The Lambrick Park Lions kicked off the tournament season at the top women’s high school volleyball team from Victoria at the Camosun College high school event during Thanksgiving.
The AA Lions, ranked No. 9 in B.C., fell to the No. 2 ranked AAAA team South Delta in the final. Oak Bay High (AAAA) finished third.
Back to captain the Lions this year is Grade 11 Emily Wong, who has been with the team for its past two silver medal runs at the AA girls provincials.
“It was our third straight year making it to the final,” said Lions coach Chris Koutougus, “we lost but we’re happy to be playing at that level.”
The Camosun Chargers volleyball teams open the PacWest season tonight (Oct. 12) and tomorrow vs. the V.I.U. Mariners, women at 6 and men at 8 p.m. both nights.
