B.C. champion Lions return to court, ‘will be fine’

The Lions finished seventh in the Camosun Chargers’ organized high school tournament Oct. 3 to 5

After a four-year build up to the Lambrick Park Lions’ B.C. AA volleyball championship in 2013, the school has been bumped to the AAA level.

“Too many Grade 12 girls in our school I guess,” said Stephanie Galitzine, one of seven seniors on the team.

The Lions finished seventh in the Camosun Chargers’ organized high school tournament Oct. 3 to 5, including an opening round loss to AAAA Riverside.

Though the Lions jump to AAA from AA it should make little difference in terms of results. That said, it won’t be like last year, when Lambrick routinely slayed the best AA, AAA and AAAA teams in B.C.

“We know we lost some good players, and other teams know we lost them too, so we’ll see where we’re at once we get a little further into the season,” Galitzine said.

Gone are four of the greatest volleyballers to ever play at Lambrick, the Fayad sisters, Shimen to NCAA, Thana to St. Michaels University School (where she’s ineligible to play), Jasmine Strandlund to Camosun and Emma Entzminger to NCAA.

“We have a lot of experience and we’re a lot stronger than I think people expect,” Galitzine added.

The Lions host the 2017 city AAA playoffs beginning Oct. 31.
