Coach Elena Schmidt says the players have been working on the fundamentals of their game leading up to provincials, and she is happy with how the team has progressed since the start of the season.

“A little bit of it has been fine details such as precision passing and blocking and positioning. We’ve been working on more of the details and consistency,” she says. “Their passing has gotten so much better; serving tough as well is a couple of our strengths now. Throughout the season they came together as a team.”

Schmidt says the team really turned things around in Peace River where they took first in the consolation bracket of the tournament.

“I think it was definitely that Peace River Tournament where we won the consolation draw because there it turned into we want to win,” she explains. “We played game after game. Once we knew we were in the consolation bracket we just said, ‘it’s not just play and go home soon, it’s were going to keep playing and we’ll go home when were done’.” 

The team will open the tournament on Thursday with three games, with the first at 11:35 a.m. against South Kamloops.
