Volleyball finishes at Clearwater Secondary

There were only three Senior Boys Single A teams in the Okanagans this season

The volleyball teams at Clearwater Secondary School had a busy season this fall, according to athletic director Marie Giesbrecht.

The Senior Boys played in the Okanagan Finals on Thursday. There were only three Senior Boys Single A teams in the Okanagans this season: Chase, Clearwater, and Vernon Christian. The local squad ended the tournament in second place behind Vernon Christian.

“The boys started slowly but ended up playing well against Vernon Christian,” Giesbrecht said. She was the team’s coach.

She noted that two of the better players, Chad Bond and Jairus Bromley, are graduating this year.

The Senior Girls hosted the first round of playoffs on Tuesday, Nov. 5. If they won, the girls were to head to the finals at St. Ann’s in Kamloops on Friday.

The Senior Girls took third place in their league before playoffs.

The team is still relatively young, with mainly Grade 9, 10 and 11s making up the squad. Coach is Jaime Loader.

The Junior Boys earned the right to host their playoffs. Unfortunately, they lost to St. Ann’s and didn’t move on.

Tracy Buck coached the Junior Boys.

The Junior Girls had an excellent season, coached by Donald Ritchie, a recent CSS graduate (Giesbrecht said it was good to see him return and give something back to the program).

A fairly young squad consisting of Grade 8 and Grade 9 students, they made steady progress throughout the season. They finished in fifth place in their league in the final playoffs.

 

Basketball practices began this week. Anyone interested in coaching should give her a call at the school, Giesbrecht said.
