Senior Girls win West Zone title

Raiders beat St. Ann's in final game in Kamloops for West Zone crown

A headline in last week’s Times that the volleyball season at Clearwater Secondary School was finished was premature, according to athletic director Marie Giesbrecht.

As reported in last week’s issue, the Senior Girls hosted the first round of playoffs on Tuesday, Nov. 5. There they defeated Logan Lake and Ashcroft.

That qualified them for the finals in Kamloops on Friday, Nov. 8. At the finals the girls faced Chase in the first round and were down 17 – 8. They came back and won that game 25 – 23. They then beat Chase in the next set to win in two.

In the final match against arch-rival St. Ann’s the Senior Raider Girls lost the first set 25 – 23, but won the next two to win the West Zone title.

This win qualified them for the Okanagan finals, which were played at Immaculata High School in Kelowna on Nov. 15.

At the Okanagans the girls started with two tough matches against Immaculata and Vernon Christian School, losing both. They then beat Barriere, which left them third in their pool in the round robin.

In the playoffs they played a good match against A.L. Fortune Secondary School of Enderby but lost in three.

This eliminated the Senior Girls from the Okanagan, leaving them in about fifth place.


Volleyball is now definitely over, Giesbrecht said, but basketball is about to begin.
