Jr. Chargers get best finish ever at VIU tourney

The Chargers started off by winning their first three matches, over Dover Bay 2 (25-0, 25-9), Claremont (25-17, 25-21) and Campbell River’s Woodlands (25-17, 25-22) before finally falling to Mark Isfeld 1 (23-25, 25-23, 17-15).

The Chargers placed first in their pool and second overall, advancing to the playoffs where they again defeated Dover Bay 2 (25-11, 25-13) before falling to Claremont (25-9, 25-15).

They avenged their earlier loss to Isfeld with a 21-25, 25-23, 15-9 win, then knocked off Woodlands again (25-17, 25-16). Another loss to Claremont (25-19, 25-19) put the Chargers in third place.

Mike Brandsma and Adam Kapteyn were selected as tournament all-stars.

The DCS junior boys will play host to Chemainus Secondary this Thursday, beginning at 3:45 p.m., then head to Langley for the B.C. Christian Schools Championships.
