Trafalgar triumphant: Grade 8 girls take volleyball tourney

The Trafalgar Grade 8 girls volleyball team won the West Kootenay Volleyball Playoffs at Mt. Sentinel last week by defeating themselves in the final.

The local squad had two teams in the Tier One playoffs and ended up playing each other for the championship.

“It was probably the best game actually,” said Staci Proctor head coach of the Trafalgar volleyball program.

Trafalgar’s team one went undefeated in round robin play, defeating its namesake team two squad as well as Grand Forks, Rossland, Stanley Humphries and the host Mt. Sentinel.

The final saw the Trafalgar squads play a best of three, with team one taking it two games to one.

The local school also had a third team in the playoffs, who participated in the Tier Two competition.

That squad finished the tournament in fourth place.

“It’s always a good turnout for the girls,” said Proctor regarding the three teams.

The coach said it has been a great year for the local girls.

“It was a good end to the season. They really peaked at the end. They played better every tournament,” said Proctor.
