At the Last Spike volleyball tournament in Revelstoke on Oct. 17/18, the Salmon Arm Secondary Junior Jewels took on King’s Christian first, going to three games.
Although King’s was in the lead 10-7, the Jewels came back to win 15-12.
The next game was not so close with a polished Eagle River team dominating the scoreboard.
The third game of the day showed a bit of fatigue for the Jewels, but it was a great effort by Cass Prevost, Jaden Turner and Janessa Zappone.
In the final game of the day, SAS defeated Revelstoke handily with help from setter Paige Darbyson, Sophie Gervais, as well as power forward Ella Shykula-Ross and Brooke St Onge. The back row passing team worked well with Makenna Corston and Danika Sholinder.
Paige Darbyson won the skills competition and Ella Shykula-Ross was named MVP of the tournament. The Junior Jewels host on Thursday, Oct. 23, 4 p.m. at the Jackson campus gym.
