Jewels look to take top playoff seed

The Grade 10 Jewels Volleyball team were in tough on home court against Revelstoke, AL Fortune and King’s Christian

The Grade 10 Jewels Volleyball team were in tough on home court against Revelstoke, AL Fortune and King’s Christian.

The first-place Jewels dropped games to Revelstoke and AL Fortune.

Revelstoke’s rocketing servers proved too tough to handle for the Jewels as they struggled to get their offence rolling.

Diving beyond all effort to put up some points for the Jewels were Jaden Turner and Sophie Gervais.

Katie Kalke was named the team MVP on the night, consistently proving to be a thorn in the opposing team’s side with her tough serves.  Spiking from the attack line was Taylor Watts and Kaitlin Munro who were nicely set up by setter Tess Striker.

The Jewels head off to AL Fortune on Thursday, Oct. 29 to face the Falcons and settle the league standings heading into the playoffs.
