The Dawson Creek Dynamite Volleyball Club has kicked off their regular season with a clean SWEEP of the Peace River Volleyfest Tournament in all 3 Divisions entered!
After a strong 4th place finish last weekend at the Meerkat Classic in Grande Prairie on January 26-27th, the U14 girls went undefeated in Peace River this past weekend. After falling behind 21-24 to the home town PRVC team in the second set, they battled back to take the gold, winning 27-25!
The U15’s are on a roll with a 15-0 record so far this season! The girls took home the trophy at the Meerkat Classic after a win over the Beaverlodge Rebels. The U15’s came up against the Rebels again in the semi-final of the Peace River tournament on Sunday February 3rd. They fell behind early, but after a second time-out to regroup at 8-18, the team dug deep to pull out a 25-20 victory. Moving on to the gold medal match, the team took first place again by defeating NBCVC out of Fort St. John.
The Club’s senior U17/18 team is also off to an amazing start. The ladies had a long day Saturday, battling 5 teams at Volleyfest. They beat the likes of Peace River’s U16 girl’s and boy’s teams, PRVC U17/18’s, as well as the Chetwynd senior boys and CPVC out of Spirit River. They too, were up against the home town Peace River Revolution U17/18 team in the final match. The DCVC ladies came out strong and dominated both sets, taking the gold with scores of 25-12 and 25-19.
