The Immaculata Mustangs placed fourth out of 24 teams at the B.C. high school girls junior volleyball finals in Delta. The 2012 Mustangs are: (back

In their first ever appearance at a provincial junior girls volleyball championship, the Immaculata Mustangs more than held their own with a fourth-place showing out of 24 teams.

At the B.C. championship last weekend in Delta, the Mustangs played three tight matches to open the tournament Friday against Ballenas, Langley Fundamental and Riverside, winning each one in the third set, 17-15.

On Saturday, the Mustangs defeated Hatzic, before losing matches to Handsworth and Pacific Academy.

Immaculata qualified for the bronze medal match where the Mustangs pushed Cedar Creek to a third set before losing 13-15.

Katie Spiess and Kyra Cabral received player of the day awards.  Megan Hart and Nicole Hart both received trophies for Most Valuable Players.

“Their heart and love of the game allowed them to place in the top five,” said Immaculata junior team teacher sponsor  Carmella Mathieu. “However, the Mustangs team is lucky enough to have community coaches, who dedicate their time and effort coaching and building the skills and more importantly sharing their passion for the game.”
