The L.V. Rogers senior girls volleyball team came home from the UBCO tournament in Kelowna with a 5-1 record over the weekend.

The Bombers started in the Tier 3 bracket with a 27-25, 25-21 and 15-3 win over Salmo.

After a rough beginning they went on to face AL Fortune of Enderby, and again won in three sets (23-25, 25-15, 15-8). They then made quick work of Summerland in two sets (25-18 and 25-16).

The round robin sweep allowed the Bombers to move up to Tier 2.

In the crossover they lost to Alberta’s Chestermere in two straight 9-25 and 17-25, but came back to beat George Elliot of Kelowna 25-16 and 25-7.

In the finals they played Valleyview of Kamloops taking the match in three sets (19-25, 25-22 and 15-9).

The results put the team in a tie for ninth in Tier 2 and 25th overall in the 40 team tourney.

Jayden Roch and Jan Douglas were spectacular at the net, Abbie Willans was solid in the setting position, Kelby Palm, Antonia Katountas and Kelly Westerop were on fire in the power position and Erica Augsten covered every inch of the court on defence and on the attack. Becca Schrader, Emily Dergousoff and Calena Marchand all came in to pull the team to their best finish over the last five years attending this tournament.
