Caledonia’s senior girls volleyball team is finding its footing this season, with two tournaments away and one at home under its belt.

The team travelled to Prince George Sept. 13 and 14, where it had a bit of a rough start, placing sixth out of 12 teams.

“Being the first tournament early in the season, this was expected as the girls were learning systems and the whole team was not able to go to this tournament,” said coach Carmen Didier.

And two weekends ago the team was in Kamloops, Sept. 27 and 28, with much better results in its second tournament.

Placing third out of 29 teams, the team played consistently the entire tournament, beating some prominent teams from the Lower Mainland.

The team lost in the semi-final match to Chilliwack, but came back strong to get the bronze – beating Prince George in two sets.

The team is hosting Smithers here in Terrace today.
