The Dawson Creek Dynamite, a U17/U18 volleyball team from the city, came back from the National Championship in Edmonton earlier this month with a silver medal. 

The team competed against others from Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories, Alberta, B.C. and Manitoba. 

“(We) was very excited to win the silver medal and end the volleyball season with such a strong finish,” assistant coach Richell Schwartz said. 

The road to the medal round was met with adversity. The team came from behind to take the first set at the tournament 25-23 against Manitoba. They lost the second set 25-16, but came back in the third to win 15-9 and move on. 

Next they played Alberta, defeating them in three sets, 25-15, 25-19 and 15-11.

They lost in the final to Vancouver’s Apex Avalanche in two sets.
