All four volleyball teams from Claremont Secondary took home the gold at their respective tournaments this past weekend.

The junior and senior boys’ teams played in an invitational tournament at Vancouver Island University in Nanaimo while the junior and senior girls’ teams took part in an invitational tournament at Camosun College.

Senior girls coach Scott Freeburn noted how rare it is for all four teams from one school to win at different tournaments.

Freeburn and the other teachers at Claremont Secondary “can’t recall any school having swept a weekend like this.”

The junior girls team – captained by Grade 10 student Ava Mann – had a big come-back when they beat the Dover Bay Secondary team in the finals after losing to them in the round robin stage of the tournament.

The junior boys’ captain Carter Munro, a Grade 10 student, led the team to victory against Belmont Secondary in Langford.

Grade 12 students Eve Collombin, captain of the senior girls’ team, and Mya Sheridan were the tournament all-stars and Grade 10 student Olivia Boulding was named the MVP. The senior girls beat South Delta Secondary School in the finals.
