Ice girls play well at Islands

Isfeld places fifth at volleyball championships in Victoria

The Mark Isfeld Ice senior girls volleyball team raised their game over the weekend and placed fifth at the Vancouver Island championships.

Friday night’s games saw the team take two games out of Claremont with ease as they came out ready to play. The team played very stongly against Ballenas, the top-ranked team on the Island, but were only able to take 19 and 18 points out of them in the two-game match. Keziah Magor added an ace serve and a kill in one game while Jessica McLean and Sam Regehr served very well to add points for the team.

The game against Carihi of Campbell River saw the small team of eight take control in game one with a win of 25-18. The Ice continued their aggressive play in game two, but the late stages of the second game saw a shift for Carihi.

Isfeld nearly closed the deal as they played right to the wire with a 26-24 win for Carihi. Strong performances from setter Shelby Jeeves, powers Thana and Shimen Fayad really gave the team an edge. Closing the evening off with a quick two-game match against host Parkland, solid performances were turned in by Hayley Teunissen and Adriana Rosendo to bring some spark to the team’s final attack of the day.

After four matches, the team had moved up one spot in the rankings for pool play, serving notice they were ready to challenge for a spot at Provincials.

Saturday morning the Ice were up against Timberline from Campbell River. Isfeld struggled to find a rhythm throughout the match and were unable to get a big point run going for the duration of the two-game match. This loss determined the final game for the Ice, who played Frances Kelsey for fifth place.

With a noticeable lack of the previous day’s fire, the team managed to pull out the win despite not playing their best, showing this young team has plenty to be proud of as they mark their season’s end.  “Great job ladies and many thanks to coach Jahmil Fayad,” a team spokesperson said.
