Chargers U14s fourth at national championships

The Victoria Chargers 14U boys team competed at the 2015 National Club Championships in Calgary, finishing fourth in their division.

The Victoria Chargers 14U boys team competed at the 2015 National Club Championships in Calgary, finishing fourth in their division.

The club championships are considered Canada’s largest youth sporting event with over 800 boys and girls teams competing over six days, said coach Rick Wutzke, a former Lansdowne middle school coach.

The Chargers went in as B.C. club champions, having won that title earlier this month in Abbotsford, where they defeated the Abbotsford Orangemen. The tournament was Ontario heavy, with that province sweeping all three spots on the 14U podium, while B.C. fell to fourth, but was still the top team from B.C.

The National Club Championships coincided with Canada’s senior men’s indoor team hosting Cuba in the FIVB World League, as thousands of youth volleyball players where able to attend the matches.
