A pair of Mennonite Educational Institute volleyball players picked up MVP honours as they led their teams to provincial club championships at Tradex on the weekend.

Ben Lieuwen was named MVP after his Fraser Valley Volleyball Club (FVVC) Blue squad won gold in the U16 boys division, knocking off Focus Boom of Surrey in Sunday’s final.

Fellow Eagles athlete Jordan Loewen earned his own MVP award in the U15 boys division, as his FVVC team beat Victoria in the Tier 1 final.

Two other local teams climbed the podium at the event, which drew 128 teams to Tradex. Altruista Silver claimed gold in the U15 girls Division 2, Tier 1 bracket, while the FVVC Crash took silver after falling to the Coquitlam Ducks in the Division 1, Tier 1 final.

Other provincial champions included the Force of Surrey (U15 girls, Div. 1 Tier 1), the Prince George Kodiaks (U15 girls, Div. 1 Tier 2; and the U16 girls, Div. 1 Tier 2), the Thunder of Richmond (U15 girls, Div. 3 Tier 1), Synergy Performance of Surrey (U16 girls, Div. 2 Tier 1), and Air Attack Black of Richmond (U16 boys, Div. 1 Tier 2).

It was the second consecutive weekend of club volleyball championships at Tradex, as the U14, U17 and U18 tournaments ran last weekend.
