The MEI Eagles junior girls volleyball team has taken the title of Fraser Valley champions.

The Eagles clinched the win on Friday in Delta, defeating Surrey’s Pacific Academy 3-1 (26-28, 25-23, 26-24, and 25-21).

MEI was ranked number one in the region heading into the tournament and earned a first-round bye. The Eagles then beat Langley Secondary School in straight sets on Tuesday and swept Riverside Secondary School on Thursday.

MEI defeated Coquitlam’s Heritage Woods in the semi-final on Friday afternoon to earn the right to play Pacific Academy in the final.

Emma Gamache of the Eagles was named most valuable player of the tournament, with Nicola Peters and Teagen Boughen also being named to the tournament’s all-star team.

The win improves the team’s ranking heading into the provincials later this month.

Regular season play is over for the team and head coach Jeff Gamache said the squad will continue practising until the big tournament, which runs from Nov. 25 to 28 in Delta.
