BVC Gold competed in both the 15/16U and 13/14U age divisions at the BVC Classic boys’ club volleyball tournament at the Healthy Living Centre on the weekend. They didn’t fare well in the older age group, falling in the quarter-finals of the lowest tier of the playoffs. However, the experience the BVC players gained from facing older players and playing with a higher net paid off in their age group as they went on to win the 13/14U title.

BVC dropped one set in the age group and defeated 204 14U Gold 2-1 (26-28, 25-19, 15-12) in the final.

"It's always good to win and I've always said success breeds success, so hopefully that will give our guys some confidence," Wilson said.

"… Having to play against guys that were young men against our young boys was a challenge and it was good for our guys and pushed them to their limits. They had to learn to score and defend in different ways because of the higher net and I thought it definitely helped us as we progressed through the weekend."

BVC Gold topped their preliminary round group by winning all eight sets before knocking off Tsunami 2-0 (25-23, 25-23) in the semifinals and Winman 2-0 (25-10, 25-18) in the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, BVC Mickey fell 2-0 (25-22, 25-12) to RVC Gold in the ninth-place match, while BVC Whitey lost the 13th place match 2-0 (25-15, 25-15) to Providence 13U.

17/18U AGE GROUP:

They may have missed the top tier of playoffs on the weekend, but BVC’s 17U team didn’t seem to mind. The squad won the 17/18U age group consolation final to place fifth and felt they are finally starting to click as a team.

"I’m really happy," libero Reid Sutherland said. "We played really well as a team and we’re finding our chemistry. It’s satisfying to finally beat some of these teams we’ve been battling with for the last month."

BVC 17U finished third in their pool with a 4-4 record. They then beat their 18U club counterparts 2-1 (25-18, 22-25, 20-18) in the consolation semifinals before topping the Bisons 2-0 (27-25, 25-20) in the consolation final. Seth Friesen had 10 kills and four aces in the consolation final, while Josh McMillan added four kills and three aces. The 18U BVC team finished fourth in its pool with a 2-6 record.

15/16U AGE GROUP:

The BVC Davies team was the best of the Westman squads in their age group. The team topped its preliminary round group with a 6-2 mark to reach to top division of the playoffs, before falling in the quarter-finals to the eventual champion 204 16U club.

BVC Delly reached the middle division semifinals before falling 2-0 (25-13, 25-17) to the Winman Rebels. The Rebels knocked off BVC 15U 2-0 (25-14, 25-15) in the quarter-finals. Major Pratt also fell in the middle division quarter-finals.
