Vancouver, August 28, 2016 — Nissan Women’s Team won all the rounds in the elimination games  against seven  other competing women’s volleyball teams and proudly emerged as this year’s Champion of the  Fifth Annual Volleyball Tournament at Slocan Park.

First Place went to Phil BC-Jousters and the Second Place went to Kick My A’s.   Each player in the winning teams got the Migrante BC volleyball medal and the certificate of participation from special guest  Mable Elmore, MLA of Vancouver-Kensington.

The other participating women’s teams were WestCoast Thunder, WestCoast Power Storm, WestCoast Warriors, WestCoast Cool Raiders and Migrante BC.

In the men’s volleyball games, the Nissan Boys won the Championship with the Men’s Cool Raiders coming in First Place.

Migrante BC thanks its volunteer referees, scorers and linepersons, generous and hard-working members, as well as all the participating teams and their supporters.

The Migrante volleyball tournament was played in friendly ;  many of the players had  competed in the past years of  the annual Migrante BC’s volleyball tournament which started in 2012.

Aileen Villeta of the Migrante BC Volleyball Team said, “This is a good event to mark the end of the summer. We took a short break during the games to let the rain pass and while it was ‘sweater weather’,  everybody, including the children, had a good time. “ She added with a big smile, “ Our Migrante BC volleyball players were in high spirits and we hope to get one of the top places, maybe even the Championship, next year!”

The Volleyball Tournament is organized by the Migrante’s Sports and Recreation Committee with the help of many  Migrante volunteers and families
