Six players from Surrey volleyball clubs were on Team BC Blue, which won the gold medal at the 16-and-under Western Elites Championships July 19-21 in Regina.

Nicole Chevrier and Claudia Corneil of the Cloverdale-based Raincity Rapids,  Stephanie Dufour of the Seaside Volleyball Club in White Rock, and Michaella Crema, Shaylene Reimer and Becky Garner of the FORCE club in Surrey were part of the BC team which defeated Alberta 3-1 in the gold medal match.

“Even though we were rivals from different club teams, we gelled together and became friends throughout our training, worked really hard for each other, and believed in ourselves that we could win it all. And we did,” said Chevrier, a tournament all-star. “It was so exciting.”

Team BC Red placed fifth at the Western competition, and had five local players on its roster. They included Angelica Kilberg, Cara Keturakis, Tamara Clarke, Cassidy Pearson and Laura Findlay of the Seaside club.

The two provincial teams were selected following tryouts July 1-4 in Kamloops, attended by 70 players. Two teams of 12 players each were selected to compete in Regina.
