Claremont juniors rule home tourney

Claremont stops Reynolds in the final of the Spartan Invitational Volleyball Tournament

Claremont’s Gerry Peng goes up for a spike at the Spartan Invitational junior boys volleyball tournament.

The Claremont Junior Boys used home-court advantage to hold off Reynolds to win the Spartan Invitational Volleyball Tournament on the weekend.

The Spartans downed the Roadrunners 26-24, 25-15 in Saturday’s final at Claremont.

The Spartans finished pool play in second place, losing only to undefeated Royal Bay. Claremont knocked off Belmont 25-20 in the quarterfinal before outlasting Pacific Christian 25-21, 32-30 in the semifinal to punch their ticket to the championship match.

Reynolds stopped Ucluelet in the quarterfinal 25-11, 25-17 and then shaded Royal Bay 25-20, 27,25 in the other semi.

Claremont coaches Shon Ryan and Shel Kushner said they were proud of the way the team improved as the tournament wore on.

“We believe that strong serving, good passing and playing with passion was the reason the boys were successful in the end.” said Ryan.

The coaches pointed to the play of Grade 10s Trevor Copp, Ayden Ryan and Carter Cooper who stood out in the playoffs with their consistent play.
