West Shore beach volleyball team duo take silver in B.C.

Charlie Holborn and Savannah Purdy, both 13, competed in the B.C. championships for beach volleyball in Parksville, Aug. 10 and 11.

The last competition for a beach volleyball pair ended with a silver lining.

Charlie Holborn and Savannah Purdy, both 13, bumped, spiked and set their way to the B.C. championships for beach volleyball in Parksville, Aug. 10 and 11.

The teens got in the finals with six wins to earn a bye in their pool.

The Island players had a tough, intense match against their Mainland opponents and finished the championships in second place.

Purdy and Holborn had to split up their beach duo, because Holborn and her family moved to Ottawa right after the championship.
