Fall athletics season in full swing at Parkland

Rowing, volleyball, cross country and swimming all happening on the Peninsula

The Parkland senior boys volleyball team is made up of mostly Grade 10 students.

SIDNEY — Parkland athletics are in full gear.

The rowing teams had an outstanding regatta at Crab Fest Sept. 30, as many of the rowers won or placed well in their events.

The senior boys and girls volleyball teams are competing in their fourth week of league play. The boys, coached by Lorne Chan, hosted three teams Oct. 10. The boys won two, beating Stelly’s and Spectrum before dropping their final match to Reynolds.

The girls, coached by Kristine Thompson, Tynus Mikkleson and Larry Green, split with Glenlyon Norfolk School and lost close matches to Stelly’s and Claremont. Both senior volleyball teams competed in the Camosun College Invitational high school tournament earlier this season.

The cross country running team, coached by Kirsten Dibblee and Dave McKinney,  competes each week. Chloe Hegland and Hannah Archdekin have placed in the top five in their grade level in two races so far this season. Haley McLeod, Michaela Pennell and Montanna Wright are also off to a strong start this season.

The swim team is going to the regional championships in Nanaimo on Oct 21.
