Mission Roadrunners win Eastern Valley banner

Senior girls volleyball team heads into provincials ranked fourth in B.C.

The Mission Roadrunners senior girls volleyball team made history last week.

For the first time ever, the club captured the Eastern Valley AAAA girls championship banner to cap off an undefeated season.

The Roadrunners defeated Sardis in the tournament finals inside the Mission Secondary School gym on Nov. 14, and didn’t lose a set throughout the Eastern Valley playoffs run.

Head coach Andrew Hale praised the play of his team in the clutch.

“We were led by tournament most-valuable-player Mo Likness, tournament all-stars Erin O’Brien and Hayley Raffan, and the steady play of Sarah Reid, Delaney Spink and Hannah Johnston,” he said.

The Roadrunners have now been seeded fourth in the AAAA senior girls provincial championships, which run from Nov. 28 to 30 at the Langley Events Centre.

Mission has been slotted in Pool D at the provincials and will be competing in the round robin against Lord Tweedsmuir, Vancouver Tech and Pinetree.

The Roadrunners open the tournament at 11 a.m. on Nov. 28 against Vancouver Tech. The club then battles Pinetree at 2:45 p.m. and Lord Tweedsmuir at 6:30 p.m. The playoffs begin on Nov. 29, with the provincial champion crowned on Nov. 30.
