Just as the Timberline senior girls were wrapping up the school’s fifth Island AAA volleball title on home court, the ladies from Campbell River Christian were in Lake Cowichan winning the Island A title.

“This is only the second time in our school’s history where a team has won an Island championship,” said head coach Kathy Andrews.

The local girls went undefeated in pool play with victories over QMS, Lake Cowichan and Port Hardy.

In the quarter-final, the Christian School Cougars defeated Nanaimo Christian and then beat Lake Cowichan, again, in the semis.

The girls continued their domination in the final with a three-set victory over Duncan Christian to claim the Island A title.

The victory qualified Campbell River Christian for the provincials which take place in Duncan Nov. 28-30.

Members of the Christian School Cougars include: Shayla Hocking, Mikayla Martens, Tianna McCay, Jenniefer Yates, Jade Coon, Carly Davis, Kaitlyn Falk, Shelby McCay, Joanna Williams, Rachelle Addison, Heather Belanger and Melinda Coetzee.
