Barbers a cut above: Oak Bay win boys Island volleyball championship

There were no surprises in the AAA boys Island finals as the host Oak Bay Barbers defeated the Reynolds Roadrunners in the final, 25-17, 25-11, 25-21, Nov. 19.

It was a rematch of the previous week’s lower Island final, which ended in the same result.

The Barbers are a favourite to win the provincials with heaps of talent, including the Island championship tournament MVP Nick Stefanakis, four players on the first all-star team, Ryan Marcellus, Alex Swiatlowski, Elion Wong and Lars Bornemann, and one more, Leon Young, on the second all-star team.

Reynolds’ Gabe Duval and Zach Mitchner were also named to the Island’s first all-star team.

Parksville’s Ballenas defeated Claremont in the bronze medal final 25-23, 25-23, 16-25, 25-21.

All four teams, Oak Bay, Reynolds, Ballenas and Claremont, qualify for the AAA B.C.s from Nov. 30 to Dec. 3 in Kelowna.

Belmont finished fifth at Islands, Dover Bay sixth, Mount Doug in seventh and Stelly’s in eighth.
