Seahawks edge Totems for PAN Classic title

Seaquam defeats Semiahmooo Saturday to claim top spot at the annual senior girls volleyball tournament in South Surrey.

The Seaquam Seahawks are the new champions of the Peace Arch News Classic after a win Saturday over one of the host squads.

Seaquam took top spot in the annual senior girls volleyball tournament – held at Semiahmoo and Elgin Park secondaries on Friday and Saturday – with a 2-0 (25-12, 25-18) win over the Semiahmoo Totems in the gold-medal game.

After the Seahawks won the first set with relative ease – largely behind the play of middle hitter Bryn Pasin, said tournament organizer Gord Houchen – the Totems fought hard to tie it in the second game, but were stymied by a red-hot Seaquam side.

“It was a pretty solid effort, and a good result for the girls,” said Semiamhmoo coach Paisley Poelzer.

Prior to their matchup against the North Delta-based Seahawks, the Totems won their semifinal tilt 2-0 (25-17, 27-25) over Sardis, while Seaquam defeated Magee in the other semifinal.

Magee wound up finishing third, defeating Sardis in the bronze-medal game Saturday afternoon.

Seaquam’s Amanda Tabe was named MVP, while all-star nods went to Pasin (Seaquam), Kalissa Beltrand (Semiahmoo), Amanda Standerwick (Semiahmoo), Leah Serlin (Magee), Brianna Connolly (Fraser Heights) and Josie Delisa (Clayton Heights).
