The Nakusp Cougar Junior Volleyball team travelled snowy roads to get to Mt. Sentinel for their Tier 2 playoffs on Friday, November 23.

After a successful season with a young team, the Cougars were hoping for some exciting volleyball against unknown teams. During round robin play, the Junior Cougars defeated Grand Forks with scores of 25 to 17 and 25 to 10, Trail team three 28-226 and 25-9, and split games with Kaslo (25-20 and 16-25). Their scores put the Junior Cougars at the top of their pool and first place overall to face Trail team two in the finals.

Before the final match, the Cougars’ captain Katira Niquidet was chose by coach Stephanie Stenseth to face a senior Labraro player in a serving competition. With 12 teams, coaches and fans watching, the pressure was on, but Katira was one of of only four girls to serve it over.

The finals went smoothly for Nakusp, with the Junior Cougars defeating Trail team three 25-15 and 25-20, earning them the title of West Kootenay Tier 2 Junior Girl Volleyball Champions.
