The KaPow Germany and KaPow China field hockey teams both won gold medals at the National Indoor Tournament (NIT).
Led by coaches Kim Barbacci and Lunda Comiskey, each team had to fight to the bitter end of each 25-minute game to earn the coveted gold medal.
In order to reach the NIT, each team had to finish in the top four teams at its qualifier tournament.
KaPow entered two Under-19 teams, two Under-16 teams and one Under-14 team qualify and represent KaPow at the NIT, the most teams from one field hockey club in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Besides winning gold in both the U19 Division and U16 Division, the club also marked a second-place finish with KaPow Netherlands, a fourth place with KaPow USA and fifth place with KaPow New Zealand.
