When it comes to the 2022 season – the DCSS Junior Girls volleyball team expects to be competitive this year.
Coach Terri Spencer says the team began their season this weekend with a trip to Prince George.
“Their hectic schedule began this past weekend with the College Heights tournament,” she says.
North Peace will host a tournament mid October, while the DCSS Junior Girls will host a tournament of their own Oct. 28/29.
Regionals are shaping up for Nov. 5/6, with zones to follow. Top three teams head to provincial play come end of November.
“It should be a very competitive year – with little time off,” says Spencer.
About the weekend, Spencer said it was amazing.
“We lost our first match to North Peace in three sets, winning the first, losing the second, and then losing a close third. We finished out pool play with wins over PGSS and College Heights which placed us in 2nd in our pool,” she says.
“Our crossover was a match-up between us and College Heights (B team) which was a fairly easy win. We advanced to the semi-final, which ended up being against PGSS - we had a strong game and win to put us in the final game against North Peace! It was a great match up - our teams are both strong and each have different strengths.”
"The team took the first set quite easily, with a 25-16 win. North Peace took the 2nd set, 26-24 and we lost the 3rd set 15-11. The girls played great for our first tournament of the season. The draw was a bit tricky for us as we ended up playing the quarter final, semi-final and final game all in a row with no breaks.”
Tyler Schmidt was named “Player of the Tournament” for the team. Lillian Moore from NPSS was named the same for NPSS.
