Seahawks earn silver at home, Breakers win bronze

Provincial volleyball tournaments take place at Seaquam, Pacific Academy high schools

Two local high schools hosted provincial volleyball championship tournaments last weekend, and each won a medal.

The Seaquam Seahawks had a near-perfect run at the Senior AAA girls high school competition they hosted at the North Delta school, losing their only match in Saturday night’s championship game.

Playing the Nanaimo Islanders, Seaquam lost a close, five-set match (25-22, 18-25, 16-25, 25-22, 21-19).

The Seahawks cruised through the four-team Pool B, winning all three matches in straight sets. Their playoff run began Friday morning with a 3-0 sweep of the Rick Hansen Hurricanes, and continued that night with a 21-25, 25-22, 25-20, 25-13 win over Little Flower Academy.

In the semifinal, against Point Grey, the Seahawks needed four sets (25-12, 25-20, 20-25, 25-20) to advance to the final.

Tamara Clarke, Amy Davidson and Leah Martin of the Seahawks were selected to the tournament’s first all-star team.

The Clayton Heights Nightriders were also at the provincial tournament at Seaquam Secondary, placing 12th.

The Pacific Academy Breakers were the hosts for the Senior AA girls championship, and edged the Surrey Christian Falcons in the bronze medal match.

The Breakers swept their three matches in pool play, finishing first in Pool C.

They won twice in the playoffs Friday, defeating Hatzic (16-25, 25-11, 25-17, 25-14) and Elphinstone (25-23, 25-22, 25-15).

Surrey Christian got off to a slower start, as they lost twice in straight sets and won a three-set match to place third in Pool B. They also won twice Friday, topping Cedar (25-11, 25-18, 19-25, 25-21) and Kalamalka (17-25, 26-24, 25-22, 25-14).

In the semifinal round Saturday morning, Pacific Academy fell to Langley Fundamental (25-21, 19-25, 26-24, 20-25, 15-12) while the Falcons lost to Lambrick Park (25-16, 25-13, 27-25).

Shaylene Reimer of Pacific Academy was a first-team all-star, with teammate Jessica Funk earning a second-team selection. The Falcons also had a pair of all-stars, Beckey Garner on the first team and Kiera VanRyk on the second.
