LCSS Midget girls’ volleyball win district tourney

Cowichan Valley Invitational Midget Girls’ volleyball tournament: LCSS Grade 8 girls’ volleyball team swept their contenders under the rug

They came, they played, they conquered.

At the Cowichan Valley Invitational Midget Girls’ volleyball tournament, the LCSS Grade 8 (midget) girls’ volleyball team swept their contenders under the rug, coming away with a first place finish.

Five teams met for the one-day round robin tournament, held November 20 at George Bonner Middle School in Mill Bay: Salt Spring Middle School, Queen of Angels (Duncan), George Bonner A and George Bonner B (Mill Bay), and Lake Cowichan Senior Secondary.

Coach Karen Neuffer said it was a slow start for the girls who lost their first match to George Bonner’s B team.

Undeterred by the early defeat, later on in the day the Lakers met George Bonner’s A team in a very exciting match which they won by a slim margin of just two points.

With one loss and one win, the Lakers went on to win the rest of their matches in the round robin part of the tournament, earning them a spot in the finals. The Lakers went on to win their first two games in the finals, which meant they didn’t have to play a third match as it was a best two-out-of-three final.

Since the start of the season mid-September, the LCSS Midget girls volleyball team have played well, Neuffer said.

“The girls have had a very successful season and won most of their games,” commented Neuffer. “The (Midget girls) worked hard at regular after-school practices, and often worked on skill-building with senior and junior players during the lunch hour.”

After such an exciting competitive season, Neuffer says she and the team are a bit sad to see the season over. However, she added the team is keeping active playing intramural volleyball at lunchtime with the Grade 8-12 students and staff.
