The Grade 7A and 7B girls competed at the 2nd Annual Southridge Invitational Volleyball Tournament on Wednesday, October 24th, 2018. The tournament was composed of 10 teams with 2 divisions.
The Grade 7B girls lost all 4 games in their pool but gained lots of experience playing regular volleyball to get ready for Grade 8 as opposed to ISEA “triple ball volleyball”.
The 7A girls won all 4 games in pool play defeating Khalsa School (25-10, 20-25, 15-5), Aberdeen Hall (25-8, 25-2), Star of the Sea B (25-10, 25-8), and Crofton House (25-19, 25-17). This placed them 1st in Pool A and headed to the semi-finals against Star of the Sea A team. They defeated them in 2 games and placed them against an always tough opponent in West Point Grey Academy.
In the finals, we split the first 2 games and it came down to a 3rd game to 15. Southridge struggled at first and were down 13-7 but Vicky Zhang came up and served 8 straight with her powerful overhand serve to give us the match 15-13.
In ISEA play, the Grade 7B girls placed 4th in the East division and are playing York House B (5th in West division) on Tuesday, October 30th to qualify for ISEA Championships on November 2nd. The Grade 7A girls placed 2nd in the ISEA regular season and are ready for the ISEA Championships at Crofton House on November 2nd.
