Volleyball returns to LSS

Ladysmith Secondary School's Grade 8 girls hosted a volleyball mini tournament Sept. 25.

Volleyball returned to Ladysmith Secondary School last week as the Grade 8 Girls hosted a mini tournament Wednesday, Sept. 25 attended by teams from Nanaimo District Secondary, John Barsby Secondary and Dover Bay Secondary schools.

Ladysmith played a trio of “close-matched games,” coach Laura Mazurenko said.

The 49ers defeated Dover Bay’s “B” squad before losing their matches against NDSS and Barsby by identical scores of 23–25.

The LSS Junior Girls play Wednesday at home, Mazurenko said, and the Grade 8 Girls play an away game at Cedar that same day.

LSS won’t be fielding any Boys volleyball teams this year, Mazurenko added.
