Ladysmith Secondary School volleyball season in full swing

The Ladysmith Secondary School 49ers hosted girls' volleyball games Oct. 2.

Volleyball season is in full swing at Ladysmith Secondary School (LSS) as students enter the second month of a new school year.

Both of LSS’s Junior Girls teams saw action at home Wednesday, Oct. 2.

The Junior A 49ers lost 19–25 in their first match versus Kwalicum before turning things around to post a 25–15 victory in their second match.

The Junior A Girls then faced off against Cedar, losing 15–25 and 16–25 in back-to-back matches versus the Spartans.

Meanwhile, the Junior B Girls lost back-to-back matches to the Spartans by scores of 20–25 and 19–25, followed by a similar showing against Kwalikum, where the LSS Junior B Girls posted 22–25 and 10–25 losses to the Kondors.

The Junior A Girls squared off against their intra-school Junior B rivals to round out Wednesday’s competition. Junior A won both matches by scores of 25–21 and 25–18.

The Grade 8 Girls, meanwhile, have been working hard and “improving steadily” said coach Laura Mazurenko.

As a result, they posted back-to-back wins against John Barsby while competing in round-robin play at Cedar Community Secondary Oct. 2.

The Grade 8 Girls followed that up by posting a win and a loss apiece in paired matches versus the Dover Bay Dolphins and Cedar’s Spartans.

The Grade 8 Girls took to the court again Friday at a tournament hosted by Woodlands Secondary.
