Orangemen finish 10th in provincials

Mission athletes competed in last weekend's provincial volleyball championships

Mission’s Max Chadwick returns the ball in last weekend’s Nothing But Volleyball provincial championships held in Abbotsford.

Competition was tough for the Orangemen 15U Crush during the 2012 “Nothing But Volleyball” Provincial Championships this past weekend.

The Orangemen Volleyball Club (OVC), who practise in Abbotsford, were one of only 13 competitive and well-established teams, and after a few upsets ended up in 10th place.

Mission boys Max Chadwick, Luke Braaksma and Travis MacKenzie make up a team of 14 Fraser Valley athletes.

This was the first year the group played together as a team and due to the efforts of head coach Kit Williams and assistant coaches Jason Vanderende, Rick Ball and Ben Jansen, the Crush are readying for next year. In 2012 OVC added the 15U and 16U age groups to the existing 17/18U teams.
