It appears that sports at Clearwater Secondary School got underway quickly after the late start to school, according to a report from athletic director Marie Giesbrecht.

In volleyball, the Senior Girls travelled to Kamloops Christian School on Tuesday of last week, where they defeated KCS and Barriere.

The Junior Boys travelled to a five-team event in Sahali. They lost all their matches, but showed continuous improvement.

On the same Tuesday, the Junior Girls won their game against Logan Lake and one other team.

On Thursday, the Grade 8 Girls hosted South Kamloops and Sahali. They lost their matches against the much larger schools, but forced the match against Sahali to go to three.

The Senior Boys are the only Single A team in the West Zones. All the rest are much larger Double AA schools.

They hosted a play-day on Oct. 15 but it was for exhibition only.

The Senior Boys will host a five-team Single A Okanagan tournament on Nov. 7 and 8.

Upcoming volleyball home play-days include Oct. 27, when the Junior Girls will host, and Nov. 13, when the Grade 8 Girls will host.

 

In soccer, the Boys team qualified in second place for the Okanagans, which will be played Oct. 23 and 24 in Kelowna.
