Terrace player strikes bronze with team at Canada Summer Games

Evan Veldman was one of the 12 Team BC volleyball players at the national championship

Terrace’s Evan Veldman was one of 12 players on Team BC who together earned bronze at the recent Canada Summer Games.

Playing in Canada’s 50th summer games in Winnipeg, the BC team played some insane ball to take third, losing to the first-place Ontario team in the semi-final and then beating Quebec to take bronze.

Team BC claimed a 4-1 record in the round robin, beat Manitoba in the quarter-final, and then lost to Ontario in the semi-final.

That earned them a spot against Quebec in the bronze medal match — a chance at redemption after narrowly losing to them in five-sets in the round robin.

Team BC won the first two sets 25-17 and 25-23, and then lost the third and fourth 21-25 and 24-26.

In the final set BC narrowly claim the victory in a tight 17-15 match.

BC took bronze, Alberta silver and Ontario claimed gold in the national men’s indoor volleyball championship at summer games.

B.C. athletes and teams won 146 medals overall, taking second place in medal standings behind Team Ontario which won 212 medals.
