Season ends for the Golden Secondary School senior girls volleyball team

After a season with many highs the GSS senior girls volleyball team came within two points of glory at provincial tournament.

After a great season of volleyball the Golden Secondary School Senior Girls team put on a strong showing at the 2011 Provincial tournament.

The team went in to the tournament on a high after being recently ranked eighth in the province.

“We had a tough first day with some nerves going in and ended up playing the third ranked team in the quarter finals,” Head Coach Ron Ainslie said.

In what turned out to be one of the best games in the tournament Golden and Immaculata played a best of five quarter finals. After a long, gruelling and hard fought match, the team from Golden lost by two points in the fifth set.

The Eagles continued on in the tournament and went undefeated for 3 further matches to end up with a  ninth place finish, which was as high as they could place after the quarter final loss.

“Overall I think the girls saw that skill and talent wise we are in the top five but the luck of how things went we ended up on the consolation side,” Ainslie added. “I was proud of them. They did not let that match take them out. They came back strong and played with heart the rest of the way through.

Ainslie wanted to thank all of the people in the town who helped the team get to the tournament. “The support we received was incredible. This kind of stuff can’t happen unless we have outside support. To see the town support our team and other teams is amazing because they do not have to.”

Ainslie wanted to thank businesses and groups like Countrywide Home Furnishings, Zodiac Hemp, Bean Bag Coffee Roasters, Down Memory Lanes, Ewan and McKenzie, Golden Physiotherapy and Sport, The Crooked Antler, Pic N Stick Scrapbooking, Golden General Store, Mountain Motor Sports, Selkirk Electric, Golden Installations Ltd., Bizarre Entertainment, Jita’s Cafe, Falkins Insurance Services Golden, Merc Flooring and Paint, Dr. Jim Booher Corp, TLA Motorsports, Red Diamond Family Restaurant, Parky’s Heating and Cooling, Cardison Enterprises Ltd., Moon Cafe, Golden Chiropractic Clinic, The Island, Golden Concrete, Suddwick Homes International ltd., Alpine Auto Centre, Numbers and Letters Business Solution, Golden Reddi Mart Express, Fountain Tire, R and D Developments, Golden Rim Inn, Gurmit Soomal, Golden Grizzly Cookhouse, Rotary Club of Golden and the Town of Golden.
