Local teams shine at volleyball tourney

Vanier, Isfeld and Highland place in top eight at two-day event

All three local teams finished in the top half of the standings at the 16-team Vanier-Isfeld senior girls volleyball tournament, held Oct. 19-20.

The Vanier Towhees lost to Ballenas Whalers in an entertaining three-set championship on Saturday afternoon. “That was big for our team,” said Vanier coach Dave Neill. “Actually we took the second game quite convincingly, but in the third game they pulled away. They’re probably the best team on the Island right now,” said Neill of the #7 AAA Whalers.

Brentwood finished third, Carihi (#8 AAA) fourth, Terry Fox fifth, Isfeld Ice sixth, Campbell River Christian (#10 A) seventh and Highland Raiders eighth.

 

“It was a really good outing for our team, for sure,” Neill said of the tourney. “We’re a younger team and we’re really starting to step it up. We’re off to Timberline (#10 AAA) this weekend for another really tough tournament then to White Rock the week after that.”
