Kelowna volleyball duo earns beach bronze

Chloe Ladd and Madison Shanks from the T2 Volleyball Club take third at big event in East Vancouver.

Chloe Ladd and Madison Shanks display their bronze medals from the Big West Volleyfest at Spanish Banks.

Kelowna’s Chloe Ladd and Madison Shanks returned home from Vancouver on the August long weekend with some hardware in their possession.

The beach volleyball partners won the bronze medal in the girls U13 division at the Big West Volleyfest Provincial Tournament at Spanish Banks.

Playing a solid brand of volleyball throughout the weekend, Ladd and Shanks lost a heartbreaker in the semifinal to Vancouver duo of Gamache/Hamilton, only to rebound and defeat their club mates to win the bronze medal.

Since May, Ladd and Shanks have worked hard training with their coach, T2 Volleyball’s Tammy Thomas, in preparation for the beach season. It paid off with a bronze medal last weekend.
