Trafalgar teams square off in girls volleyball final

The Trafalgar A and B junior girls volleyball teams are seen after winning their respective pools at the West Kootenay playdowns at Mount Sentinel. They play today for the title.

Two Trafalgar teams played each other this afternoon in the final of the West Kootenay junior girls volleyball playoffs.

The A team beat the B team in two straight, 25-18 and 25-19.

Each finished first in their respective pools at Mount Sentinel on Friday night. Because they were running behind schedule, they decided to play the best-of-three final at Trafalgar today in front of the student body.

“They were pretty nervous playing in front of their peers and teachers but they enjoyed all the support,” said coach Staci Proctor.

Other teams at the regional playoffs were from Grand Forks, Castlegar, Mount Sentinel, Rossland, Trail and Salmo.

In the round robin, the Trafalgar A team only lost once, against Grand Forks, and won their other nine.

The B team fell only twice, to Mount Sentinel and Grand Forks, and won the other eight.

Most schools had two teams, except Rossland and Salmo.

“We have four returning players next year so I’m looking forward to next season already,” Proctor said. “What a great way to end an amazing season.”
