Isfeld finishes fourth at Classic

Best-ever result for Ice senior girls volleyball team in Parksville tourney

 

 

 

The Isfeld Ice senior girls volleyball team proved they are a force to be reckoned with on the court at this past weekend’s Ballenas Fall Classic Tournament in Parksville.

The team won all three matches in Friday’s draw, putting them in contention for the Gold Tier on Saturday. In the first game Saturday, the Ice were up against Brentwood and had to work hard to take the match in three games.

In the first set Brentwood took charge 25-19. In the second set Isfeld spanked Brentwood 25-17 with the Ice running up the score to 20 very quickly and forcing Brentwood to work at not being completely wiped out.

The third set was 15-13 for Isfeld with Brentwood getting to the halfway mark of eight first, but the Ice dug down deep and took the game to get into the semifinals for the first time ever at this competition.

The whole team played to their potential with great blocking from middle Sam Regehr, strong serving from both Jessica McLean and Shelby Jeeves, along with fabulous support in both offence and defence from Keziah Magor,” a team spokesperson said.

Isfeld were next faced with a formidable Cedar Hill side, and the team was once again able to bring their best to the table. But in the third and deciding game it was not enough and they lost out two games to one, putting them into the bronze medal game against Oak Bay of Victoria.

Oak Bay prevailed, winning in two straight games, placing the Ice fourth overall at this high-calibre tournament. Ballenas took Cedar Hill in the final match to win the overall title.

In securing fourth, Isfeld placed themselves one spot higher in tournament standings and are still looking to improve on their record. This week the team will be regrouping and preparing for the North Island championships this weekend in Campbell River.
