Last Friday’s (November 3rd, 2017) opening ceremonies featured the traditional Mounties marching in red serge and an inspirational address to the athletes from former university athlete and current Coquitlam RCMP Constable Laura Lytwynec.

The tournament started Friday night and continued Saturday with the top teams in the province battling through some close matches.

Most Valuable Player:

Langley Christian’s Savannah Caterino-Leger also took top spot for the hardest spike with a 69 km/hr effort.

The upset of the tournament came in an exhibition match between the Coquitlam Mounties and the High School Girls’ All Star Team. The Mounties broke a long losing streak by winning a one-set match by the slimmest of margins, 26-24.
