LSS ranked third in B.C.

The Ladysmith Secondary School senior girls volleyball team is having a terrific season and is currently ranked third in the province.

The school is holding a spirit event this Wednesday after 2 p.m. to support the senior girls’ team. The 49ers were to play against Brentwood Bay, but Brentwood has had to cancel due to exams, so there will be a students versus teachers match instead.

The 49ers recently won the North Islands by defeating Brentwood Bay. The girls from Ladysmith claimed the championship with scores of 25-16, 22-25, 21-25, 16-25.
