Timberline goes 5-0 to take home tourney

Junior girls' volleyball squad didn't drop a set on their way to victory

The Timberline Junior girls volleyball team dominated their home tournament on the weekend, taking home the championship without dropping a single set.

In round robin pool play the Wolves defeated Highland out of Comox 25-12, 25-13, DW Poppy from Langley 25-3,25-10 and Claremont from Victoria 25-7, 25-13.

Winning the pool gave the Wolves a bye into the semi-final, where they faced Nanaimo District Secondary.

The Wolves were on fire, playing with emotion and aggressiveness, beating Nanaimo 25-12, 25-12, putting them through to the final against Carihi.

“We were excited to play Carihi as the girls are all friends and play club together. It was a great match with a lot of fan support. It was back and forth with long rallies and a really high calibre of ball for this level.

“We ended up on the winning side of things but it could have gone either way,” said coach Terry Philip after the tournament.

Timberline came away with another straight-set win, 25-23, 25-22.

“I think people wanted a 3rd set as it was so entertaining to watch. Before and after the final, the Tyees and the Wolves all did a dance together on the court.

“It was great to see these girls playing the game they love and celebrating together,” Philip said.
