Poison Ivy – The Best Female Paintball Team in the World

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

European Masters 2013

Poison Ivy is having a phenomenal season in the Millennium Series, one of the most competitive series in the world..  Coming off a 2nd place podium appearance at the most recent event, Bitburg, the best female paintball team in the world reflects on being so close to gold… they could taste it.  In the mean time, beer will do.

Only a month after the Mediterranean Cup we were eager and ready for the next Millennium in Bitburg, Germany. After a 6th place we felt that we had proven to ourselves that we can reach our goal continuing the hard work and dedication within the team. So that’s exactly what we continued doing.

In addition to paintball most of the girls on the team are students, and May is the busiest month with final exams coming up. However, that doesn’t stop us. In preparing for the European Masters in Bitburg we got in several reball practices, and one NPL event (Norwegian Paintball League) and one outdoor paintball practice, so we felt well prepared.

We all agreed that the nations cup was going to be mostly for fun, and that our focus should stay with our team (Poison Ivy) and our common goal to reach the top.

Finally we arrived in Germany with high confidence that this is our tournament.

Our first meeting with Germany was the bad weather and the rain pouring down; it was raining so bad that we had difficulty seeing the road in front of us. But when we arrived in Bitburg, the sun came out as ordered. Thursday consisted of registration, scheduling, field-walk, dinner, and making game plans.

Friday: The first thing we had to do this morning was to get in the car and pick up our last player Benedicte at the airport. She had her final exam on Thursday, but that did not prevent her from attending the tournament anyway. The pickup went smooth and of to the field we went.

First game was at 2:10 pm against Scalp ME Saulx les Chartreux 3, and in good Poison Ivy tradition we lost 0-3..which was pretty annoying. Next up was at 3:30 pm against another all-female team, Paris Camp Lady Carnage, we won that game 4-0 and felt that we were back on track. The day as Poison Ivy finished with one win and one lose. The five norwegian girls on the team played three more games that day as the Norwegian national team. They finished up pretty late, so all we had time for was a “quick” dinner and then straight to bed.

Saturday: One more game in the preliminaries at 10 am against Nancy Armada. We won 4-1 which placed us as #1 in our group, and moved us on to the important Sunday club.

The Norwegian national team also played two more games this day, and ended up winning the whole thing, and became European Champions 2013! The girls were on fire

Sunday club: Once again we managed the first step in to the tournament, now the real fun was about to start. First up this rain full day was the last-16 game against Orphans Dolgoprudny. Won 4-2 and made it to the quarter finals. By winning this game we had to play the next game against our friends and fellow Norwegians; Rebels Borgerskogen, who we consider to be a really good team. We knew that this game was not going to be easy, and only one of us could make it to the semi-finals.. We surprised ourselves (and others..) by winning convincingly 3-1. And for the first time in the history of Poison Ivy we had actually made it past the evil quarter finals at the Millennium and moved on to the semi finals!!! In the semi’s we met Lucky 15s Staffordshire, which proved to be a difficult match where we went on to overtime.. It ended with another win for us, 3-2. This meant FINALS!

The final we lost against a really good team Durham DV8 0-4. It was no doubt who deserved that first place. They proved better than us. Congratulations to Durham DV8 for taking 1st place! You guys deserved it!

When looking back at the tournament and our performance we are SO proud of how far we have come this year. Nothing is better than getting results when you work as hard as we have done this year. Because of the 6th place in France and now the 2nd place in Bitburg we are currently ranked 2nd in the overall ranking of 2013 at the Millennium :)

Second place is good, but for us nothing is good enough before we reach all the way to the top. So London watch out! Poison Ivy is hungry for revenge ;-)

Team Poison Ivy – Mediterrannean Cup 2013

Friday, May 24th, 2013

Poison Ivy is currently out in Bitburg, Germany representing Female paintballers all around the world in the Millennium Series.  Here are the teams thoughts after event #1 -

photo credit: RSH Media

“After what seemed to be an everlasting off-season we finally set aim for the French Riviera and the first millennium-event of 2013. And this time we actually had 6 Ivy girls with us; Silje, Linn, Pia, Linda, Cecilia and Benedicte.

After a pre-start of the season in Russia one month ago which was a good test for the team, we felt pumped and ready for the season to really kick off. We are confident beacuse we have put in a lot of hours of paintball practice during the off-season. Because we live where we do we hadn’t had any opportunity to actually play on the whole field before the event, so we were pretty excited for our training session on Thursday evening.

We arrived in Nice and managed pretty quickly to pack the girls and all our bags into the car. Then we asked a very nice young man at the car rental-service to help us with the GPS, “No problem” said the young fellow, but what he forgot to mention was that he so kindly decided to save us some money and sent us out on a route that avoided the toll roads. This probably doesn’t sound too bad, but the drive which should have taken us 40 minutes ended up taking over 2 hours and we actually had to stop and get something to eat.. Just sayin..

When we finally found the little town we were staying in, and found our awesome 4 star hotel, we got so excited that we each had our own bathrobes that we immediately put them on.. Haha.. We’re not really used to fancy stuff on paintball-trips….lol.. Then we set out to find the site which was easier said than done, but Britt helped us almost all the way there, and we made it just in time for our training session. Oh, by the way, we forgot to introduce you to Britt. Our friendly GPS.

Can’t say it was a great practice for us and it didn’t boost our confidence, but we got to play on the field and figured out what didn’t work, and what might work.

Moving on to the event..

During Thursday we got our schedule and found out that we were meeting another girls team, our socalled “rivals” Fat Ladies Charms.

It was pretty awesome when we started the preliminaries against them and lost 4-0…. (Congrats boys and girls. Well played!).To sum it up: they played good, and we didn’t.

After that game we sat down and talked about the game, changed some stuff and decided to start over. We focused on the next task at hand, our next game against Marseille Icon 2. Everyone who has played the Millennium-series for a few years knows of that name, and we knew we were up against a good team. But apparently the talk we had after our first game worked and we ended up winning 3-1.

Last game in the prelims was against Kingsize Berlin and we won that game 3-0.

BUT even though we had two wins we couldn’t celebrate just yet, because 3 teams in our group had 2 wins! And we placed as number 3 in our group!

After a couple of agenizing hours our awesome coach Magued brought the good news that we were the last team to make it through to the Sunday club!!! LUCKYLOOSERS FTW!

SUNDAYCLUB,

We were really excited, not just because we made it to Sunday, but because all the Norwegian teams made it to Sunday!

Our game in the last 16 was against the Russian team Tyumen Spectrand, they gave us a good fight, but we finally won 3-2.

Just the fact that we won this game shows the change in our team, as we have had a huge problem with being able to handle the “pressure” of the Sunday earlier.

Next we met the French team Elite Ile d Oleronand lost 3-0… Guess this is where the pressure got to us! What made the loss a bit better was that Elite went on to take 1st. Congrats guys!

As for us, we ended up placing 6th out of 27 teams, and we were and still are very proud of our performance and we are happy with that result! For now. Let’s just say it’s a good start..

Looking back at the event we see a definite change in the team from previous years.. the way we think, how united we are as a team and as friends, and of how we act as a team. We’re still the same old Poison Ivy, just a new and improved version.

We set some goals together this year that we are certain we will reach if we stay on the same path that we are on now. Next up is even more practice, and not only with reballs, but also with paintball. The outdoor training is about to kick off here in Norway.

Our amazing sponsors:

DYE paintball for our awesome gear, including Dye Reflex Markers, i4 Goggle Systems, Dye ROTOR Loaders and the Dye CG paint.

RSHmedia for the best media coverage in the world of paintball, claim the world.

Our home field, Sniperpaintball in Drammen, for letting us use their awesome indoor reball center (almost) whenever we want. Last but not least Rockstar energydrink!

Without you we wouldn’t be where we are today!

A huge shout out to our coach Magued, thank you for putting up with our drama and pointing us in the right direction. Thanks to Knut for being our coach in the pit during the weekend.

Stio and Fredrik from Drammen Solid, thanks for helping us with our practices during the off-season, you guys are the best. And thanks to everyone else who helped us out during the off-season, or in the pit in France, you know who you are and we love you <3 Last but not least, thanks to all of you that belive in us and supports us. We love you to <3

Until next time…”

All-Female Team Poison Ivy to Play Division 1 at World Cup Asia 2012

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

For the last 7 years, Team Poison Ivy has been gracing the paintball community with an attractive (and deadly) female roster, ready and willing to compete against any opponents that get put in front of them.  In 2012, Poison Ivy has made a few key pick ups that are going to help them compete against the worlds best at the 2012 World Cup Asia, including Karoline Seheim, Linda Graue, and their newest roster addition/coach Christopher Rønneberg from Drammen Solid.

“It is fun to see that in the last few years, the amount of females playing paintball is growing rapidly” mentions team co-founder Linn Andersen.  ”We attended WCA in 2011 and are excited to be back to the beautiful island of Langkawi and to experience what the organizers say will be even better then the last year. We didn’t think it would be possible to top last year’s event, but we’re sure that if anybody can do it, it’s the WCA organizers.”

What makes these girls different?  They know how to win.  ”We play smart, have very technically good players on the team, and have a good team spirit. All that and more are going to help us go all the way to the top during WCA.”

The 2012 Poison Ivy Roster:

Benedicte Rønneberg (Captain)

Linda Graue

Silje Eriksen

Linn Askevold

Guest players:

Freddie Brockdorff and Cecilia Rickardsson, our friends from FLCharms.

And last, but not least: our coach, and co-player this time, Christopher Rønneberg from Drammen Solid
