THE PRINCESS MARGARET Mustangs senior girls volleyball team season is over after they failed to qualify for the AA provincial championship.

Mustangs miss provincials

The Princess Margaret Mustangs senior volleyball teams fell short of qualifying for the provincial championships.

The volleyball seasons for the Maggie Mustangs senior squads are over.

Playing in Oliver, the senior boys opened by losing to the host Hornets 25-22 and 25-20.  Mustangs coach Rich Corrie said that put them in a “do or die” quarter-final match against Vernon’s Seaton Sonics. They lost that match in three close sets.

“Reece Haberstock, our setter, controlled our offence, distributing the ball well to a variety of hitters,” said Corrie.  “Todd Corrie led the team in kills and served well. Defensively we were lead by our libero, Jivraj Grewal, who set the tone with his intensity. Bottom line, we made too many errors and continued our inconsistent play. “

Corrie added that his team did not fulfil its potential and had the ability to qualify for provincials.

The senior girls struggled early after a morning of travel to Kamloops and lost matches in three close sets. They did pick up a win against Kamloops’ Valleyview, the finalist at the Valley Championships.

“Unfortunately due to a tie with Summerland, we were not able to continue on and make it to provincials,” said Mustangs coach Katie Reum, who took a positive from them finishing the weekend with a win over Vernon’s Kalamalka.
