Mustangs confident heading into Okanagan Valley’s

The South Zone champion Princess Margaret Secondary Mustangs senior boys volleyball team is peaking at the right time.

The South Zone champion Princess Margaret Secondary Mustangs senior boys volleyball team is peaking at the right time.

That’s the feeling that coach Bo Boxall has.

“If we can continue to practice well, we should be able to finish well at the (Okanagan) Valleys, which should set us up nicely for the provincials,” he said.

Currently ranked seventh in the province, Boxall said the Valley’s, scheduled for this weekend in Vernon, will provide great competition at the AA level.

“If we play well, we should have a good shot at winning the Valleys,” he added.

To accomplish that, the Mustangs must go through Okanagan Mission Huskies, ranked fourth, Vernon’s Fulton Secondary Maroons, ranked eighth and Lake Country’s George Elliot Coyotes, ranked 10th.

The region will also be represented by the South Okanagan Secondary Hornets, who will face the Mustangs on Friday in the championship opener.

The Mustangs claimed the South Zone championship on Nov. 6 when they swept the Hornets 25-17, 25-11 and 25-9. The Mustangs were led by the middle hitter trio of Kohl Linder, Brett Lavigne and Duncan Woods. The group combined for 19 kills.
