It was a hot weekend of volleyball down at Kelowna City Park on the Canada Day long weekend as the Sand Series 2 beach volleyball tournament took place under great conditions.

Quinci Birker and her partner Thana Fayad of Vancouver Island won the U-18 division of the tournament on Saturday at city park.

In the gold medal match of thje U-18 division, Birker and Fayad hit the beach against Fayad's older sister  Shimen as well as Kaylie Loewan of Penticton.

In the end if was the younger sister, and Kelowna's Birker who came out on top, winning their fourth tournament since partnering up.

The pair will now head to Kamloops for the Baden Cup (the start of Team BC indoor court volleyball) next week. In August they will partner up on the beach once again to prepare for beach provincials and nationals that will take place in Vancouver.
