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.
