After successfully defending their North Island title

Isfeld Ice repeat as AA North Island senior boys volleyball champions

Courtenay team hosting Island championships Nov. 18-19

The Mark R. Isfeld Ice senior boys volleyball team captured the AA North Island Championship this past weekend on Salt Spring Island.

The Ice faced Highland in their first match and won in a commanding fashion, two sets straight. Net play was dominated by Ben Swing and Jason Watt while Joe Lineger served with very few returns.

Isfeld continued to dominate their opponents, not dropping a set against Ballenas, Wellington, and Gulf Islands en route to winning the North Island title for a second year in a row.

This Friday and Saturday the Ice are hosting the Island Championships. They Ice kick off the tournament at 12 p.m. as they face Ballenas, then take on Royal Bay at 3 p.m. and Lambrick Park at 6 p.m.

“This weekend will prove to be some great volleyball in the Comox Valley so come out and support your local teams,” an Ice spokesperson said.

The top three teams at day’s end on Saturday will move on to the Nov. 30-Dec. 3 Provincial Championships in Langley.
