West Kootenay club wins bronze at volleyball provincials

The under-18 girls finished third at the event in Richmond

The West Kootenay under-18 girls captured bronze last weekend at the volleyball club provincials in Richmond.

The team, made up of Nelson players plus one from Castlegar, went undefeated through three pool games while dropping just one set.

In the playoffs, the team beat a Squamish squad 2-0 in the quarter-finals but fell 2-1 to a club from South Surrey and White Rock.

The West Kootenay club rallied to earn bronze with a 2-0 win over a Courtenay club.
