The junior volleyball teams at Mount Baker were successful over the weekend, as the girls and boys both captured the first place crown.
The girls, which have enough players for two teams, even clashed against each other for an all-Mount Baker final, with Team Black coming out on top for the win.
The boys ended up beating a team from Sparwood in their final match to earn their first place.
The young men played in a four-team pool, before heading into playoffs, where they rattled off three straight wins for the championship.
“They’re a good crew of guys,” said head coach Herb Tepper. “For the most part, everyone executed the game plan, everyone had goals they wanted to reach.”
Tepper has been working with the team for the last three years, and said everything they’ve learned is starting to click.
The tournament win shows that, he added.
“The biggest thing is their commitment to the system that I’ve been trying to teach them the last few years,” said Tepper. “They’re starting to demonstrate everything they’ve picked up because of that commitment.”
