Isfeld girls win Silver Tier title

Senior volleyball team plays well; Shimen Fayad voted to all-star team

SHIMEN FAYAD WAS named to the tournament all-star team.

 

 

 

The Isfeld Ice senior girls’ volleyball team won the Silver Tier of the Asics Island Invitational Tournament at VIU in Nanaimo this past weekend.

The relatively small team of eight are packed with young talent, including Grade 11 Shimen Fayad who was voted to the all-star team by tournament officials.  The team rallied quickly after a difficult first match in the tournament to come back strong, switching up setters for the remaining games.

A tight Saturday morning match between Carihi and the Ice went to a third and deciding game with two nail-biter scores of 25-21 for the Ice and 25-27 for Carihi. The Isfeld girls came through in the final game with a score of 15-7 to move on to the final match with Kwantlen Park of Surrey.

Isfeld took control of game one, winning 25-22, but slipped off their form in game two, losing 14-25. The third game was the charm for the Ice as they rallied their spirits and once again pulled together some great offensive attacks led by Fayad to win 15-11 and take the overall title in the Silver Tier.

Shelby Jeeves put in an excellent performance over the two-day tournament in the setter position while Thana Fayad, a Grade 9 player moving up to senior level, brought some great hits in the power position. Sam Regehr, Adriana Rosendo, Jessica McLean, Hayley Tevnissen and Keziah Magor played extremely well throughout the tournament.
