PC junior girls cap flawless season with Yukon title

The Porter Creek Rams junior girls have finished a remarkable season as the only team in the territory to not lose a single set.

Not one set. Not a single one.

The Porter Creek Rams junior girls have finished a remarkable season as the only team in the territory to not lose a single set.

They put the finishing touches on their unblemished season with the Grade 9/10 girls title at the YSAA Volleyball Championship on Saturday at Porter Creek Secondary School.

“(Co-head coach Dan Bisson) and I are extremely proud of these girls,” said Rams coach Erin Pasloski. “They worked really hard all the time, always showing up, lots of positivity. We’d have to say their relationships with each other and how they jell on the court.

“Sometimes they know what the other person is thinking before they think it. It’s really fun to see.”

The Rams won five straight to reach the final where they downed the Vanier Crusaders 25-14, 25-19.

Porter Creek took a commanding 15-5 lead in the opening set on a seven-point run on the serve of Landyn Blisner. They took the set on an unreturned serve from captain Emiko Teramura.

The Rams won their final three points of the season on three kills from Sage Brown, Kendra Peters and Caelon Workman.

“I think we’re pretty proud of how we did this weekend,” said Teramura. “We had a couple close games but we worked very in sync this weekend.”

“We’ve been playing together for a long time, so we just kind of know each other and know how we play,” she added.

Despite the challenge of playing the middle position for the first time this season, Blisner was named season MVP. She delivered an ace in the second set to make it 22-14.

“This is her first year playing middle and she’s very strong in the back row, and she’s always ready in the front row,” said Teramura. “She works really hard too — 110 per cent all the time.”

“She has a new position this season and she’s all-around a really good player,” said Pasloski. “She brings serving, she brings passing, she’s able to run really cool plays. We’ve been able to work on some really cool things this season and she’s been game for everything.”

The F.H. Collins Warriors captured bronze with a 25-15, 25-20 win over Watson Lake Secondary School in the third place game.
