The Duncan Christian School Chargers came back after losing the first set to win the bronze medal match at the school’s senior boys volleyball tournament last weekend.

After losing the opening game 25-20 to Claremont, the Chargers came back to win the second set 26-24, then held on in the third set to win 25-12.

Going the distance in the bronze-medal match continued a trend for the host team. The Chargers opened the playoff round against Gulf Islands Secondary and rebounded from a 25-20 loss to win a 30-28 marathon, then close out the match with a 15-9 victory. They also went to three sets in the semifinals against new Colwood school Royal Bay, but lost 25-20, 22-25, 15-10.

The Frances Kelsey Breakers also competed in the tournament, finishing 10th overall.

Power hitter Matt Brandsma represented Duncan Christian on the tournament all-star team, while Jeffrey Dayton was picked from Kelsey.
