Jewels swept up by Falcons

Heading into the North Okanagan playoffs the Salmon Arm Secondary Grade 10 Jewels volleyball team

Heading into the North Okanagan playoffs the Salmon Arm Secondary Grade 10 Jewels volleyball team was brimming with confidence last Thursday at the Jackson Campus gym.

The Jewels faced off against cross town rivals King’s Christian in the first game, winning both sets, 25-20 and 25-18, led by Brenna Issac and Taylor Watts.

In their next match, the Jewels faced off against Revelstoke for the top spot in the division.

Revelstoke took the first set 25-15.

Redeeming themselves in the second set against Revelstoke, the Jewels defeated the visitors 25-18.

In a winner-take-all third set, Revelstoke narrowly nabbed the victory  15-12.

The Jewels would have to battle the AL Fortune Falcons for second place in the division and for a spot in the zone championships.

In the challenge round the Falcons could not handle the confident Jewels, who easily won the first set 25-12.

In the second set the Jewels’ strongest asset, their serving, let them down as they only managed to hit 11 serves in bounds.

The Falcons took advantage of the Jewels’ serving errors, winning 25-20. For the second match in a row the Jewels would battle it out in a third set.

The Jewels cracked under the pressure and were handed a second straight loss.

Rounding up their season, the Jewels faced off against the senior Jewels in a friendly match over the weekend.
