Here’s the Centennial Christian School Senior Girls volleyball team.

Milestone year so far for Centennial girls volleyball team

Centennial Christian’s Senior Girls volleyball team hit 10th overall in the provincial rankings for Senior Girls “A” last week

Centennial Christian’s Senior Girls volleyball team hit 10th overall in the provincial rankings for Senior Girls “A” last week, marking an exciting milestone for the team.

“I’m so proud of my team,” said coach Kelsey Horlings, noting the support of assistant coach Rayna Braam. “Although the boys’ teams at Centennial have placed multiple times in the top 10, this is the first time our Senior Girls have placed.”

Horling has coached most of the team since Grade 7, saying she has “seen them grow into fantastic teammates and strong players.”

Of the eight players on the team, two have been pulled up from Grade 9 in order to have enough members for the team.

“They have caught on quickly and blend right in with our senior players,” she said.

“This is the most coachable team I have ever had – all of the girls show up to practice ready to give it their all and are eager to learn, which has helped them get to where they are this season,” she said.

“They also have a genuine love for the sport and know how to have fun with it, but I am most proud of the way they encourage and support each other on and off the court,” she said.

The team’s played in three tournaments so far, losing only one game to Smithers Senior Secondary’s AAA team.

In their most recent tournament, two weekends ago, the team placed first out of nine teams, beating out Charles Hayes from Prince Rupert (AAA) and Hazelton Secondary (A) in the final matches.

Next weekend, the team heads to DP Todd in Prince George before zones in Houston Nov. 16.
