Canada sixth in Mexico

Roberts Creek’s Kyla Richey and her Team Canada mates came home with a sixth place finish from the recent XIII Women’s Volleyball Pan American Cup at Juan de la Barrera Mexico.

Cuba outplayed Canada 3-1 (26-24, 23-25, 25-21, 25-15) to claim the fifth place in Canada’s final match.

Richey was the best for Canada with 18 points, including two blocks and three aces.

“I wanted to test some of the players who had not seen a lot of playing time,” Canada’s Coach Arnd Ludwig said. “We stayed in the game for the first three sets, but then they looked a little bit tired. We have work to do since this is the start of the season.”


The Sunshine Coast Rapids bantam lacrosse team have their eyes on the provincial prize.

After defeating the Delta Islanders last weekend 12-2 and 6-0 to win their best-of-three playoff series, the Rapids now take their 18-0 record to the provincial championships July 10 to 13 in Victoria.

Both the peewee and midget teams are also pursuing banners in the coming weeks.
