Uppal leads Storm to finals

The Prince Rupert Middle School (PRMS) Grade 8 girls’ volleyball team was also in action this past weekend in Terrace

In addition to the high school squad, the Prince Rupert Middle School (PRMS) Grade 8 girls’ volleyball team was also in action this past weekend in Terrace.

The team was playing in the regional zones tournament. Games were played on Saturday, Nov. 14.

With hopes of a strong start, Prince Rupert opened up against Terrace, but fell short against their opposition in their first game.

Fortunately, the team bounced back in their second match against Smithers.

That win was good enough to make the final.

It would be a rematch of the Storm’s first game of the day against Terrace.

Prince Rupert got off on the right foot, winning the first set. After dropping the second set, the Storm went up 8-3 early in the third.

“This was due to Kaylee Adams-Wilson’s strong serves,” said head coach Kyla Ragan.

Unfortunately, the Storm couldn’t hold on and lost the final set of the zones tournament 15-10.

“It was a really good battle for the team,” said coach Ragan.

“The girls have improved so much since the beginning of the year. Terrace is always such a strong team, so we were happy that it was such a close match. Alison Uppal was our MVP for her excellent work, blocking up at the net,” Ragan added.

The Grade 8 boys’ zones tournament is scheduled for this weekend in Terrace.
