Athletes from the Alberni Airborne Volleyball U14 team

Alberni Airborne excel at provincials

The Alberni Airborne Volleyball teams were three of 200 competing at the provincial championships last weekend.

The Alberni Airborne Volleyball teams were three of 200 competing at the provincial championships last weekend across various age groups and divisions. They had games on 30 courts consistently for three days.

Alberni’s 14U team played phenomenally on the first day, coaches Lindsay Devine and Jay Dyer said.

“The girls’ positive energy, hard work and movement helped to be so successful.”

In our pool play the 14U team finished second, missing first place by losing a hard battle to the Death Stars in the third match 13-15.

The girls had a rough day on Saturday, losing both their games to give them a sixth place finish out of 12 teams in their division.

“The pressure the girls had to deal with over the weekend was a huge learning curve for many of our girls that have never been put in such intense situations before,” Devine said.

The girls have Nationals coming up (May 8-11).

The 13U team, coached by Carly Whitmore, Claire Champagne and Jamie Clarke, finished seventh. The 12U team, coaches by Julie Anderson and Kym Cyr finished third in their pool play and 11th out of 12 in the 13U division.
