B.C. posts two Games wins

Vernon’s Landon Currie and Team B.C. were unbeaten heading into Tuesday night men’s volleyball action

Vernon’s Landon Currie and Team B.C. were unbeaten heading into Tuesday night men’s volleyball action at the Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg.

B.C. swept Saskatchewan 3-0 (25-18, 25-11, 25-10) Tuesday morning at Investors Group Athletic Centre after dispatching the Yukon 3-0 (25-10, 25-15, 25-10) Monday at the Canada Games Sport For Life Centre.

After starting out slow with a 5-5 start versus Yukon, Team B.C. started to dominate the game and handily took three sets in a row. Zixiao Zao (Richmond) had a very strong game.

Said Morgan Nicholas of Oyama on the Monday win: “It was a good opener. It was a younger team so I think that was a good start for us just to get used to it.”

B.C. played Quebec Tuesday night and go up against PEI today and meet Nova Scotia to finish Group B preliminary play Thursday.

Currie, a 17-year-old libero (defensive specialist) made Team B.C. for the third straight year. The Fulton Maroons grad will play for Thompson Rivers University WolfPack this fall.

B.C. was third in Games standings early Tuesday afternoon with 68 medals, including 30 gold. Ontario topped the table with 107 medals (41 gold) with Quebec second at 74 (28 gold).
