Jewels claim number-one seed

On the back of an impressive weekend, the Salmon Arm Secondary Jewels Grade 10 girls volleyball team secured the top seed

On the back of an impressive weekend, the Salmon Arm Secondary Jewels Grade 10 girls volleyball team secured the top seed in their division heading into playoffs.

It was not a cake walk as the Jewels beat AL Fortune by two points each game last Thursday, taking each set 26-24.

Jeanah Gunn and Emily New earned 10 points each from their serves, wreaking havoc on the AL Fortune Falcons’ defence.

The serves ricocheted off the Falcons, leaving them scrambling to get the ball over the net.

Cherish Dufresne and Tess Striker provided an impenetrable ‘wall’ that the Falcons’ attackers could not break down.

In the third match of the evening, King’s Christian put the pressure on the Jewels, forcing them to perform and work well as a team under anxious moments.

Both teams combined for thrilling rallies. In the end, Gunn made some great defensive saves for the Jewels to take the win.

As the first place seed in their division, the Jewels have secured home-court advantage for their playoff matches Thursday at the Jackson campus gym. Games start at 4, 5 and 6 p.m. to determine the winner of the league.
