The North Island champion Isfeld Ice senior boys volleyball team (left to right): Top row - coach Wayne Della Siega

Isfeld Ice win North Island senior boys volleyball championship

Mark R. Isfeld Ice went undefeated to claim the senior boys volleyball North Island championship this past weekend in front of a great home crowd.

The hosts had to play on both the Friday and the Saturday against some tough competition. “The team was really excited to play in front of our hometown crowd and responded well to the pressure”, coach Wayne Della Siega said.

The Ice were in top form Friday, defeating Carihi, Highland and Timberline. On Saturday morning they continued their dominance of the court, knocking off Ballenas and Gulf Islands to advance to the finals against Woodlands.

Woodlands has been ranked in the top teams of the province and Isfeld has given them a good run in the past. “We knew it was going to be a battle but we were ready,” Della Siega said, adding, “It’s our tournament to win or lose but the way we have been improving and playing, failure will NOT be an option!”

This prediction held as the Ice came out ready to play, shut Woodlands down all over the court, had a strong defensive game, and when given the opportunity, put the ball away with vigour.

 

The team finished the tournament undefeated and now plan on doing the same on Nov. 20-21 in Royal Bay at the Islands.
