Good job on getting 2nd place, but the competition must not have been very tough in Dacono, CL because down here in Florida, even at D5 if you sat in the back like that you would get steamrolled. You didn't have an angle on anyone and nobody was shooting at you, which means you aren't in the game and you might as well put your gun up and walk off the field. You need to push up, paintball is all about territory, you want to keep the pressure on the other team, because one day you're going to meet a team who knows this and it will be a 2v3 because you aren't being an asset.
Also, you don't have to swing your gun around to check the side of a bunker. If you're posted on someone keep your gun on that side and just poke your head out of the other side occasionally to make sure there is nobody on that side.
Another tip is learning to wrap a bunker, which means if someone is on your right side, you come out the left, then wrap your body around the bunker, a lot of times you will take a guy by surprise.
I never heard a bit of communication. You need to talk with your teammates, and when I say communication I don't mean yelling out positions, really talk with the person, find out what he knows, if he can move, if he can keep a player down so you can move, keep the communication flowing.
It's not about kills, even if you can just get up far enough to make them nervous enough to keep a gun trained on you so tight all you can do is hug the bunker, it takes a gun off your teammate, then you can tell your teammate that the guy shooting at you is occupied and that he has a window to move up the other side. A paintball team is a machine, if all the gears are moving in sync it can do great things, but if those cogs aren't lined up then you're going nowhere.
One more thing, you really haven't got a gun that can be putting down a lane, so instead of trying to shoot off the break, put the gun at your side and sprint as fast as you can as far up as you can.
