The Junior Volleyball Team played in their first tournament at the end of September. Here is the play by play from Coach Lisa: The first match was against the home team Seaquam Seahawks where the girls worked through a few nerves to split the match. Yasmin and Erin led the team with composure and consistency. Whiterock Christian Academy was next and Lauren played extremely well on both defense and offense digging some great balls and setting her hitters up for kills! The final round robin match was against a stronger North Surrey opponent where we were down but Gabriella played amazingly well with serve after serve! We lost the set but won the split! The net play of Louise was instrumental throughout the tournament to boost the team every time she was in the front row! After playing three well fought matches the girls were in a three way tie for second and our point ratio solidified second place! Both liberos, Ishira and Fraser, stepped up switching in and out and doing a fantastic defensive job. The team lost their playoff match to a stronger McRobert’s team from Richmond but still played well through the entire weekend. Erin had a terrific weekend with offensive points recorded with serving, blocking and attacking. Way to go Erin!
Jr. Volleyball Coach
The team played their first complete (from a skills/mental perspective) match of the season the afternoon of October 2nd and were rewarded with a 3-0 victory over Crofton. It was an impressive performance. Be sure to congratulate the girls when you see them around – they deserve it! The weekend of September 28/29 the team played in a tournament on the Island. They lost an extremely close game to a strong Timberline (AAA) team. They went on to win a decisive bronze medal game against Elgin Park. Siobhan and Tanis both received all-stars. We have home games in Monday and Tuesday this week (4pm start) against St. Pats and Notre Dame, so come on out and cheer them on!
The Swim Team is heading to the ISA tournament on Tuesday, and our Grade 8 Volleyball team plays Notre Dame on Thursday. Field Hockey goes up against Crofton House this week. The Juniors play on Tuesday, and the Seniors play on Wednesday.
What a busy week in sports!
