Team BC's Brianna Beamish goes up against two Team Saskatchewan opponents during the Canada Summer Games in Sherbrooke

Brianna Beamish, Krista Hogewoning and Katy Klomps won silver medals in women’s volleyball at the Canada Summer Games in Sherbrooke, Quebec. The three Surrey natives were part of Team BC, which dominated the tournament until the gold medal match.

B.C. lost only one set while winning all five games in pool play, then slipped past Ontario 3-1 in the semifinal round. Against Alberta, the only team to win a set against B.C. in the round robin, Team BC won the first two sets 25-21, 21-13. They then lost three straight, falling 13-25, 20-25, 9-15.

Hogewoning, a graduate of Surrey Christian high school, had 67 kills and nine assists in the seven games. Beamish finished with 26 kills and three assists, while Klomps, also a Surrey Christian graduate, had nine kills and four assists.

In men’s volleyball, Fleetwood Park Secondary grad Nic Del Bianco led Team BC a bronze medal.

Del Bianco, a member of the Trinity Western University volleyball team, led Team BC with 53 kills in five round robin contests.

James Bell, also of Surrey and a current member of the UBC-Okanagan Heat, contributed to the Team BC cause with 19 kills.

Team BC posted a 4-1 (won-lost) record in round robin play, then edged Manitoba 21-15, 25-22, 25-20, 23-25, 15-13 in a quarterfinal match Tuesday, before losing in straight sets (25-27, 23-25, 21-25) to Alberta in the semifinal round.

Team BC defeated Ontario 3-1 (25-14, 25-23, 18-25, 25-23) this morning (Thursday) to clinch the bronze medal. Del Bianco had 33 kills in the three playoff matches, with Bell adding nine.
