Chargers named Most Sportsmanlike Team at provincial championships

The Duncan Christian School Chargers were named the Most Sportsmanlike Team at the single-A provincial girls volleyball championships in Kelowna last weekend.

The Chargers entered the tournament seeded ninth, and finished in 13th place, but still came away with some hardware in the form of the sportsmanship award.

DCS opened pool play on Thursday with a 25-18, 26-24 win over Fernie Secondary. In their next match, against West Point Grey Academy, the Chargers lost the first set 25-14, and nearly came back to win the second set before falling 25-23. They closed out with a hard-fought 25-11, 21-25, 15-13 loss to Cedars Christian of Prince George.

When the playoffs opened on Friday, the Chargers were swept 25-16, 25-17, 25-19 by White Rock Christian Academy, then lost 25-22, 21-25, 16-14 to Kelowna Christian in a close match that could have gone either way.

DCS ended the weekend on a high note, winning back-to-back matches on Friday. First they swept Bulkley Valley Christian 25-12, 25-14. Then they won a rematch of their tournament opener against Fernie 28-26, 22-25, 25-18.
