Local teams performed well on their home soil during Volleyball B.C.’s three-day grass tournament last weekend during Center of Gravity at Kelowna City Park.

Teams spanning from the Okanagan, Alberta and other parts of B.C. took part in Volleyfest 4s on Friday, Kelowna Triples on Saturday and Reverse 2s on Sunday.

Kelowna’s very own team G2 took home the gold in the 4s after defeating their crosstown rivals, the Imperatively Presumptuous Coffee Makers 2-0 (21-15, 21-17). Locals from team G2 included Maiya Kiy, Jeremy Kler, Bryce Patterson and Preston Tucker.

The Imperatively Presumptuous Coffee Makers’ local line up included Jarrett Masey, Kyle Lorincz, Caitlyn Barnes and Joel McLellan.

Teams were divided into two divisions for Saturday’s triples action due to the high volume of participants. Team Practice Safe Sets won the A Division and included local high school talent, Sandie Kent, Jeremy Bednar and Ryan Samuelson.

Kelowna’s own Albert Christensen, Jonny Lee and Sam Sayn won the AA Division in a thrilling three set match against Jarrett Masey, Kesley Boroveich and Armin Hoesini 2-1 (21-18, 14-21, 15-12).

Sunday featured a mixed doubles event that has proved extremely popular in the Okanagan. Kelowna residents, Nikki Valgardson and Jarrett Massey defeated Kelowna natives, Tyler Pomietlarz and Tori Taneda 2-0 (22-20,21-18) to take home the gold in Sunday’s Reverse 2s.
