MEI Eagles senior girls volleyball wins Fraser Valley tournament

Eagles defeat Pacific Academy to capture AA Fraser Valley title

The MEI Eagles senior girls volleyball made a strong statement in the gold medal game of the AA Fraser Valley tournament on Thursday night.

The Eagles swept Pacific Academy 3-0 en route to the Fraser Valley title in front of their home crowd.

MEI went on an impressive title run, beating Holy Cross in Surrey on Tuesday in the Fraser Valley quarter-finals and taking down Langley Christian in Langley on Wednesday in the Fraser Valley semi-finals.

The Eagles are looking to repeat as AA senior girls provincial champions, a feat they accomplished last year when they defeated Langley Christian in the final.

The win means MEI will have a strong ranking at the AA senior girls provincials, which run in Vanderhoof from Nov. 29 to Dec. 2.

The Abbotsford Christian School Knights go for senior boys AA gold tonight in their home gym, when they take on Langley Christian at 8 p.m.

The MEI Eagles senior boys team, who are competing in the same AA division, take on Langley Fundamental for bronze tomorrow at 6 p.m. inside the ACS gym.
