Golden Bears in contention

The Brandon Volleyball Club Golden Bears got off to a perfect start at the Canadian West Open 14-and-under boys’ championship on Friday in Abbotsford, B.C.

BVC went 3-0 in the preliminary round to top its pool and stay in contention for the western Canadian title going into today’s power pool stage of the competition.

Meanwhile, at the national club volleyball championships in Edmonton:

17U Girls

The Brandon-based Storm had their championship hopes dashed on Day 1 of the event. The Storm finished third in their Division 1 preliminary pool with a 1-2 mark, meaning the best they can finish is ninth.

In Division 2, the Carberry-based Cats Volleyball Club went 2-1 to place second in their preliminary pool.

17U Boys

Brandon Volleyball Club dropped to a lower power pool after going 1-2 in the preliminary round. BVC’s win came against the Wolves, from Grande Prairie, Alta., and the best the team can finish now is ninth place.

18U Girls

The Brandon-based Storm were fighting to keep their hopes of a top-eight finish at nationals alive late Friday night. The Storm split their first two matches and were taking on BCO from Surge Narrows, B.C., at press time. The Storm needed a win to move into a top power pool and give them a chance to reach Sunday’s quarter-finals.

In Division 2, the Brandon-based Cats went 1-2 in their preliminary round but finished last in the pool to drop to a lower-level power pool today.

In Division 3, the Forrest-based Big Bear club went 1-2 in the preliminary round, but their final placing in the pool wasn’t known at press time.

18U Boys

In Division 2, Brandon Volleyball Club finished in a three-way tie for first in its pool at 2-1 and garnered top spot based on set differential to advance to a top-end power pool. Meanwhile, the Brandon-based Team Extreme lost all three of its matches, winning only one set, to drop into a lower-end power pool.
