Ballenas Secondary School’s Sr. Boys volleyball team beat Dover Bay 25-18, 25-18 on home court for North Island bragging rights, but the blue and white are back at it in Oak Bay today and tomorrow for the AAA Island Championships looking to earn a berth in the B.C.s.

BSS and Dover are the only two Triple-A teams remaining from Cowichan north, so it was a winner-take-all at BSS last Thursday.

“The boys played well; kept their energy up and got the job done,” their coach Steve Dorsay surmised.

Slated for Oak Bay today (Friday) and Saturday, the Islands will see Ballenas playing Mt. Doug and Reynolds in pool play on Friday, with the cross-over games on Saturday.

The top four teams off the rock advance to the B.C.s  starting Dec. 1 in Kelowna.

“We have some good hitters on our team and a quality setter,” said Dorsay. “We have what it takes, but we are only as good as we are playing,” said their skipper. “We can’t rely on history or what we look like on paper to win games.”
