Volleyball tournament in Lake Cowichan

Kali Mullin and her teammates had a packed day of volleyball last Sunday when the Lake Cowichan U16 Stingers stung the competition at the Jan. 30 playday tournament, hosted at Lake Cowichan School.

In the round robin, teams played two-set matches, rather than the standard three sets. The Stingers defeated the Victoria Volleyball Association (VVA) boys team in both sets. They tied the VVA girls, before going on to best the Comox Valley Strikers in both sets.

In the semi-finals the teams played three-set games. The Stingers came close to victory, ultimately being defeated by the Campbell River Crush in the third set — and by a single point no less.

“It was a nail-biter,” said Belinda Waller, whose daughter Jordyn is on the team. “They had some really great rallies…It was a great day. It was wonderful to see so many people come to Lake Cowichan for a playday.”
