Gordon Head’s Titans win silver at volleyball Western Nationals

A group of Gordon Head kids have become one of the best under-14 girls volleyball teams in the country.

A group of Gordon Head kids have become one of the best under-14 girls volleyball teams in the country.

The Victoria Titans Red won silver at the U14 Western Canadian Nationals at Abbotsford’s Tradex centre last weekend.

The Titans have consistently butted heads with clubs from much bigger cities, teams that hold tryouts, and prevailed.

“We collected our kids from the Gordon Head area, and we’re having success, it’s just one of those things,” said coach Ken Low, also a teacher at Belmont secondary.

Nine of the 11 players go to Arbutus middle school while the other two go to Gordon Head middle school. Those two clubs even played each other in this year’s school finals.

The Titans won the club volleyball U14 Islands last month and finished third at the provincials two weeks ago.

On Sunday they lost in the Western National finals to Seaside out of Surrey and White Rock, 25-20, 25-19.

“Ten of our 11 are headed to Mount Doug secondary next year, so they should have a pretty good team,” Low said.

The Victoria Titans Blue also competed at Westerns and finished tied for 11th overall.

The Victoria Volleyball Chargers U14 girls finished 10th in Div. 2.

Next for the Titans Red is the Emerald City Classic at University of Washington, May 25 to 27.
