Avi Ursulom led the Lake Cowichan Secondary School Lakers to a strong finish and a 13th-place result at the senior girls volleyball tournament hosted by Duncan Christian and Cowichan Secondary on Oct. 30 and 31.

Ursulom was named to the tournament all-star team for her fine play throughout the event.

The Lakers got off to a rough start in pool play, falling 25-6, 25-13 to the Duncan Christian Chargers, who would go on to finish third. They improved in their second match, against Ucluelet, losing 25-23, 25-21, then pushed Brentwood College School’s B team to the limit, losing the first set 25-13 and winning the second 25-23 before a 15-8 loss in the decisive set.

As a result, LCSS finished fourth in the pool and went into the consolation round.

In the first round of the consolation playoffs, the Lakers once again took Regent Christian Academy to the third set. The Lakers won 25-23, then lost 25-14, then put up a fierce battle before ultimately falling 18-16 in the third set.

The Lakers finished the tournament on a high note, beating Nanaimo Christian 25-17, 25-14, then winning a rematch with Brentwood 25-18, 28-26.
