The Campbell River Christian School senior girls volleyball team are currently ranked tenth in the province for Single A schools. The team is having a great year, and hope to return to Provincials like last year.
Last weekend, the team placed seventh out of 16 teams at the Mark Isfeld/Vanier Tourney, the best ever result for the school at that tournament. Christian School defeated Wellington 25-20 and 25-20, then beat Chemainus 25-15 and 25-6. Christian school followed up those performances by stealing a set from Vanier (a first ever for the school) and therefore finished second in the pool. Christian School moved onto the gold tier (another first for the school at the tournament) against Vanier and lost 25-10, won 27-25, and then lost 15-1.
In playoffs, the team lost to Ballenas 25-11 and 25-17 and then lost against Mark Isfeld 25-15 and 25-19 but rebounded to finish seventh overall with two wins over Highland 25-15 and 25-8.
Campbell River Christian School will also be sending 13 athletes to the X-country Island Champs in Victoria today, along with the Timberline and Carihi teams.
