Chemainus senior boys work hard in Island tournament

Tough opponents push the limits for short bench during pool play

The Chemainus Secondary School Cougars senior boys volleyball team gave its all during the Island championships at Nanaimo Christian School.

Chemainus faced host Nanaimo Christian School and St. Andrew’s in its round robin games.

“Our guys played hard and had a solid effort all round, but both teams in our pool were very talented so we were in tough from the get-go,” noted Cougars’ coach Sean Lefebure.

After a pair of losses, the Cougars went against Gaglardi in a consolation game. Two close sets ended with the Cougars losing both.

“Fatigue had set in for our short bench, for sure,” added Lefebure.
