Volleyball teams top tournament

The Whistler Whoosh and Wildwood volleyball teams took part in the annual Baden Holiday Cup tournament in Vancouver this past weekend, which is a Tier I/II Volleyball B.C. sanctioned event.

The Whoosh had a strong round robin, defeating Shadow in two straight games, losing to Fusion, and then splitting games with eventual tournament winner Blue Crush. That put Whoosh third overall in their pool, and they were relegated to the Tier II playoffs.

The Wildwood also had a solid round robin and advanced to the semi-final game against Whoosh.

The teams split the first two games, but Whoosh edged out the Wildwood squad in the third game by a score of 16-15.

Whoosh advanced to the final, where they faced Shadow once again. That also went to three games, but in the end it was the more experienced Shadow team that came away with the win.

The Wildwood team was led by Meaghan Thomas, Sue Eckersley, Carolann Shiner and Laura Wetaski.

The Whoosh team was Mairi Smith, Kat Frew, Sue Oliver, Myrna Iaconetti-Bush, Karine Serra, Melanie Bernier, Olga Achiardi and Shelley Leddingham, along with coach Bill Sirota.
