The volleyball season is winding down at Clearwater Secondary School but, as of press-time earlier this week, two of the teams were still hanging in there.

Last weekend the senior Raider girls hosted and won the West Zones, defeating Barriere 2-1 in the championship game.

“It was a great team effort with everyone contributing to the win,” said coach Marie Giesbrecht.

The girls now advance to the Okanagans, to be hosted in Princeton on Nov. 20/21.

On Monday, Nov. 9, the senior Raider boys hosted Kamloops Christian School in the West Zones and beat them in four sets.

This past weekend the senior boys competed in the Okanagans at Kelowna Christian School and placed fourth. The boys were coached by Mike Lau.

Junior girls played at South Kamloops Secondary School on the weekend and finished in fifth place. The girls improved a lot over the season. Coaches were Robin Fraser and Deanna Pendergast.

Connor servesGrade 8 girls were to play in the first round of playoffs on Tuesday at SKSS. Look for results in a future issue of the Times or online.

CSS had no junior boys or Grade 8 boys volleyball teams this season. Instead, several of the younger players competed with the senior boys team.
