A public hearing on the Clive redevelopment is in the works after Oak Bay council voted four to one to move the proposal to the next stage. Two dozen people interested in the project attended Monday’s Committee of the Whole meeting where architect Gregory Damant, of Cascadia Architects, showed his latest revision to the project – the fourth iteration – located at 1510 Clive Dr. The new Clive will now have 17 rental units, down from the proposed 19, and a reduction in bicycle parking to allow increased setbacks. Owner Nicole Roberts said she felt relieved and indicated it’s time for Oak Bay to have a say on the proposal, through a public hearing. “I feel hopeful,” Roberts said after council voted. “The community and council have raised valid concerns and we worked hard to listen and to address them.” Coun. Pam Copley agreed. “A significant amount of preliminary work has been done in terms of community consultation and various revisions of the proposal the applicant has put forward,” Copley said. “Now is the time to engage the broader community in a public hearing.” Since September, the district received 39 letters regarding the Clive redevelopment with 31 opposed. At that time, council received a petition signed by 500 people against the redevelopment, along with more than 60 letters. Coun. John Herbert was the lone dissenter among council. He said the variance required for this updated proposal is still too large and he wants the setback to be further increased, especially for the east side of the proposal. The proposed exterior side setback is 2.8 metres (9.18 feet). Currently, it’s 9.14 metres (30 feet), a difference of 6.34 metres (20.8 feet). Herbert said he doesn’t believe in “spot zoning.” PLeASe See: Council encouraged to enhance village, Page A5

That’s what people say. The only problem with Blundstone boots is that they never seem to wear out. Oh, people try. But after a few years of kicking the bejeez out of them,they’re more comfortable than ever and still going strong. Expensive? Nope, they get cheaper by the day.
anta is coming to Oak Bay Village on Sunday, just in time for Light Up at 5 p.m. However, the Christmas festival season kicks off earlier at 2 p.m. with plenty of family-oriented events. The fun continues after the thousands of colourful lights, strung on buildings, lamp posts and trees are lit, with live music and dance entertainment. Grab your scarf, toque, mitts and perhaps some hot chocolate and enjoy the afternoon and evening in the village. Here is a taste of what will be going on:
All day Face painting, giant board games, roving magician, trucks from the Truck Light Convoy, Canada Post collecting letters to Santa, craft booths showing kids how to create a mini-door swag.

Oak Bay athlete Stanford all-star Get ready to recycle Christopher Sun
The kitchen scraps recycling program is part of a Capital Regional District’s mandate to ban all organic waste from going to the landfill by 2015. The ban is expected to divert 30 per cent of all waste currently going into the landfill. More information about the kitchen scraps collection program can be found at oakbay. ca or by calling public works at 250-598-4501. email@example.com
National team field hockey player Maddie Secco of Oak Bay has been named to the conference and regional allstar teams for her part in the Stanford Cardinals exceptional National Collegiate Athletic Association Div. 1 season. On Tuesday Secco was named to the All-Region Second Team by regional members of the National Field Hockey Coaches Association. Secco is one of four Stanford players to be named to the All-Region First and Second teams. It’s the first All-Region award for Secco, who was named to the 2013 NorPac West All-Conference and NorPac All-Tournament teams last week. One of Stanford’s best stickhandlers, Secco helped run the team’s powerful offence, which outscored opponents 57-19 this season. Secco brings in the award despite having missed three of the team’s 21 games to compete with Team Canada at the Pan American Cup this fall, helping Canada win
New, green curbside kitchen scrap recycling bins and catchers are being rolled into driveways as early as next week, but collection won’t start until January. The district received the bins and catchers earlier than expected, so they will be delivered to people’s homes immediately instead of in December.

Council encouraged to ‘enhance’ village Continued from Page A1
“We change things all the time, but they are not huge changes and it’s not for massive buildings,” Herbert said, before the vote. “I think this would set a precedent.” Mayor Nils Jensen disagreed and said spot zoning has its place in the community, citing examples such as Carlton House and Shannon Oaks. He was originally against the construction of Carlton House, but he thinks people need to view things from a historical perspective. “I had concerns with the Carlton House because of how it could have impacted the neighbours on Chaucer Street,”
Jensen said. “In retrospect, the neighbourhood has learned to accept and appreciate the Carlton House. We need to learn from that experience.” Adrian Blunt lives in one of the units at the current Clive and used to own a heritage home in Oak Bay. He spoke in favour of the redevelopment. “(The proposed new Clive) is an example of what Oak Bay should look like in the future,” Blunt said, adding density needs to be increased within the village. “Enhance the village instead of restraining it.” Former councillor Hazel Braithwaite was one of the 500 people who signed the petition against the redevelopment.
She addressed council, telling them they should respect and represent the view of the majority. “The units have to be livable, I truly agree with that, but you have to address that the building has to be acceptable to the (community) as well,” Braithwaite said. “I am surprised it got to this stage to be honest. You will see residents out in force to discuss this and I look forward to it.” District staff will now proceed to bylaw preparation and draft permits and variances. A public hearing will be scheduled, likely in the new year. Details of the new proposal can be viewed at theclive.ca. email@example.com

Tough decisions needed by Ferries No changes to how B.C. Ferries delivers its services will ever meet with total approval. Critics of the proposal to charge seniors halfprice passenger rates during the week instead of giving them free passage see the decision as gouging a vulnerable segment of society. But half price is still Ferry corporation a generous discount. The perk of free can’t be all things mid-week passage to all people for seniors may have made moral sense, if not business sense, when the corporation was in a better financial position, but not now. B.C. Ferries’ proposal to cut little-used early morning and late-night runs on smaller routes makes sense, as does maintaining service at busier commuter times. Some argue that any cut to service is a blow to the original B.C. Ferries concept of extending the coastal highway system to the growing number of people living on smaller islands. But those residents, many of whom commute to work on Vancouver Island or the mainland, have chosen that lifestyle and it comes with costs. Forcing the majority to pay through everhigher fares to service the minority doesn’t make sense. The idea of putting slot machines on ferries working the Swartz Bay-Tsawwassen run is an insult to passengers maxed out with the number of extra-cost services available on the ships. While revenue from these runs has subsidized the smaller runs for years, enough is enough. It’s time to stop looking for more ways to gouge the already cash-strapped ridership. With the balance sheets bleeding red, B.C. Ferries must make some hard choices. Complicating that scenario is the fact the corporation is quasi-private and serves two masters, the public and government, which is the public in business suits. As such, the need to find workable compromises is heightened. In the end, the main objective is stabilization of fares for all ferry riders. If that takes cutting some low-usage sailings and asking seniors to pay a little more, we’re all for it.
Replace B.C. utilities watchdog A few years ago the B.C. Utilities Commission turned down B.C. Hydro’s request to build the Site C dam on the Peace River in Northern B.C. Since then, Hydro and the B.C. Liberal government have simply bypassed the commission. I used to think that the utilities commission’s mandate was to gather relevant information in order to make knowledgeable decisions and to protect the rights of the public. Minister of Energy and Mines Bill Bennett, in discussions regarding “smart meter” opt outs, recently stated that the BCUC would obey the province and B.C. Hydro and do as they are told. Isn’t it time to institute a non-biased and free-thinking watchdog to protect the public interest? Perhaps one with the unwavering honesty of our previous auditor general? David Waterhouse Saanich

The question facing Saanich council is not simply whether they should turn down or approve the tennis clay courts proposal for Cedar Hill Park. The real question is: “What is the best use of this property to provide for the unmet needs of the greatest number of community members,

while staying within budgetary constraints?” Let me restate that in language everyone understands. As a Saanich taxpayer I want the biggest bang for my buck. I want to ensure that my parks and recreation tax dollars are being well spent to provide services to the community. Exactly who are these community members and what needs are not currently being met? It is families with young children (and grandparents) who have no playground area in Cedar Hill Park. Beacon Hill has two new, beautiful playground areas. Cedar Hill Park has nothing; no outdoor facilities for families and young children. Currently there are no outdoor facilities for seniors with mobility issues or persons with disabilities. Cedar Hill Park has wonderful walking trails, but they are not designed for strollers, young children or people with mobility issues. I would like to see an attractive new playground alongside groomed walking trails for families, seniors and people with disabilities. This could include a reclaimed wetland “garden” featuring indigenous species along parts of the trails. This proposal provides the greatest “substantial benefit” for the largest number of community members, while actually costing

Labour-saving machines bound to create noise Re: Noisy leaf blowers residents’ bane (Letters, Nov. 15) Leaf blowers. lawnmowers, pressure washers, table saws and other noisy machines are all tools used to effectively reduce labourintensive jobs. No one likes the noise, which seems to be an unavoidable result of using these tools. We all put up with the noise for the same reason we put up with taxes. It’s necessary. The advocate of banning leaf blowers is welcome to rake my lawn, cut my grass with a push mower and hand-brush the moss off my driveway. I’ll understand if he turns down my offer, as he’s likely too busy raking his leaves, push mowing his lawn and hand-brushing the moss off his driveway. You do these things, don’t you?

Guide dog in training, Noelle, enjoyed Vancouver’s beaches as she spent a holiday away from her Oak Bay home during training.
Sharing our journey with Noelle
s part of Noelle’s service dog training, we decided it was time for her first vacation to Vancouver living with another volunteer. BC Guide Dog Services encourages “doggy sleepovers” so Noelle learns to listen to new people. This experience helps prepare her for the day when she moves into her “forever home” with a blind person or child with autism. It was very sad for me to watch her looking out the car window as we waved goodbye. But we knew it was important for Noelle to be exposed to the big city, its traffic, its noises, and its famous Granville Island Market. By all accounts, she had a wonderful time and never missed us enough to lose her appetite. Noelle came back to us visibly matured, with more self-confidence.
She got a glowing report card from her summer host although we are still working on some skills. For one thing, she loves riding in the car so much that she is reluctant to get out. Another issue is that she scavenges for food and sticks during her walks. Instead, Noelle needs to focus on keeping her partner safe. Guide dogs are taught by using positive reinforcement rather than punitive methods so I definitely have a challenge ahead of me. As Noelle might play a significant role in society she needs to be well trained. If any readers have suggestions regarding her penchant for scavenging for food on her walks, I would love to hear them. - Tara Douglas is fostering and training Noelle for B.C. Guide Dog Services
The Auxiliary of the Victoria General Hospital is pushing poinsettias 10 times as fast as last year in its Poinsettias 4 Patients campaign to raise funds for the Neonatal Intensive Care. Already this year the auxiliary has purchased two other pieces of equipment for the Neonatal Intensive Care and Pediatric units of Victoria General Hospital: an MRI compatible pediatric monitor at $115,925 and a portable cardiac ultrasound for $90,899. “We thought why not keep the theme of the babies,” said Carolyn Haines, auxiliary fundraising director. “It is the year of the babies.” Last year the campaign raised more than $400. This year during discussion in June, they decided to aim for $7,400 the cost of a new blanket warmer for babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The auxiliary garnered some help from Victoria Hospital’s Foundation to boost the campaign reach. “They’ve kindly helped us do the posters and brochures using their communications department because it’s on a larger scale,” Haines said. “Last year we didn’t
have specific equipment we were targeting. This year we are.” They’ve targeted large orders from banks, retirement homes, Government House and even a Victoria law office. “It’s a community effort, we depend on everybody. Every plant sale counts,” she said. Nov. 27 is the first pickup, but those who want to see the product can stop by and check out a table in the lobby at VGH. “We’re going to have round two delivery. We’ve extended our deadlines,” Haines said. “We’re keeping the doors open for people that wanted to still order … Once people see the plants they’ll be in awe, because they really are stunning.” The last chance to order poinsettias will be at the annual Christmas Chaos sale on Tuesday, Dec. 3, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The sale will be held in the VGH Lecture Hall, room S263 (off the main lobby). Members of the public can visit the gift shop at Victoria General Hospital before Dec. 3 to order poinsettias, go online to www.vgha.ca or email email@example.com to place an order. Plant pick-up will be Dec. 11 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the VGH main entrance. firstname.lastname@example.org

Parenting in the age of iPads ■ TRAVIS PATERSON, NEWS STAFF
Get off the phone at dinner, dad. No texting during story time, mom. There was a time when the art of parenting was passed down generationally. Many of the traditional skills still apply, but parents today are also jumping into the completely new, and still unknown, world of smartphones and tablets in addition to computers and televisions. In some cases, teenagers are getting smartphones before their parents realize what the device is capable of. The challenge in 2013 isn’t keeping new technology from our children. It’s teaching adults to see technology as a way to connect with people and as a learning tool, and not something passive like TV that can isolate us, says Prof. Valerie Irvine, co-director of the Technology Integration and Evaluation Research lab at the University of Victoria. For some parents it means looking in the mirror at their own usage of smartphones and iPads. “Who is mentoring and guiding our kids’ (use of technology) if parents don’t have network literacy or know how to monitor it?,” Irvine asked.
Parental monitoring of phones and other device usage is a start, but parents also need to engage their children’s in the use of technology. Irvine suggests starting by the time they’re in kindergarten. “Cutting out technology is not where the world is at right now,” she says. “We need to encourage and teach them to make choices. The medium is a big role in their life. “There’s a criticism and worry about mobile phones but really, the mobile device allows connection between people. FaceTime, Skype and such programs connect us with others. In divorced households they’re great for children to connect, as well as with grandparents, and even for parents to connect with their parents for mentoring.” Though television tends to fixate its viewers, whereas smart devices demand at least some level of interaction, it’s generally accepted that all screen time be lumped together with a daily maximum. The Canadian Paediatric Society suggests no screen time for children younger than two, less than an hour for children two to four, and less than two hours of recreational screen time per day for ages five to 17.
Irvine stands behind it as a form of digital hygiene. Gradual development of appropriate use and informed decision-making through small steps is important. Making little judgment mistakes and having teachable moments when risks are small can help to develop the self-discipline needed by the time children reach the middle years. “Family values aren’t new, they just need to be updated to handle these mediums,” says Allison Rees, whose Living In Families Effectively (LIFE) seminars have guided hundreds of Greater Victoria parents through the challenges of child rearing. “Certainly we need screen-free zones, such as the kitchen, the kitchen table, the car, etc., to foster conversation.” Rees’ longtime colleague Alison Miller refers to the concept of social viruses. One such social virus is the process of letting a child who normally has restricted screen time visit a household with unlimited or unmonitored screen time. And that’s OK too, Rees says, as long as parent and child discuss the experience and can grow from it. Perhaps the child will get upset with their parents’ rules, which is an important part
of development. “There’s stories of teenagers who reach university and have no barometer for technology usage and are unable to stop themselves,” Rees says. “They’ll have to make their own decisions eventually. Be up front in conversation as much as possible about the amount of (television, Internet or device usage) while away from the (parents).” A small child doesn’t have a need for confidentiality, Rees reminds us. The more early dialogue the better. In fact, Irvine suggests to get the child their own smart device, such as an iPod (which does most of what an iPhone does but without the phone), but not until they’re school age and with limited use. “The iPod has all sorts of learning apps that can

So you think you can sew… a slug?
Now that Halloween is done and gone, I can hear the collective sigh from parents who like me, can’t sew, yet are forced each year to produce The Remarkable Costume. For these parents, gone are the ■ SUSAN LUNDY good ole days when their children FEATURE WRITER were younger, had less discerning tastes and wore anything for Halloween. Witch? Easy, wear black and a hat. Snow Queen? Fine, white and icy-looking glitter. I used to own a string of animal teeth, and for three years I suggested at least one child dress as a tooth fairy. I even said things like, “A tooth fairy, now that would be a ridiculous costume. I’d never have gone as a tooth fairy.” But because I had a simple costume in mind, even reverse psychology didn’t work. The year my daughter, Danica, was eight we started musing about costumes way back in September. “Why don’t you be a slug?” I joked and then clapped a hand over my mouth as her eyes lit up and a determined look fell upon her face. Okay. A slug. Other mothers whip up costumes like this — why can’t I? We found a pea-green sheet and bought a metre of Velcro. I draped one of the sheet’s fitted corners over Danica’s head, took a deep breath, forbid her from breathing and started cutting. “Open your eyes while you cut!” she hissed. “If you’re talking, you’re breathing,” I snapped. The shape took form; it was time to sew. I sewed and sewed and then wrapped the creation around her body. She looked like a nun in a green habit. So we turned the sheet around, made the front the back and cut out eyeholes. She looked like a sickly green ghost and I was getting cranky. “Why don’t you be the tooth fairy or something,” I suggested. “We could sew toothbrushes onto a dress and give you dental floss hair.” Then I thought about
the horror of creating that costume and cursed this problem I have of opening my mouth without thinking. “I want to be a slug.” So I sewed some more. Halloween is at least dark. The real problem lay in the school costume parade. Parents (dozens of expert sewers) would be there and my little slug looked like a child wearing a green sheet. “You know, I could have chicken pox at Halloween,” my daughter reminded me as I sucked the blood from a pinprick on my finger. “Don’t think that hasn’t crossed my mind,” I said darkly. Her sister erupted in itchy red spots precisely two weeks before costumed students were scheduled to traipse through school hallways, and Danica was likely next. When Dad came home Danica modeled the costume in progress. By this time I’d added goggles to the eyeholes, cut out arm holes (necessary for trick or treating) and cut and sewed a Velcro opening on the top for antennae — which had yet to be created. “Try something around her neck,” he suggested. She looked like E.T. “Let’s drape this extra bit of sheet around her shoulders for slime.” She looked like a soldier armed against gas warfare in the desert. The next day I found martian antennae, which gave the costume a definite alien look. I considered hanging an “I am a slug” sign on her back. Two days prior to the costume parade, Danica woke up with chicken pox. Thankfully, she was out of the contagious zone for Halloween night. So after 10 hours of costume sewing there was at least two hours of costume wearing. “Maybe next year I’ll be the tooth fairy,” Danica said. “Actually,” her face lit up, “I think I’ll be a snail!” ●

livier Clements is back home and he’s pretty excited about it. The Victoria-bred trumpet and flugelhorn player says he has been incredibly busy touring with stars of the local indie music scene, such as Aidan Knight and Justin Rutledge. “We had shows everywhere between Victoria and Winnipeg,” Knight said from on the road in Abbotsford at about 10:30 a.m. “The whole band is still asleep but I was able to sneak out to take this phone call.” With upcoming runs with the Victoria Jazz Orchestra and the Victoria Operatic Society for its run of Annie, Clements will now have a chance to hang up his hat, albeit with a busy local schedule. With all that’s going on in his career, however, perhaps the most exciting is developments with his fusion passion project Olivier Clements and Dissonant Histories, which has a rare live show and a first album release in the near
future. The band will be taking to the stage at Hermann’s Jazz Club on Tuesday, Nov. 26. The event will mark only the third time the band has played for the public. A full schedule for Clements and the challenges of co-ordinating seven other busy musicians has put the project on the back burner for the most part. But that’s about to change. As an eight-piece band with lots of brass and a three-piece rhythm section, the group plays an experimental yet accessible brand of music which comes from the seemingly mismatched musical directions of its leader. Clements writes original material for the group, taking influences from a variety of sources and writing a brand of music that’s hard to pin down. “I’ve got all these weird influences that are all over the place, and I’m trying to make music that’s not awful,” Clements laughed. “It’s like indie-folk aesthetic with hip-hop grooves.” While raised and trained as a jazz musician, Clements has also toured extensively with indie pop and folk
groups, and also holds a blooming love of somewhat offbeat hip-hop, such as MF Doom, and classical music, such as Phillip Glass. “(It’s) trying to figure out where I stand in all this,” Clements said. “I’m not trying to blend all these styles together, I’m more trying to reconcile them.” A growing dissatisfaction with the direction of modern jazz music also spurred the creative change of pace. “I was getting really tired of this idea where the band plays a 30-second melody and then everybody takes a 20-minute solo,” Clements said. “There was a conscious movement on my part to try to make this about a band … make it more about eight people working together to make these songs.” Clements has also recorded an album of the Dissonant Histories material with other musicians in Toronto, which will be released in February 2014 simply titled Olivier Clements and Dissonant Histories. With the album coming out, Clements hopes to start touring with the band and playing a lot more live gigs. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $18, $14 for students and are available at Ditch Records and olivierclements.com.
Olivier Clements is one busy musician these days, both in and out of Victoria. He will be playing with his hip-hop/indie rock/ classical/jazz band Olivier Clements and Dissonant Histories at Hermann’s Jazz Club on Nov. 26.

Goin’ for Mo
DaviD Bukach Photo
Boxers are Breif Boylesque performs its annual Less is Mo fundraiser show for Movember at the Victoria Event Centre on Saturday, Nov. 23.
it’s been just over a year since the men of the Boxers are Brief Boylesque troupe unleashed themselves on victoria with their debut in Rosie Bitts’ Fresh From the Sexy Factory show. it sold out, as did their inaugural Less is Mo fundraiser for Movember last year, and every Boxers are Brief show since. they are humongous (in terms of popularity) and are once again ready for, well, some more mo, with the second annual Less is Mo, Saturday night at the victoria Event centre. “i don’t know exactly what it is about it that makes it successful except that we have so much fun with it. i think it’s just the amount of fun we’re having on stage,” says Johnny Bottomsworth, who started the local boy meets burlesque movement. in Movember spirit, Bottomsworth is flaunting a hairy upper lip but not all members will be carrying face furniture. Part proceeds will go to Movember (last year’s event donated $2,000) to benefit the research and awareness around men’s health areas of
prostrate and testicular cancers, and mental health. “We really believe in male self-acceptance and equality,” Bottomsworth said. “Gay, straight, whatever, we’re just a very relaxed bunch of dudes, acting and goofing, and the audience can see that.” Since it started the troupe has grown in size, swelling from six members to the current rotation of 10 to 20. there are 10 performers on the bill for Saturday, including founding members BadMan throbbins and clam chowda. Shows sell out and Bottomsworth estimates the number of women in the audience is only about 65 per cent. of course, that says nothing about the sexual orientation of the audience, which is as mixed as the cast itself. But it isn’t always that way. “one guy slammed his beer bottle down and left,” says Bottomsworth of one of their less positive reviews. “But i just read a study that said the more homophobic you are, the closer you are to being homosexual. We’re totally secure with ourselves. Rehearsal has become a positive place for us where we can be ourselves. the only rule is if you want to be on the team you have to come to rehearsal.” Doors at 7, show at 7:30 p.m., Saturday (Nov. 23) at the victoria Event centre, 1415 Broad. tickets are $20, available at Lyle’s Records or online at boxersarebrief.ca.
“I recommend Vitamin C and Lysine for Heart Health” W. Gifford-Jones, MD Fourteen years ago following my own coronary attack I decided to follow the research of Dr. Linus Pauling, Professor Williams Stehbens and Dr. Sydney Bush and take high doses of vitamin C plus lysine. I am turning 90 soon and I am glad I did! Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel Prize winner, was ignored for reporting that large amounts of vitamin C and lysine are needed to prevent coronary attacks. Twenty-five years ago Pauling reported that animals make vitamin C but humans do not and must supplement this important vitamin. Lysine must also be supplemented. Vitamin C is required to manufacture healthy collagen, the glue that holds coronary cells together, just like mortar is needed for bricks. Lysine, like steel rods in cement, makes collagen stronger. Pauling claimed it takes a mere 10 milligrams of vitamin C to prevent scurvy, but several thousand to prevent heart attack. Dr. William Stehbens, Professor of Anatomy at Auckland University in New Zealand emphasized that coronary arteries are under more pressure than any other arteries in the body. After all, they’re situated in the heart’s muscle, not in the big toe. Moreover they’re under constant pressure while the heart beats 100,000 times every 24 hours, or 37 million times a year, and 2.2 billion times if you live to 70 years of age. Without sufficient vitamin C and lysine this constant pounding causes minute cracks in collagen, resulting in blood clots and possible death, or a weakened artery can break, causing a stroke. Dr. Sydney Bush, an English researcher, has now proven that vitamin C and lysine can reverse atherosclerosis. Bush took retinal photographs, then started his patients on high doses of vitamin C and lysine. One year later new pictures showed atherosclerosis had regressed in retinal arteries.

The Belmont Bulldogs and Oak Bay Bays are headed to North Vancouver this weekend to compete in a six-team wild card tournament for the final two berths at the AAAA Senior Girls Volleyball Championships in Penticton, Nov. 28 to 30. The two teams earned the entry after the host Bulldogs finished second at the Senior Girls
AAAA Island Volleyball Championship and the Bays finished third. The Bulldogs lost in the final to the Vanier Towhees, Island winners for the third consecutive year. Vanier won in straight sets, 25-21, 25-23, 25-20 and qualiied for provincials. “Vanier is ranked No. 8 in the province (tops on the Island) and proved to have a little more firepower than Belmont,” said Bulldogs coach Mike Toakley. “The Bulldogs (actually) lead Vanier at some point in all three games but were unable to push through for a win.”
The Bays defeated Claremont for third in a tight finish as Oak Bay won the final set tie-breaker 17-15. The wild-card tournament is Saturday, Nov. 23, at North Vancouver’s Handsworth secondary. Vanier’s Megan Ireland was named the AAAA Island tournament MVP. The tournament all-stars were dominated by the top four teams: Carly Guenter (Vanier), Kiana Pomponio (Belmont), Tamara Bonsdorf (Belmont), Asia Rattigan (Oak Bay), Haley Cabral (Claremont), Alena Holyk (Dover Bay). firstname.lastname@example.org
Reynolds’ run lost in the mix Travis Paterson
Provincials in Nov. 27 to 30 in Kelowna, the Roadrunners were warmed up and confident going The Reynolds Roadrunners into the semifinal versus the Bulldogs. Reynare in the midst olds took the first of one of its best two sets 25-21 senior boys voland 25-20, but leyball seasons but dropped the next it’s going under three 22-25, 23-25 the radar with the and 12-15. Island champion “We were playOak Bay Barbers ing really strong looking to win a (against Belmont), third straight B.C. maybe aftertitle. Add to that the wards we were a Belmont Bulldogs’ bit surprised we tremendous year, in did that well,” which they’ve chalReynolds player lenged and beat the Alexis Duval Alexis Duval said. Barbers, and the Roadrunners are quietly the “Before the game we probably didn’t the think we’d come that third best team on the Island. Third is how they finished close, so it’s disappointing.” Later that night the Roadrunat the AAA Island Senior Boys Championships at Oak Bay on ners bounced back and defeated Saturday (Nov. 16). But it was Dover Bay in four sets, including nearly a trip to the Island final, a hair-raising third set, 32-30, to as the Roadrunners fell just finish third at Islands. Most important is the Roadshy of a colossal upset in the semifinal. Having already beat runners spot at provincials, the Claremont Spartans in the Duval said. “We were happy to win Saturday morning quarterfinal, and thereby clinched a spot at (against Claremont). It’s great the AAA Senior Boys Volleyball to finally go to provincials. Last
year we were close, fourth at Islands.” The 6-foot-3 power hitter was named to the AAA Island second all-star team. Duval is a net threat for Reynolds and has been part of the Roadrunner’s biggest season in the recent era, though he’s even more promising as a provincial level badminton player. “Volleyball’s really fun right now so I don’t mind that it’s taking a lot of time out training for badminton. The lead up from all the practices we’ve had, (Islands) was time to play our best volleyball. If we can play our best volleyball at provincials we’ll be happy with that,” Duval said. Reynolds has shown flashes of brilliance this season, the biggest coming back in September when they won the University of B.C. Invitational, topping a field of 40 teams. The team is led by Duval up front and a core of strong Grade 11s around the talented setter, David Lee. Duval predicts this team should be just as good, if not better, next year. email@example.com
