The Whoosh lost their first game in pool play 25-24 and 25-17 to the Cobras, a Tier I team from Vancouver, then went undefeated for the rest of the day by downing the A-Team from Vancouver and both Unamus teams, Whistler Blue and Whistler Black. Whoosh faced A-team again in the semi-finals, and won both games to earn a rematch against the Cobras. They split the first two games, forcing a tie-breaker which Whoosh won 15-13.

Whoosh player Mairi Smith was named as the top player in the tournament.

The Whoosh and Unamus will be heading to Burnaby on Dec. 11 for a B.C. Volleyball Association tournament.
