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.
