Chemainus junior girls volleyball team making progress

Following the proper techniques leading to better play

The Chemainus Secondary School junior girls volleyball team continued its trend of making significant progress in recent action.

The Cougars played at Queen Margaret’s School Nov. 2, losing the first game handily before bouncing back with a vengeance in the second game.

“It was our best few games,” said coach Graeme Arkell.

“The second game we only lost by two points. It was super close. It could have gone either way.”

The teams went on to play a third game and Chemainus won that meeting by a substantial margin.

“The girls are really following the proper techniques and having a lot of fun on the court,” noted Arkell.

It was the same old story, though, at Queen of Angels last Tuesday where the match went well but Chemainus won one set and lost two.

The Cougars headed into the Island tournament at Brentwood College Tuesday, “looking to be a dark horse,” Arkell foreshadowed.
