In the finals, both teams won their first game, lost the second, then won the third.

It was extremely exciting with amazing energy and skill demonstrated by both teams.

The high calibre of volleyball at Summerland Secondary School over the last couple of years is unprecedented.

Both junior teams winning the same high level tournament has never happened in recent history, if ever.

The Grade 9 girls team from Summerland Secondary School were in the same tournament and finished a respectable ninth in their tier. They finished higher than any other Grade 9 team in the tournament.
