Persistence has paid off for the Kelowna Christian Knights senior girls' volleyball program.

After settling for bronze in 2011 and a silver medal in 2012, the Knights are finally at the top of the heap in B.C. Christian School Sports girls volleyball.

The Knights, ranked No. 1 at the A level in B.C., captured the BCCSSAA provincial  championship last weekend in Abbotsford with a victory over Surrey's Pacific Academy in the final.

The teams first met in pool play with KCS emerging with a 2-0 win.

In the final, the Knights won the opener 25-22, only to have Pacific rebound for a 25-16 victory in the second set.

In the deciding set, a battle to the finish saw KCS triumph 15-13 to earn the gold medal.

"It was a real nail-biter at the end but we prevailed," said Knights' coach Rob Smith.

The Knights' Jacqueline Sellers was named the tournament's MVP, while Micaylee Pucilowski was named to the first all-star team.
