USS Girls basketball

The USS volleyball season started 3 weeks late, so the girls had to get in gear quickly, said coaches Lucia Lyons and Carly Green.

“We had a good core of returning girls and a lot of new faces this year. We played our first tournament in Courtenay and here are the results.

ADSS: 17-25 and 21-25 (L), Chemanius: 25-22 and 25-23 (W), Vanier: 20-25 and 18-25 (L) Friday games. Then on Saturday we played Highland: 15-25 and 7-25 (L) Chemanius: 23-25, 25-10, 15-8 (W).

“This tournament was a good tune up for the girls upcoming season. Our next game is against ADSS on Wednesday, a play date, as we are both heading to Duncan for a tournament on October 31/November 1,” Lyons said.
