Clearwater students get involved in athletics

Over 1/4 of the students at Clearwater Secondary School have been involved in athletics this fall

Clearwater Secondary School Grade 8 Girls volleyball player #7 Cassidy Redman tips the ball over the net during a playday at the school on Oct. 29. The local squad won one set against all three opponents during the session and impressed many with their potential.

Over 1/4 of the students at Clearwater Secondary School have been involved in athletics this fall, according to athletic director Marie Giesbrecht.

“That doesn’t include scorekeepers, lines-people and so on,” she said.

In contrast to some previous years, when the school found it difficult to find enough students to fill its teams, this fall CSS had male and female senior and junior volleyball teams, plus a girls Grade 8 volleyball team. Only the Grade 8 boys fell somewhat short of the numbers needed and those interested played with the Junior Boys volleyball team.

The strong interest was mirrored by strong results.

The Senior Boys won the West Zone championships after defeating Chase on Nov. 1. The win means the boys will host the Okanagan Championships on Nov. 16/17. Teams expected include Chase, Vernon Christian and Kelowna Christian (the number one ranked team in the province. “They’re really really good,” said Giesbrecht).

On Monday the Senior Girls were to take part in playoffs in Barriere, the Junior Boys were at playoffs at South Kamloops, and the Grade 8 Girls were in Westsyde for their playoffs. The Junior Girls finished their season earlier. Look for results in a later issue of the Times.

 

The strong volleyball results followed on impressive showing by the CSS soccer team. As reported previously in the Times, the team went undefeated in league play, won the West Zones, and gave a strong showing at the Okanagans.
