Brittany Waite and the Charles Hays Rainmakers senior girls’ volleyball team hosted the region in the school’s first home play day last Saturday.

Senior girls finish 2-2 at home

The Charles Hays (CHSS) senior girls’ volleyball team returned home this past weekend.

The Charles Hays (CHSS) senior girls’ volleyball team returned home this past weekend.

The Rainmakers-hosted event saw the team play games against Smithers Secondary School, but the team ended up falling to the visitors, 16-25, 19-25, as well as falling to powerhouse Caledonia Secondary from Terrace, 16-25, 20-25. The squad beat Ebenezer Christian Reform School 25-20, 25-12 and then defeated Bulkley Valley Christian School 25-17, 25-10.

“This is the first time we saw Caledonia. They are a very strong team, and have a very strong program up there. It was a good day (for the Rainmakers), and it was nice to have [the] Queen Charlotte team come over,” said CHSS head coach Jacqueline Jackson after the games had completed for the day.

One of the standouts from the Rainmakers’ team, wearing number 9, was Suttira Johansen.

Playing the setting position and having a great year, building on the momentum of last spring, Johansen has played with Caledonia on their club team.

The more game time the athletes got, the further their development has come. Playing against excellent competition no doubt strengthened their skills and helped ready them continue with volleyball after high-school if they choose.

The senior girls’ zones championship will be played on Nov. 21, before the CHSS winter sports schedule kicks in, with the school’s popular basketball teams gearing up for the 2015-16 season.
