CCS Sr. Boys Volleyball shuts out the competition at Terrace tourney

A joint senior boys volleyball tournament hosted by Centennial Christian School and Caledonia Secondary School ended with big wins for both Terrace schools, with CCS winning each of their three matches and Cal’s two teams winning four out of six.

The weekend event, held over the weekend of Oct. 27, saw teams from all over the northwest pack the Cal gymnasium.  Each team played three match-ups with best out of two sets (or three, if there was a tie).

CCS was pleased with the results, especially because one of their top players, Jason Bandstra, rolled his ankle early in the day and will be out for a while.

“We had various players step up and play to their potential, especially in our final game versus single A zone rival Bulkley Valley Christian School,” said Pastor Joel Ringma, who coaches the team with  Peter Ramsay  and Jesiah Bartley.

CSS ended up with a decisive win against these rivals, with scores of 25-19 and 25-14 in the two sets.

“The overall play of our team was very good,” said Ringma. The team is currently ranked fourth in their provincial single A division.

Cal, who divided into two teams to allow for an even number of teams, fared well for the day, also.

Winning against BVCS in a close three-game battle, and losing only to CSS and HCS.
