Caledonia girls hold sixth in volleyball provincials

One Terrace player, Jacey Neid, earned second team all star in the AAA championship

The Caledonia Kermode senior girls volleyball team earned sixth place in provincials last week, playing in Vancouver against the top 16 ‘AAA’ teams in the province.

The girls earned second place in pool play, beating Langley Secondary and Windsor Secondary and losing to Timberline Secondary on Thursday, Nov. 30.

They went on to defeat Dawson Creek in their first playoff game Friday, winning in three sets 25-19, 25-19 and 25-21.

But they lost the next playoff game against Mark R. Isfeld from Courtenay. They lost the first two sets 24-26 and 19-25, but battled back to claim the next two 25-16 and 25-22. But the near comeback unfortunately fell short, and the game finished with a 7-15 loss.

Next they played Carihi from Campbell River for fifth place, losing the first set 18-25, reversing it 25-18 in the next one, and losing the last one 8-15.

That put the girls at sixth place, standing firm at the same rank they earned last year.

And player Jacey Neid was named a second team all-star, one of 14 individual players recognized at the championship.

The senior girls from Centennial Christian School also competed in provincials last week, losing their games but having fun in the Fernie ‘A’ championship.
