Owls repeat as Okanagan girls champs

Nine straight 4A girls volleyball title for KSS thanks to win over Boucherie in final

Make it nine in a row and counting for the Kelowna Owls.

The KSS squad defeated the host Mt. Boucherie Bears Saturday afternoon to win its ninth consecutive Okanagan Valley girls AAAA volleyball title.

The Owls, ranked fifth in the province, swept the championship match in three sets, downing the Bears in convincing style 25-15, 25-16 and 25-14.

“The key to the match was the great play of all 14 Owls that stepped on the floor, making it impossible for the Bears to see any light,” said Owls coach Tony Sodaro, who team defeated RSS in the semifinals. “The KSS middle attack was ruthless all match long, with several huge kills that thundered off the Bears home floor.”

Four members of the Owls were named to the valley tournament’s all-star team—Sadie Taylor Parks, Sam Temme, Quincy Birker and Jane Filipiak.

Two Bears, Avery Gamell and Alyssa Liegman, also earned all-star nods.

Both the Owls and Bears will head to the BC. girls AAAA championship Dec. 3 to 5 at Dover Bay Secondary in Victoria.

The Owls are: Jayne Reid, Sadie Taylor Parks, Sarah Watson, Sam Temme, Quinci Birker , Elli McCarthy, Zovia Wasyluk, Denika Widmer, Brooklyn Norman, Natalie Demers, Bianca Raiva, Janel Filipiak, Sandie Kent and Carley Tremblay.

The head coach is Tony Sodaro, and assistants are Alexa Eger and Dennis Tetreau
