Brockville – The Carleton Place High School Bears won silver Thursday at the Eastern Ontario Secondary School Athletic Association (EOSSAA) Girls’ Senior AA Volleyball Championship.
The team fell to Sydenham High School 25-19 and 25-11 to take second at the tournament, held at Thousand Islands Secondary School.
The medal marks the third consecutive year that the Bears have placed in the top two at EOSSAA in either the junior or senior division, said Coach Jamie Bell.
Bell said he was proud of his team’s success.
“They are an extremely dedicated, hard-working bunch of girls and it was an absolute pleasure to coach and work with them,” said Bell.
Bell said a deciding factor in the game was the strong performance by Sydenham’s Robin Melnick, whose play proved too much for the Bears.
