Dover Bay boys win bronze at volleyball provincials

The Dover Bay Dolphins senior AAA boys’ volleyball team placed third for a second-straight year at the B.C. championships.

The Dover Bay Dolphins made it onto the podium at provincials.

The senior AAA boys’ volleyball team placed third for a second-straight year at the B.C. championships, held last week at the Langley Events Centre.

Dover defeated the Seaquam Seahawks 21-25, 25-20, 25-21, 25-20 in the third-place match Saturday and only lost one match at the tourney, a semifinal showdown against the Kelowna Owls.

“It’s certainly something for them to be proud of,” said Shawn Owen, Dover coach, in a press release.

He liked the way his team responded in the third-place match after the semis.

“It’s about regaining an aggressive mindset and trusting the process and their abilities,” Owen said. “A bronze-medal game is never an easy one to play.”

Dover’s Nathan Ziemanski was chosen the tournament’s most outstanding libero. Isaac Bevis was selected as a first-team all-star and Thomas Wright was a second-team all-star.

Meanwhile, the Nanaimo District Secondary School Islanders senior AAA girls finished eight at their provincial championship tournament in Kelowna.

NDSS placed third in its pool and won its first playoff match against Duchess Park, but lost to Brooks in the quarterfinals.

Also in Kelowna were the Aspengrove Ravens senior A girls, making their first-ever appearance at B.C. championships. The squad placed third in its pool but lost its first playoff match to Cedars Christian to move to the consolation side of the draw.
