U17 Volleyball

The Sunshine Coast Volleyball Club’s U17 team won the inaugural Volleyball BC Super Spike tournament in Langley.

The 32-team tournament featured club teams from across B.C. The first day the team managed to go 3-0 in round robin play, defeating a team from Kelowna and two teams from Vancouver.

The playoffs started early Sunday morning, with the Sunshine Coast team squeaking by a very tough team from Vernon. They then soundly defeated a club from Kamloops, setting up a semi-final with the Coqutilam Ducks.

The U17 Girls team dominated the first set, and then played a patient set, eventually winning in two sets. In the final, the girls faced an energetic team from Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo. 

The team had to mount a comeback in the first set, being down 22-19 and eventually pulling out 25-23. The team demonstrated a balanced attack, along with some great defence to win the second set, and the tournament, with a 7-0 record without losing a set.

The team will now compete in the AA tier of U17, with the next tournament at SFU in Burnaby, then another Volleyball BC event in Victoria. The season wraps up with the Provincial Championship in Richmond in mid-April.
