Hannah Hage and Makenna McCann beat the team of Cheong/Crifo to win gold in the 14U division at the recent Youth Beach Nationals in Toronto. "The gold medal match was a very tough match as we met the provincial gold medal team in the finals." said McCann who trains at On Point Athletics Beach Volleyball in Windsor with Hage.


Hannah and Makenna intertionally played in a few Toronto OVA tournaments earlier this season to gain experience for moments like this. "The competition was so tough and we played alongside some really amazing beach athletes who wanted a top spot as much as we did. We played some solid volleyball and it was so good." McCann said.

The girls battled through a tough first set before pulling out a 23-21 win. "That helped give us the momentum we needed to win the second set." said Hage as they went on to win the second set 21-11.


Hannah and Makenna both enter grade nine in September. Hanna is heading to Holy Names while Makenna becomes a Wildcat at Villanova. Both play indoor with South County Volleyball and hope to represent their high school's on the court as well.


"I felt super proud of Hannah and I, but I also felt very proud to be representing Windsor/Essex County and On Point on that podium. Honestly, winning a national championship makes me want to push hard and see what else lies ahead for us." said Mc Cann.
