Season starts strong for volleyball boys

The Fraser Valley Volleyball Club’s U-14 boys played in two season-opening tournaments last weekend, just missing a perfect start to their season. On Saturday, the team traveled to the Pacific Academy in Surrey, coming away with a 6–0 record.

They knocked off White Rock (25-6, 25-5), Victoria (25-21, 25-19), their own Fraser Valley U13 brothers twice (25-20, 25-9 and 25-9, 25-6) and two teams from the host Force Volleyball Club (25-5, 25-4 and 25-9, 25-6)

Chilliwack’s Mark Harrison (Mt. Slesse middle school) had seven service aces and added 24 assists. Josiah Mooy (Surrey Christian) played a key role in his first ever tournament with the team with 15 kills, eight service aces and five stuff blocks.

On Sunday, the boys traveled to Surrey’s Fraser Heights secondary school. The FVVC club got off to another great start, defeating the Victoria Flyers (26-24, 25-14), Mission (25-12, 25-16) and the host Eagles (25-14, 25-23).

They downed White Rock in the semi-final (27-25, 25-13) but came up just short in the final, falling to Victoria in a three-set rematch (25-22, 15-25, 13-15). Langley Fundamental’s Steven Hsu had 16 kills and four aces for FVVC while Ben Friesen (Abbotsford) and Chilliwack’s Levi Block added 24 and 13 assists respectively.

The boys now prepare for a huge test this weekend as they travel to Richmond to compete as the only U-14 team in the Air Attack Volleyball Club’s U-16 Invitational at McRoberts secondary school.
