The lovely Miss Hoel was amongst the six players representing Bergen, but they came short: Only seven victories out of 25. - However, we're happy to announce she won the unofficial prize "Photo of the day" (You all should have seen the photo of Charlotte...) and "Best style". Just look at her, come on, got to love this young lady:

No matter Charlotte and Eli are pretty ecstatic at the moment: Summer Vacation 2018, hurry up! Hopefully we will both be in the club team, and if not: We can always travel as cheer leaders.
Nevertheless, if she makes it through the selection, this will be the first EuroCup for Charlotte. Eli has played twice, first time in 2014 (Taggia, Italy) and second time in 2016 (Esch, Luxembourg). She knows very well travelling aboard with other club members, participating in the EuroCup, is an amazing experience no one will ever forget.
The draw is in April, and the EuroCup will be organized in four groups, arranged i July by the clubs reaching the semifinals in this years EuroCup (Finals in December). Maybe we'll go to Dragunian, France...? Come what may!
