The T2 crew played well through pool play and only suffered two losses in the tournament. The first was to the eventual provincial champions while the second was to the eventual silver place finishers.

“In the semi-final they faced the top seed Ducks Elite. Taking the first set in a tight affair the T2 girls couldn’t sustain the high level and fell in three. T2 was one of only two teams to take sets off of the Ducks team all season,” said coach Rob Steciuk.

Kelowna’s T2 squad went 25-18 and 25-12 in their final game to secure the bronze medal.

Kelowna’s Steffi Drasdo was named a tournament all-star, while Madison Hicks, Madison Boerner, Bella Filipenko, Aspen Appelt and Shea Berisoff all had great performances for T2’s bronze medal run.

Steciuk and coach Paul Berisoff said that they were both proud with how well the team has progressed as players and teammates this season.
