Young Brentwood volleyball squad picks up the bronze
The sky's the limit for Brentwood College's young senior girls' volleyball team.
Coach Jill Fougner's squad reached new heights this season by earning the bronze medal in the Independent Schools Association tournament at Crofton House.
"It was a very good tournament,'' said Fougner. "We played a total of 14 sets.''
Traditional best-of-threes were not played until the final and the bronze medal game.
Brentwood had a nailbiter with Crofton House that ended 26-24, 22-25. Crofton House went straight to the final, as a result.
"That was tough for us because we split with them,'' said Fougner.
York House ended up winning the championship over Crofton House while Brentwood beat Mulgrave for the bronze in two straight.
Karlien le Roux of Brentwood was selected to the all-tournament team.
"The team's playing very well,'' said Fougner. "They're young and showed some good spunk this weekend and consistency.''
Besides the split with Crofton House, Brentwood lost two to York House, split with Mulgrave in the first meeting of the teams and swept Shawnigan Lake School, St. Michael's and West Point Grey.
"We just needed a game off York and would have been through to finals,'' said Fougner.
Next up is the North Island Championships at Kwalikum before Brentwood hosts the Island playdowns the following weekend.
