Carihi’s Sophia Johnson attacks the net during the team’s match against Timberline Nov. 14. Both teams are heading to provincials.

Carihi and Timberline off to junior provincials

Carihi Junior Girls are on their way to Provincials this weekend.

Carihi qualified for the Islands by placing first at the North Island championships held at Timberline Nov. 13-14, defeating the host TImberline Wolves.

The Islands were held Nov 20-21 at Brentwood College in Mill Bay.  Carihi completed the round robin undefeated on Friday. Then on Saturday the girls played Gulf Islands and won easily.

The second game had Carihi vs Timberline yet again. The competition with these two teams never disappoints, as this game drew the largest crowd of the tournament and was no sleeper. Timberline won the first set quite handily, the second set was close going to 26-24 in Carihi’s favor and the third set was close but in the end won by Carihi.

Carihi moved on to the finals and put on a good fight against a dominant team from Belmont in Victoria but came up short to place second in the tournament

Campbell River was well represented by both Timberline and Carihi coming in placing in two of the top three spots of 50 schools on the Island

This is one of the few times in Carihi’s 50 years that a Junior Volleyball team has earned a berth in Provincials. Both teams move on to Provincials which are being held in Delta this weekend.
