Senior A Volleyball
This past weekend, the Senior A Volleyball team participated in the annual Vancouver Island University Invitational Tournament in Nanaimo. On Friday afternoon we played our first match against GW Graham from Chilliwack, followed by a game with Reynolds from Victoria and St. Thomas Aquinas from Vancouver. We finished off the night with a fourth consecutive win over Nanaimo Christian School. After a day of four games in a row, our tired team headed back to school for the night to rest up for a full day of playoff games on Saturday.
The morning was an early start with a match against very well, Dover Bay. We had beaten this team before, but unfortunately could not grasp the win that morning: we lost a very close one. After losing such a tight game to Dover, our team was craving a win, especially when we found out our second contest of the day was against our rival school, Shawnigan. As we won that game with flying colors, we were now playing for 6th and 7th place.
For our final game of the day, we played NDSS who, just like Dover Bay, are a challenging team. After two close sets, we came out winning both and placing 6th out of 35 teams at the 2016 VIU Invitational. As our team is still getting used to playing with each other, we are so excited to see our improvement throughout the season and are looking forward to hosting next weekend’s Brentwood Classic Volleyball Tournament at the Woodward Sportsplex.
