It’s Grizzly Season!

The Junior Girls Volleyball team competed at home over the weekend in the Peace River Regional tournament. Hosted at North Peace, the girls got a rare opportunity to play in front of a home crowd. The Grizzlies started off strong with a solid win over Dr Kearney, before losing in 2 to a strong Dawson Creek team and then winning against Bert Bowes. To finish off pool play on Saturday morning the girls won against Chetwynd, which put them up against Dr Kearney in the semi final. The Cougars came out swinging, but the Grizzlies dug in and pulled off another win to set up a rematch against Dawson Creek in the final. Dawson Creek came out strong, winning in two to take first place. The Grizzlies finished in second, with Dr Kearney in 3rd, Bert Bowes in 4th and Chetwynd in 5th. Huge shoutout to Avery Hucker, who was named Tournament MVP. Dawson Creek and North Peace are off to the Zone Championships in Prince George this coming weekend. 

Senior Girls Volleyball was in Prince George over the weekend competing at Duchess Park in their last tournament before they head to Provincials at the end of the month. The Grizzlies had a strong tournament with a couple of solid wins, finishing in 7th place. 

Jordynn McPherson, Tristan Hynes, Carter Collins and Kane Schreiner represented North Peace at the BC High School Cross Country Championships in Abbotsford on Saturday. All four athletes ran well, with Kane finishing 28th out of 279 runners in the Junior Boys division!

Athlete of the Week: Avery Hucker (Gr. 10, Junior Girls Volleyball) – Avery anchored the girls volleyball team over the weekend with solid playing, consistent positive attitude and strong leadership both on and off the court. Congrats Avery on Tournament MVP!
