Brentwood not at provincial volleyball finals for first time in nine years
The wild card route to making the provincial AA senior girls’ AA volleyball championships didn’t quite work out for Brentwood College.
Brentwood played three matches in the four-team event on the Lower Mainland to determine one wild card berth in the provincials.
Brentwood defeated Princess Margaret in two sets 25-17, 25-18 but then lost to M.E.I. 25-15, 23-25, 12-15 and St. Patrick’s 20-25, 16-25.
“We played scared but I think our young team learned an immeasurable amount,’’ noted Brentwood coach Jill Fougner. “It was the first time in nine years that we have not been at a provincial championship.’’
That was a bit hard to take but things look promising for next season with the bulk of the team returning becoming a year older and wiser from the experience by the time they return to the court again.
