Quesnel Junior School Girl’s volleyball team competes in Kelowna

Despite a losing record the squad was never an easy out

Quesnel Junior School’s volleyball team had a tough go at a Kelowna tournament at the tail end of spring break.

Their play had suffered a little bit after a couple weeks off from practice, but technical director Amarjit Singh Sull says it was a valuable learning experience and helped them shake off the holiday rust for the tail end of the season.

He added despite going 0-6 during the 16-club tournament, the team did not fare so poorly.

“We played competitive volleyball in which the team went the three-set limit with some of the best club volleyball teams in the province,” he says.

“We didn’t feel the loss, nor were we disappointed with our effort.

“The team met many individuals goals they had set out versus the sport-specific volleyball club teams they came across.

“The weekend’s focus was coming out re-energized and focusing in on the small aspects of the game, serving stronger and learning to place spikes in key locations.”

Having faced off against some of the top clubs in the province, QJS feels ready to finish the season strong with regionals in Prince George and a chance at the provincial championships in Abbotsford at the end of April.
