LVR wins second volleyball tournament of season

The team lost just one set last weekend in Salmon Arm

The L.V. Rogers senior girls volleyball team has their second title of the season.

The Bombers rallied in the final against Merritt to win a tournament in Salmon Arm last weekend.

LVR lost the first set 16-25, but came back with aggressive play to take the next two sets 25-9 and 15-9 win the finale.

Earlier in the tournament, the Bombers defeated Ashcroft’s Desert Sands 25-11, 25-12; Enderby’s A.L. Fortune 25-20, 25-6; and Salmon Arm’s King’s Christian 25-12, 25-9 in pool play.

The next day the team downed Barrier 25-15, 25-13. In the semifinal LVR struggled with consistent passing and serving, but still held on to defeat King’s Christian 25-21, 25-17 in a rematch.

LVR previously won a tournament in Trail earlier this month. Its next game will be Nov. 16th when the Bombers face off against Trail’s J.L. Crowe in Nelson at the AAA zone finals.
