The senior girls Last Spike volleyball tournament featured a good mix of volleyball teams across the Okanagan and one team from the Kootenays. The emphasis of the volleyball tournament is to have fun and that teams have a positive experience during their short stay in Revelstoke. Our new volleyball friendly facility combined with a positive approach to the game from officials, coaches, and players was a winning combination.

The Revelstoke Secondary senior girls volleyball team had a great start in Saturday’s semi-final. The team dominated the first game against Vikings from Valleyview Secondary School in Kamloops. Momentum swung early in the second set with a dominate serve and attack by the Vikes. The Avalanche girls were unable to swing the momentum back and the Vikings won the next two sets to put them into the final.

The Avalanche faced the Huskies from Kelowna in the bronze medal match. The Avalanche dominated the first set winning 25-14. The Huskies won a close second set 25-20. The final set went in the Huskies favour 15-9. The Avalanche had a very successful weekend getting some valuable home court time against some strong opponents.

The gold medal match was between the Vikings from Valleyview Secondary School and the Eagles from Golden Secondary School. The Vikes sailed through the first set 25-14. The Eagles fought back and stole the second set 26-24. The Viking stormed back in the final set 15-7 to win the gold medal match.
