Isfeld hosting junior girls volleyball tournament

12-team event will be held at both Isfeld and Highland gyms

Mark R. Isfeld Secondary is hosting a large tournament this week, so large that they are partnering with Highland Secondary to put it on.

Twelve teams from five different school districts will be at the two schools to compete in the Ice Junior Girls Volleyball Tournament.

Pools A and B will be at Isfeld on Friday and includes such teams as Vanier, Carihi, NDSS, Brentwood and others.  Pool C will be hosted by Highland and includes Timberline, Dover Bay and Kwalikum.

On Saturday, Isfeld will host the Gold Tier, featuring the top six teams of the tournament.  Highland will host the Silver Tier, allowing all 12 teams another four matches against appropriate competition.

Both tiers offer hardware for first, second and third place, so the players will be putting forth their best effort.  Expect close matches and a few upsets.

This mid-season tournament is warm-up for the North Islands, which Isfeld will host on Nov. 11-12.
