Taking on the championships

Seven teams competed at the triple A senior girls North Central Zone volleyball Championships, held at CNC in Prince George.

Seven teams from Dawson Creek, Prince George, Quesnel and Williams Lake competed at the triple A senior girls North Central Zone volleyball Championships, held at CNC in Prince George.

Top two teams made the provincials, Pre-tournament favourites were College Heights and Duchess Park who were ranked third and  fourth in the province.

Correlieu went 5-2 in the round robin portion, beating both Lake City from Williams Lake and Kelly Road of Prince George two straight sets (round robin was best of three sets).

Their final round robin contest was against College Heights and it was an exciting match as Correlieu lost the opening set 18-25 before rallying to take the next set 26-24 before losing the final set 9-15.

On Saturday, Correlieu as the second ranked team in Pool A played Dawson Creek who they defeated in two straight games to advance to the semi –final game against Duchess Park who received a bye to the final because of finishing first in their pool.

College Heights, the first ranked team in Pool A, faced off against PGSS who had defeated Kelly Road to advance to the semi-final.

Duchess Park and College Heights both swept their opposition in the best of five semi’s to set up an all P.G. final. Before the final, the bronze medal game on centre court was the last opportunity for the Correlieu girls to put into play all of the long hours of practice that the core of the team has been working together on for five years.

Correlieu had a little revenge on their minds as they had lost to PGSS the previous two times they played them this season.

In the end Correlieu just wouldn’t be denied as they had two huge kills from second team All-Star Kaitlin Godsoe, who was set-up by first team All-Star setter Olivia Erdman to close out the match to earn a well-deserved 25-21, 26-24 Bronze Medal Victory.

College Heights ended up winning the Championship Final in straight sets, 26-24, 25-16, 25-21 over Duchess Park.

Both teams will be travelling to Parksville for the Provincial Championship Nov. 27-29.
