Heading into Northwest Challenge, Virginia Hydra had mixed results, with wins against upper regionals teams but losses to most nationals quality squads they had faced. An opening loss in the first round continued that trend for Hydra, as they line up against elite #4 UC San Diego DCo to cap off pool play. DCo boasts everything you'd want out of a top tier team - an elite handler (Ava Hanna), an elite playmaking rookie (Abigail Shilts), and a depth of experience from recent nationals experiences.
