Langley's D.W. Poppy Redhawks eighth at provincials

While the goal is to win, there was little disappointment in D.W. Poppy’s eight-place finish over the weekend.

Competing at the B.C. AAA senior girls’ provincial volleyball championships over the weekend in Parksville, the Redhawks entered the tournament seeded 12th.

“Our goal was to make top eight and I think we just ran out of gas (on the last day),” said Poppy coach Greg Tener.

“All in all, we played ahead of our rank.”

The Redhawks went 2-1 in their pool to finish second and then won their crossover playoff match against the Nanaimo Islanders to make it to the championship side of the draw.

In the quarter-finals, Poppy fell to the Seaquam Seahawks, the eventual provincial champions.

The Redhawks dropped both of their matches on Saturday to place eighth.

Marla McFee earned a second-team all-star award.

Also at the tournament were the Brookswood Bobcats.

The ’Cats finished 16th at the championships.
