The Crush U13 girls volleyball team spiked the competition last weekend in Nanaimo during the Island Championship tournament.

The Campbell River team went undefeated during the round-robin, played at Vancouver Island University, but got a scare in the semi-final.

After splitting the opening two sets, the Crush regained focus and cruised to a 15-7 victory in the deciding game.

In the gold medal match, Campbell River came through again with convincing decision, defeating Comox 25-15 and 25-16.

Next up for the girls is the provincial volleyball championships, taking place in Abbotsford April 25-26.
