The Cariboo-North East 15U girls volleyball team picked up an unlikely win at Volleyball BC Zone Championships this past weekend.
After going 0-3 on the tournament’s opening day, things weren’t looking promising.
But the team reeled off three straight wins in the playoffs on day two to capture the gold medal.
They even blew out Fraser Valley in the finals, winning in straight sets 25-19 and 25-13.
Coach Jasen Florell said it’s very rare for a team for the north to win the provincial championship, and said he can’t recall it happening before.
The team features seven girls from Prince George, six from Dawson Creek, and one from Fort St. John.
