Carihi’s senior girls volleyball team caught the eyes of a crowd member while competing in the Red Serge Volleyball Tournament at Riverside secondary in Port Coquitlam.

“The tournament is regarded as the premiere senior girls volleyball tournament in the province, featuring the majority of the top ranked teams in B.C.,” said coach Dave Stover in an email.

This is the second time in 18 years a Campbell River team was invited to the tournament. This year it took place on Nov. 3 and 4.

“We finished fourth, which is an outstanding result,” said Stover.

After the tournament, on Nov. 6, an email was sent to Carihi principal Fred Schaub from a woman who was watching her niece play on an opposing team to express her thoughts on Carihi’s senior girls.

“For somebody to actually write a positive email, [we] must have made a real impression on her,” said Schaub.

The woman mentioned that she has not seen a bench run so effectively, complementing the coaching staff for playing every girl.

She also added that every girl was invested in the game’s outcome and they all worked as a team to gain points, and then ultimately a win.

Positive correspondence is received by Schaub every now and again, and usually comes from unique places and people who have been wowed by what he calls “Cari-ambassadors.”

“We do get [emails] once and awhile. We get phone calls too,” said Schaub.

Soon after receiving the email, he forwarded it to all Carihi staff members, including the coaches.

“Mr. Schaub sent me the email and I felt happy for our girls that someone noticed and took the time to recognize their character, quality of play and sportsmanship,” said Stover.

There are 11 players on the senior girls volleyball team including six Grade 12s, four Grade 11s, and one Grade 9.

“The core of this team has been together since Phoenix middle school Grade 8,” said Stover. “When they arrived at Carihi as Grade 9 students, they made a commitment to make girls volleyball relevant at Carihi. They were motivated to create a buzz around volleyball and inspire the younger incoming students who followed.”
