The Correlieu Clan senior volleyball team with their coaches.

The Correlieu senior girls fought for the continuation of their season, mid-month in Prince George.

The girls faced P.G.S.S. and North Peace Senior Secondary in their zones, beating both in round robin before a heart breaking loss in the second round.

The Correlieu girls were facing off against the 4-A zones teams in an effort to make provincials and continue their season.

Despite the loss, Coach Mick Windt is proud of hit team’s play.

“I’m very pleased with how well the team played,” Windt said.

“In the final we played very strong again, but not quite enough.”

The team was looking good in the preliminary rounds.

Their first challenge was a strong P.G.S.S. team. Despite meeting P.G.S.S. on home turf, the Correlieu girls took the three game set in the first two, beating P.G.S.S. 25-19, then 25-18.

The girls then went on to play North Peace.

North Peace challenged Correlieu, pushing the meeting to three matches before capitulating before Correlieu. Correlieu took the first match 25-20, but, with their backs against the wall, North Peace came back to win the second set 25-18, leaving the decision for the third game. Now facing a loss for the first time in the tournament, Correlieu planted themselves and took the game 15-8.

The wins against both teams in their zone earned them a bye into the finals as P.G.S.S. and North Peace vied for a place in the finals.

North Peace came out on top, so Saturday afternoon Correlieu faced a rematch against the girls who had pushed them to three games in a best-of-five match.

The North Peace girls came out hard against Correlieu, gaining momentum in their first win, 25-22, that Correlieu never found the chance to break as North Peace continued to win. They took the second game 25-20 and the third 25-22 to take the match in three games.

Jordan Pawluk and Brooke Garvin were named to the all-star team in the tournament and Windt was also quick to praise Rebecca Milligan for her blocking while commenting that the rest of the team offered solid support.

Though the loss and exclusion from provincials was difficult, Windt is happy with the girls season

“We’ve had one of their best seasons in a number of years and have been a great team to coach,” Windt said, citing good tournament results in a competitive field.

“Thank you for a great season ladies and thanks for all the help from Assistant coach George Pawluk and all the time from our team Manager Sharon Pawluk,” Windt said.
