It was championship weekend in Fraser Valley high school volleyball circles.
A trio of Langley teams played for Valley gold, including the Langley Christian Lightning senior boys.
The Lightning took top spot on their home floor, beating Surrey’s Pacific Academy Breakers three sets to one on Friday night.
Scores in the 2A final at LCS were 25-22, 25-18, 26-28 and 25-20.
“I believe we are playing our best volleyball of the season,” Lightning coach Carol Hofer said.
“We’re peaking at the right time. (Against Pacific Academy) the boys put together one of the best matches they’ve played all year.”
Lightning outside hitter Brodie Hofer was named league MVP while left side hitter Reid Marriot was selected as an all-star.
The Lightning win was a true team effort, coach Hofer said.
“We have a lot of firepower on our team. A lot of guys can put the ball away and we rely on that. They all played extremely well on Friday.”
All season, it’s been a four-team horse race between the Lightning, Pacific Academy, Langley Fundamental Titans, and Abbotsford’s M.E.I Eagles.
“All of the top four have beaten each other during league play,” Hofer said.
“It’s been a battle every night between the top four teams.”
M.E.I. defeated Langley Fundamental in three sets in the bronze medal game, played right before the gold medal match-up.
The Lightning are ranked No. 1 going into the provincial championships, which start Nov. 30 and run until Dec. 3 at the Langley Events Centre.
