Mission senior girls volleyball battling for bronze

Roadrunners taking on Lord Tweedsmuir for third place on home court tonight (Thursday)

The Mission Roadrunners senior girls volleyball team will play for Fraser Valley bronze tonight (Thursday) at 6 p.m.

The club, competing in the Fraser Valley AAAA tournament, opened with a win over Maple Ridge on Tuesday and followed that up with a 3-0 (25-17, 25-15 and 25-16) win on Wednesday over South Delta.

Mission then fell later on Wednesday to Earl Marriott in the semi-final game to drop to today’s bronze game.

The Roadrunners will battle Surrey’s Lord Tweedsmuir at the Mission Secondary School gym for third place. The game tips off at 6 p.m.

The strong showing in the tournament has also punched Mission’s ticket to the AAAA volleyball provincials, which take place at the Langley Events Centre from Nov. 29 to Dec. 2.
