In the next two weeks, the 2022 Junior A Girls Volleyball season will come to a close. With grit and positivity, the team persevered through any challenges they faced. The team has faced long playdays, and many games were finished in the third set.

Throughout the season, the team has improved significantly through the connection between the players and their skillset. Ms April Barnes, Hope ‘16 and Coach observed, “From where we started in the season to where we are now I've seen vast improvements not only in the teamwork dynamics but also in each player individually.” After each game, the team improved a little bit more, eyeing down Provincials. “At the beginning of the season we started strong with a Silver medal at the Vancouver Island University (VIU) Tournament but since then the team has come together and everyone has excelled in their positions” stated team Co-Captian Stella P, Alex ‘25.

The remainder of the season holds great excitement as the team heads to provincials as the reigning Island Champions. A team must place in the top four at the Islands to qualify for the Provincials. The team was thrilled after winning their semi-final match sending them to Provincials. After a long head-to-head game in the Gold final against Ballenas, we erupted in joy. We were even more excited to discover that a Brentwood team had not won this tournament since 2005. “ I think our highlight was winning the Island Championship because that has not been done since 2005. We should be very proud of that, and I am very excited to see what is to come”  concluded Ms Barnes.

The Junior A Volleyball team has developed into a strong team and will continue to impress their supporters at the Provincial Championships held at the end of November. The team has made many in the Brentwood community proud. Their improvement and teamwork on and off the court contributed to the amazing dynamic of this team. The team will play some of their toughest matches at Provincials but continue to persevere: with that, the 2022 volleyball season will come to an end.
