The Mennonite Educational Institute tennis team brought home a bronze medal from the recent B.C. AA high school championships in Langley.

The Eagles went 4-1 at the provincials, with their lone loss coming against top-seeded Collingwood of West Vancouver, which went on to win its fourth consecutive B.C. title.

MEI coach Ron Peters was proud of his team’s performance.

“Our goal this year was to finish in the top three and our kids played their hearts out accomplishing that,” he said.

The Eagles, seeded sixth heading in, defeated Sir Charles Tupper, St. Michael’s University and Okanagan Mission in pool play, before suffering an 8-3 loss to Collingwood in the semifinals. MEI bounced back to beat Sa-Hali of Kamloops 6-5 for the bronze.

Contributing to the Eagles’ podium finish were Anthony Iliev, Mikayla Marazzi, Bryson Marazzi, Karl Reimer, Cambria Wiens, Naomi Milne, David Li and Rylee Buchanan.
