They Brought Home The Bronze!!!

After being delayed a week due to road / travel challenges for all teams and some venue challenges the Senior Girls Single A Provincials were held this past Thursday-Saturday in Nelson and Castlegar.  The Charles Bloom Senior girls went 1-5 in round robin play over Thursday and Friday which put them in 6th place heading into playoffs Saturday am which meant that they faced 3rd Place Cedar Christian from Prince George in an early 8:30am game which would decide their fate if they would move on for a top 4 finish or not. The Bloom squad rose to the challenge and upset and shocked Cedars Christian team which meant Bloom moved onto the Semi Finals against Host #2 Mount Sentinel  in a best of 5 match.  The Sentinels took the first set but Bloom came back and won the second to make it 1-1. The third set Bloom came from behind and went ahead and then in a back and forth tight match lost 25-23.  The forth set went to Mount Sentinel which meant Bloom was in the Bronze medal match against Kings Christian of Salmon Arm who lost to Osoyoos Rattlers in the other semi final.  Due to great games for every match the day ended up behind schedule and over two and a half hours late the girls started the Bronze medal match.  Kings Christian was also prepared to battle as they have been a small team with tons of talent as well.

Kings took the first match but Bloom was not prepared to let them take the second and third place title and came back and won the second set which set them up to take the third game and win the Bronze medal! It was a great weekend and the girls would like to thank The Lumby Valley Times, Sheardown’s, and the community that sent well wishes all tournament and watched the games livestream sending cheers and positive energy to the Kootney’s it was so appreciated and the love and support felt.
