Volleyball season intensifies with tourney

There will be volleyballs whizzing by everywhere at Nanaimo gymnasiums this weekend. The Vancouver Island University Asics/Spank It Invitational, the biggest high school girls’ v-ball tournament of the regular season, will be held Friday (Sept. 30) and Saturday at three different gyms.

Every Nanaimo senior girls team is participating, with the Dover Bay Dolphins, Wellington Wildcats, Woodlands Eagles, Nanaimo District Islanders, Barsby Blazers and Cedar Spartans all taking the court. In all, 40 teams from around the Island and the mainland are entered.

Round-robin action goes Friday at the VIU gym, John Barsby Community Secondary School gym and the NDSS gym, from noon-9 p.m. Saturday’s playoff action starts at 9:45 a.m. at all three gyms and VIU will host the championship games in the late afternoon that day.
