Several local high school teams are on their way to provincials or at least to qualifying matches. The Nanaimo District Islanders, Dover Bay Dolphins and Nanaimo Christian School senior girls are among the local squads still alive in the post-season.

NDSS is on to provincial championships after making it through senior AAA Islands this past weekend in Victoria. The Isles finished third at Island championships at St. Michaels University School in Victoria; Kierra Anderson was tournament MVP. Look for more on the team next issue.

Dover Bay’s girls, meanwhile, placed fourth at Islands and will need to earn one of two berths at an eight-team wild-card tournament in Port Coquitlam this Saturday (Nov. 26).

“We’re certainly good enough to do it,” said Dave Nelson, Dover’s coach. “We’ve got a strong core of players, so it’s just a matter of them being on at the right time and taking advantage of the opportunity that we have.”

The NCS Trailblazers girls also need to go through a wild-card qualifier.

Dover Bay’s junior girls’ team is competing at provincials this week in Delta.

Dover’s senior boys are through to provincials.
