Sr Girls Volleyball

It was a solid weekend for the Claremont Senior Girls Volleyball team this past weekend at the UBC Women's Open in Vancouver. The Spartan Girls, previously un-ranked, swept their pool in preliminary play before crossing over with last year’s Provincial Champions, Kelowna, in the semi-final. The girls battled, and ultimately dropped the match in 3 sets, finishing in a tie for 5th - which should be enough to rank Claremont in the top 10. The girls practice TODAY at 5:30 before hosting their first home game TUESDAY night in the big gym. Go Spartans!
