Alberni Airborne U13 volleyball team won silver medals at their Island Championships at VIU in Nanaimo on April 12.

Julie Anderson, who coaches the U13 Airborne, said the team played strongly all weekend.

The Airborne started their pool play against Nanaimo Mariners Blue and won in the third set (22-25, 25-5 and 15-10). Then played Comox Valley Strikers and won in two sets (25-16 and 25-18).

That placed them first in their pool and lined them up to play Powell River Aces for their first playoff round, which they won in three sets (25-18, 19-25 and 15-6). That moved them into the gold medal game which unfortunately they ended up losing to the Nanaimo Mariners White team (25-7, 25-13).

The Airborne are now ranked to play in Division 1 for provincials April 24–25 in Abbotsford.
