The Orcas Christian School Saints’ Volleyball team traveled to College Place, Washington to compete in the Fall Classic Tournament held on the campus of Walla Walla University. The weekend tournament featured top Volleyball talent across twenty Adventist High Schools located on the west coast.

The Saints found themselves in a tough bracket against the formidable opponents of: Chinook Academy (Calgary, Alberta) Livingstone, (Salem, Oregon) Columbia Academy, (Vancouver, Washington) Paradise Academy, (California) Walla Walla Valley Academy, Mile High, (Colorado) and Idaho’s Gem State Academy.

In the first day of pool play, the Saints split sets with Gem State and Chinook, and lost twice to Livingstone. In elimination play, the Saints rebounded and beat Livingstone twice to finish 5th in their bracket and 16th out of 20 teams in the tournament.

“The Lady Saints really worked hard over the weekend. Their serve, receive and defense improved a lot. It was fun to return for our second year of the tournament and to show our progress,” said Head Coach, Breezy Davis.
