FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – While the senior boys’ volleyball team’s season came to a close on the weekend, the senior girls’ team booked a spot in the Provincial Championships in Nanaimo.

The North Peace Secondary School Grizzlies hosted the Prince George Secondary School Polars on November 20th for a pair of games to determine whose season would continue and whose season would end.

The senior boys’ team started off strong in the first set, but they were up against a solid team in Prince George Secondary School. The Grizzlies pushed the Polars to three sets, showing their best stuff of the season, but the Polars held on for the win.

The boys grew as a team and as individuals throughout the season, and PGSS coaches recognized the Grizzlies for their progress.

Devon Lee was the team MVP, Cole Harder was the team All-Star, and Matthew Menduk was awarded Most Sportsmanlike.

The senior girls opened their match with a solid effort, and they never looked back, winning all three sets to take the win. The girls showed maturity on the court as they earned a spot at Provincials.

Kesney Myllymaki was the team MVP, Grace Adams was the team All-Star, and Avery Hucker was chosen as Most Sportsmanlike.

The girls will head to Nanaimo to battle for a championship from December 1st to 5th.

According to Athletic Director Jaclyn McNicol, the Grizzlies are getting ready for the shift into winter sports with basketball tryouts this week, weather permitting.

Basketball season will start in January.
