Vancouver's Club Gecko defeat Victoria Titans in a provincial under-13 girls volleyball final

For the second time this season, Club Gecko has put a lickin’ on the Victoria Titans in a tournament final.

The Victoria Titans Red girls volleyball team settled for silver, losing to Vancouver’s Club Gecko in the final of last weekend’s U13 Girls Provincial Championships, held at Burnaby’s Harry Jerome Sports Centre.

For the Titans Red, meeting Club Gecko in the finals is becoming something of a routine. Club Gecko went undefeated the whole year, having beat the Titans Red in the Super Spike final back in March.

In Saturday’s (April 21) final, the Titans fell in two sets, 25-13 and 25-17.

The Titans volleyball organization submitted two clubs into the girls U13 championships, with the Titans Red, made up of 12-year-olds, and the Titans Blue, made up of 11-year-olds. For a first-year team the Titans Blue finished a respectable eighth out of the 24 Div. 1 teams, suffering a quarterfinal loss to Club Gecko in two sets, 25-5 and 25-10.

The two Titans squads met in the final of the recent Island championships held in Victoria, with Red prevailing.
