Earl Marriott girls claim Volleyfest title

Mariners’ senior girls volleyball team defeats Elgin Park in championship game of Volleyball BC tournament.

The Earl Marriott Mariners’ senior girls volleyball team is on quite a roll lately.

The team has advanced to the championship game of three straight tournaments – two weekends ago, claiming the silver medal at Handsworth Secondary – and last weekend captured the gold medal at Volleyball BC’s VolleyFest in Vancouver.

In the final, the Mariner edged the Elgin Park Orcas – with whom the Mariners have had plenty of close battles with already this season – by scores of 25-20, 15-25, 15-7.

In quarter-finals, EMS defeated Rick Hansen Secondary, and in semifinals, beat Moscrop.

Natalie Phillips and Brielle Campbell were Marriott’s players of the tournament, according to head coach Mark Cassell.

On Monday, Nov. 4, the Mariners will play a league tilt against South Delta, the No. 1-ranked quad-A team in the province. The game begins at 6:30 p.m. at EMS.
