Just one victory catapulted Frances Kelsey to sixth place in the 10-team island AAA senior girls’ volleyball tournament at Parkland.

Kelsey ended up in a three-way tie after pool play with Esquimalt and Wellington. The Breakers got the nod for the higher placing, third in their pool, after a victory in three sets over Wellington.

Other pool games resulted in losses to powerful Nanaimo District Secondary and Timberline, with another loss to Esquimalt that complicated the standings.

Kelsey was ranked fifth in the pool.

“It was good for the girls to finish ahead of their ranking going into the pool play,’’ said coach Mark Jackson.

The team went on to place sixth overall after defeats to Carihi and Mark Isfeld. Darby Fischer of the Breakers was named a tournament all-star and Agnes Esser an honourable mention.
