Burnaby's Carver Christian High School is going to the B.C. high school A boys' and girls' provincial volleyball championships.
The Carver boys' team snuck into its second consecutive B.C. tournament as a wild card, sweeping Chemainus 3-0 in a must-win qualifier at Carver on Monday.
The girls' team made it easier on themselves, earning a spot in its first-ever B.C. championship with a win over Pemberton a week before.
The boys have been ranked as high as ninth in single A provincial polling this season, while the girls have also made it into the top 10.
"I'm thinking people are realizing who Carver is," said the school's athletic director and PE department head Henry Chung. "The 'pity-me' most sportsmanlike team has become the top three team and is still getting the most sportsmanlike team, which I'm really proud of."
Earlier in the month, both senior boys' and girls' teams won their Greater Vancouver Independent Schools volleyball banners.
Curtis Stelzer was named the tournament MVP, while Jesse Verseveldt and Austin Mao also earned all-star mentions.
On the girls' side, Chamian Ho claimed the MVP honour. Charlotte Wayara and Shannon Stelzer were selected to the all-tournament team.
The A boys' competition will be held in conjunction with the 2A and 3A provincials at the UBC Okanagan campus in Kelowna from Nov. 28 to Dec. 1. The girls' are at Mount Sentinel Secondary in Castlegar from Nov. 29 to Dec. 1.
