On the beach

Peninsula volleyball players fared well on the sand last month month at B.C. Beach Volleyball Championships, which were held at Vancouver’s Spanish Banks.

In the U15 boys division, White Rock Volleyball Club’s Jacob Smith – an Earl Marriott Secondary student – and Richmond’s Mitchell Jesson teamed up to capture the gold medal with a three-set victory (16-21, 21-15, 15-13) over the Sideout Beach Team.

The gold medal was the first for either player at B.C. beach championships.

In girls U15 action, Semiahmoo Peninsula squads took the top two spots, with the Mikayla Wagner and Emma Davey winning gold after a victory over another local pairing of Tessa Neil and Shayla Stausgard.

Neil and Stausgard won the first set 21-18, before the Wagner/Davey team fought back to win the next two, 21-19 and 15-13.
