AESS basketball season ends in ‘good battle’ with CMS

Agassiz elementary secondary school's boys volleyball team wraps up year with recap

(Editor’s Note: The following article was written by members of the AESS Junior Boys Volleyball team, and run as a courtesy by this newspaper.)

First off, we’d like to thank James Wouda and Adam Sippel for volunteering their time and effort to coach us for the second year. We had 14 players who worked hard to improve through the season with the help of our coaches. We got off to a rough start losing to the Vedder 9’s in three sets and then losing to CMS in our second game.

We battled back from our 0-2 record to win three straight games against Sleese; Vedder 8’s and came back in a nail-bighter of a game against Rosedale Middle. The next time we played Vedder it wasn’t a win but it was a good game.

The next game was a very close game against CMS but we lost in the fifth set. Again we went on a three-game win streak.

The highlight of our season was definitely our comeback against Rosedale, where we lost the first two but came back to win three sets in a row. In the playoffs we started strong and swept Vedder in a best of three game. Next, we faced CMS in the semi-finals. They started strong and won the first set. We battled back and tied it in the second set. They came back two win the third and we faced elimination. It was a good battle and came down to one point.

Unfortunately, for us, they won the point and our season was over. Again we would like to thank our coaches, Adam and James for leading us through a good season.
