The Immaculata Mustangs are celebrating the school's first B.C. Catholic Schools girls volleyball title since 1996.

After dropping last year's final to Little Flower Academy, Brian Drosdovech's made amends by capturing the gold medal at the 2013 provincial title at Notre Dame in Vancouver.

In the final, the Mustangs took on a smaller, but feisty St. Patrick's team.

After losing the opening set, the Mustangs battled back to win the second set, then prevailed in the third by a 15-12 score to take the B.C. title.

The Mustangs earned a spot in the final after knocking off Little Flower in the semis.

Immaculata's Caroline Livingston was named the tournament's MVP, while Gemma Davies was the team's all-star due to her outstanding defence.

"Some of her digs were nothing short of miraculous," Mustangs coach Brian Drosdovch said of Davies performance. "Megan Hart should have also been an all-star based on her hitting and monsterous blocks. A special mention goes out to Lauren Spiess, our Grade 12 setter, who ran a masterful setting performance and made all our hitters look like all-stars."

The rest of the team includes: Kyra Cabral, Sarah Parkes, Natalie Livingston, Hannah Johnson, Mara Routley, Emily Haber, Emma Johnson and coaches Kasandra Palmer, Stephen Caddy and Brian Drosdovech.
