It’s a Shore Thing

A love of vol­ley­ball has again paid off for the Mus­grave Har­bour-based team Shore Thing.

The team won its third Se­nior Fe­male C – Tier 1 cham­pi­onship in six years at the NLVA Mol­son Se­nior Provin­cials in Lewis­porte re­cently.

The team won eight of its nine matches, de­feat­ing Round 13 Cloth­ing to win the cham­pi­onship.

“It’s some­thing we look for­ward to it ev­ery year be­cause peo­ple have kids and jobs, which takes up a lot of your time,” said team mem­ber Jean­nelle Bowne. “It was re­ally com­pet­i­tive ball and we had a lot of fun.”

And it’s the love of the game that keeps the team in tip top com­pet­i­tive shape. Bowne said the team prac­tices at least once a week, work­ing on skills, play­ing other area teams and tak­ing part in tour­na­ments.

It’s the com­radery that makes it hap­pen and it’s a big part in why the team has worked so well to­gether over the years.

“We didn’t re­ally know each other be­fore and now we re­ally good friends,” she said. “We just have so much fun, we’re al­ways hav­ing a laugh, there’s no ten­sion on the court and that’s what makes a team.”

To have picked up a third cham­pi­onship is a tremen­dous feel­ing, said Bown.

“We had to play back-to­back-to-back games (to win the cham­pi­onship) and it looked so far away, it was so emo­tional,” she said about the win.
