Clubbing the competition in Kelowna

The Fraser Valley U-14 boys volleyball team recorded a perfect weekend in Kelowna, taking apart the competition at the B.C. Volleyball Super Spike Tournament.

The local boys recorded six straight wins and did not lose a set on the way to the title.

Saturday saw wins against Kelowna B (25-3, 25-21), Vernon (25-10, 25-5), Kelowna C (25-8, 25-7) and East Vancouver’s Apex (25-16, 25-14).

On Sunday, the boys continued to roll with a win over Kelowna A (25-7, 25-11), setting up  a rematch with Apex in the championship final. The Fraser Valley club capped things off with another straight-sets win (25-22, 25-17).

Jonah Swanson (MEI, Abbotsford) was outstanding all weekend recording 21 kills, six aces and 18 digs while passing serve at a 2.23 clip on 13 attempts.

Jordan Loewen, also from MEI, had 17 kills, eight aces and six stuff blocks for the Fraser Valley crew. Curtis Schopf, a Chilliwack native and G.W. Graham student, teamed with Surrey Christian’s Josiah Mooy to play strong in the middle.

Mooy collected 10 kills and five stuff blocks while Schopf added eight kills and two stuff blocks.

The offense was quarterbacked by Ben Friesen and Jordy Koslowsky, both from MEI. Friesen had 48 assists and Koslowsky 46.

Steven Hsu of Langley Fundamental had 14 kills and Keaton Boughen (MEI) had 10 kills and 10 aces.

FVVC now sits with an overall record of 18 wins and 5 losses.

They will be in Burnaby at the U-15 SuperVolley tournament this weekend.

It will be a good test for the boys as they will once again be playing against older athletes and competing on a higher net than they are used to.
