Cowichan’s Groenendijk volleyball star siblings make BC Games cut

Duncan Christian School volleyball star siblings Danielle and Doug Groenendijk will spend this summer competing with elite-level volleyball teams.

Danielle made the cut for the Island U15 girls team and will compete at the BC Summer Games in Nanaimo on July 17-20.

Doug, meanwhile, has made Team BC for the second year in a row and will compete at the National Team Challenge Cup in Gatineau, Quebec in July 15-20.

The National Team Challenge Cup is the highest level of competition for the provincial team in non-Canada Games years.

Danielle and Doug are continuing their family’s impressive volleyball legacy.

Oldest brother Cam played for the Redeemer University College Royals in Ancaster, Ontario, last season, while sister Megan won a bronze medal at nationals with the Vancouver Island University Mariners.
