Caledonia’s grade 10 Junior Girls volleyball team had a strong showing in Prince George two weekends ago, placing fifth out of 23 teams.
The Oct. 24 and 25 tournament started with a second place finish in pool play after beating DP Toff two games to one, losing two to one to the eventual tournament winner College Heights, and bouncing back to beat Fort St. James two to one.
This meant the team played Skeena Middle School in the next round, beating them two games to one and “unfortunately knocking Skeena into the consolation rounds of play,” wrote coach Adri MacKay in an email last week.
Caledonia then played Duchess Park, losing 2-1 in a very tightly contested match. “With a win we would have made semi-finals, but the loss sent us to play for 5th and 6th against Dr. Kearney (Fort St. John),” she said.
Terrace defeated this team in two games straight to take fifth place overall.
“Correina McNeice was chosen for recognition as our most consistent player of the tournament,” she said. “Some great volleyball was played over the two day event.”
