Sr. Boys Volleyball

Thanks to all the students and parents who attended the Sr. Boys Volleyball Team matches last night at Claremont.  The Spartans defeated Vic High 25-07, 25-09 and Mt. Doug 25-05, 25-17.  The Spartans lost to the #4 BC ranked Reynolds 18-25, 16-25.  It was a good battle but the scores do not indicate the competitiveness of the rallies.  Special thanks to our minor official Talyor Sims, Abby Phillips, Victoria Vogel and Annika Schubert.
