DCS grad Groenendijk helps VIU to national tournament

Former Duncan Christian School volleyball standout Megan Groenendijk is playing for a national championship this week.

Groenendijk and the Vancouver Island University Mariners are seeded second in the eight-team field battling for the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association banner in Toronto. The tournament kicked off on Thursday as VIU played Mount Saint Vincent University in the opener.

Groenendijk, who graduated from DCS in 2012, was named a tournament all-star as VIU won the PACWEST provincial title on Feb. 23.
