MEI wins Grade 8 boys Fraser Valley v-ball title

Eagles earn top spot at Valley volleyball tournament

The MEI Eagles Grade 8 boys volleyball team celebrates a win at the Fraser Valley tournament on Wednesday after taking down Pacific Academy.

The MEI Grade 8 boys volleyball team capped off a successful season with a 2-0 (25-23, 25-20) victory over the number-one-seeded Pacific Academy Breakers last Wednesday in the Fraser Valley Championship tournament.

The Eagles came in seeded fifth after losing to cross-town rivals Abbotsford Christian School in the Abby-Mission Championship. Abby Christian was the only team to defeat MEI going into the Fraser Valleys so the boys were confident they could bring home the championship, but they would have to earn it the hard way.

In pool play, the Eagles faced 11th ranked Maple Ridge winning 2-0 (25-6, 25-14). They then faced the eighth seed from Fleetwood Park, who pulled an upset of their own, beating the Eagles 2-1 (25-14, 27-29, 15-11). This meant MEI had to beat second-ranked Langley Christian to preserve their season as only the top two moved into the playoffs from pool play.

The game went back and forth with MEI prevailing 2-1 (25-14, 19-25, 15-10). setting up a quarter final rematch against Abby Christian. MEI beat ACS winning 2-0 to give them a chance at redemption against the Fleetwood Park Dragons.

The boys defeated the Dragons 2-1 (25-19, 21-25, 15-11) to send them into the championship game versus Pacific Academy.

MEI’s Trey Smith was named the most valuable player at the tournament, with Levi Kropp and Micah Bucknam named tournament all-stars.
