Local volleyball players off to BC Games

Ballenas Secondary seniors Alex Cloutier and
Jenna Pearce are off to Surrey next week

Parksville standouts Alex Cloutier

Vancouver Island’s BC Summer Games U17 girls beach volleyball team was busy getting in some reps under a hot summer sun down at Parksville Community Park this week, and a couple of locals were in their element.

Making the Zone 6 team are Parksville standouts Jenna Pearce and Alex Cloutier.

“It’s going good,” Jenna surmised easily on the sand courts when The News stopped by.

“It’s been a lot of hard work, a lot of training of late, but we’re enjoying it,” Cloutier added with a smile. Both girls are heading into their senior year at Ballenas Secondary School.

This provinces best young athletes will converge on Surrey, July 19-22 for the 2012 BC Summer Games.
