MEI junior boys volleyball wins Fraser Valleys

Eagles defeat ACS Knights to earn top spot

The Eagles junior boys volleyball team celebrates its win at the Fraser Valley championships earlier this month.

With the provincials looming, the MEI Eagles junior boys volleyball team is flying high.

The team continued an excellent season with a win at the Fraser Valley championships on Nov. 10.

MEI earned the gold by defeating ACS 2-1 following a 15-13 set win in the decisive third set.

The team has a sparkling record of 38 wins and four losses this season, and has three gold and one bronze medals in 2016 tournaments.

The Eagles earned gold medals at tournaments at Trinity Western University in September (defeating Langley Christian), Thompson Rivers University on Oct. 15 (defeating Langley Christian), BC Christian Schools on Oct. 22 (defeating Abbotsford Christian School) and a bronze medal at the Best of the West on Oct. 29.

MEI is ranked first in B.C. heading into the provincial junior boys final tournament, which runs from Nov. 24 to 26 in Kelowna.

The Eagles junior girls volleyball team also competed at the Fraser Valleys, finishing in eighth place.

The junior girls earned gold at the Best of the West tournament late last month.

The senior girls Fraser Valleys wrapped up on Thursday, with the Eagles taking on Langley Christian in Surrey. Results were not available at press time.

The senior boys Fraser Valleys concludes this weekend, with the Eagles one of the four teams still alive at press time.
