The 17U Girls team competed in the AVA Provincials in Edmonton on April 28th and 29th. After a slow start to the season, the team came into the tournament as 7th seed Div 2, having clawed their way several positions up the standings in every tournament. The girls played their best volleyball of the year over the weekend. They won 2 of 3 matches in their pool, and won the crossover game handily. They met the number one seed in the quarter finals and lost 15-13 in the third game. They easily won their final match and finished 5th, once again moving up the ladder. The value of strong coaching from Barry, Janelle and Lesley was clearly evident through the steady improvement that the girls have demonstrated through the AVA tournaments this year. They look they are going to peak when it matters the most – at Nationals in Toronto. Great job girls!
