Chilliwack’s Dawson Jarvis teamed with Maple Ridge native Colby Soolsma to take a bronze medal at the U-15 Boy’s Beach Volleyball provincials, hosted Aug. 5-6 by Volleyball B.C.
Matches were played under hazy smoke-filled skies at Spanish Banks.
Jarvis and Soolsma paced themselves well, acing serves, blocking, digging and smashing their way into a day two match vs Matt Battad and Angelo Ventresca. The four boys often train together and this time Battad and Ventresca got the upper hand, moving on to an eventual gold medal win.
Nick Toews and Marcus Wong from the Coquitlam Ducks Beach Club snuck into the silver medal spot while Jarvis and Soolsma settled for third place.
Jarvis is a Grade 10 student at GW Graham who trains with Athletes in Action in Langley and plays the indoor game with the Orangemen Volleyball Club out of Abbotsford.
