed the morning to themselves at the Centennial Olympic Park before heading to the Big South Qualifier. When it came to playing, there were high and low points that the team strove to stabilize and use to overcome mistakes. By the end of the third day of the tournament, the team was able to work together and put in full effort to build on each other's motivation and success in playing their part of the game. They went to the zoo, ate dinner, and formed a closer relationship than before, with laughter on the buses to and from the hotel they stayed at. They learned to play as a stronger team than they did first walking into the convention center. The last games of the tournament were the most successful, and they were able to come in first in their flight.
