Trafalgar Thunder followed up a West Kootenay Championship with a win at the Creston Invitational Boys Volleyball Tournament Saturday in the East Kootenay City.

The Thunder defeated host Prince Charles of Creston 2-0 in the best-of-three title.

Trafalgar swept through the round robin draw posting wins against Crawford Bay and two Creston teams.

The Thunder defeated Crawford Bay in semi-final action to advance into the final.

Trafalgar coach Staci Proctor said the Thunder consisted of 12 players this season with a mix of Grade 8’s, along with two players each from Grade 7 and Grade 6.

“There are a lot of keen (Grade) 6’s so there  should be a good turn out next year,” said Proctor, wanting to give a Shout Out to parent/assistant coach Riorden Bellman for all his help over the past three years.

Trafalgar Thunder won the silver medal in the girl’s side of the tournament.
