After a tight three-set match, Vanderhoof’s Viqueens defeated D.P.Todd Secondary from Prince George for third place at the invitational tournament on Saturday.
12 teams from the region including Chetwynd, Hudson’s Hope, Williams Lake, and Burns Lake, spiked and bumped at the Nechako Valley Secondary’s invitational tournament last weekend.
The Viqueens emerged victorious after losing 22-25 at the first set, then won 26-24 and 15-1 in the following sets.
It’s been a few years since Nechako Valley Secondary’s volleyball teams hosts an invitational tournament for the region, said NVSS senior girls volleyball coach Barb Ziler
“A gym full of happy kids, it doesn’t get much better than that,” Ziler said.
Duchess Park and College Heights played for the gold medal with Duchess Park taking the Gold Medal and College Heights with the silver medal.
