Groenendjik named a provincial season all-star

Danielle Groenendijk was named an all-star in club volleyball as the season wrapped up with the provincial tournament.

Duncan Christian School multi-sport star Danielle Groenendijk was named an all-star in club volleyball as the season wrapped up with the provincial tournament on the weekend in Richmond.

Groenendijk served as co-captain of the U17 Nanaimo Mariners as they won the U18 Island championships, beating Victoria in the title match last month.

The provincial tournament didn’t go as well as the Mariners had hoped, as they were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs and ended up finishing ninth.

Groenendijk was one of 12 players in her age group chosen from across the province as Volleyball BC Season All-Stars. Coaches nominated and voted on the all-star selections.
