PORT HARDY—The North Island’s future volleyball standouts got their first exposure to the sport earlier this month when Eagle View Elementary School hosted the annual Districtwide Throw Volleyball Tournament for Grade 4-5 players.

Students from a half-dozen North Island schools competed in round-robin play, featuring a catch, pass and throw version of traditional volleyball.

Sunset Elementary of Port McNeill had its game in high gear, with Sunset Team 2 posting the top point total with three wins and a tie and Sunset Team 1 following in second place with a 3-1 record. Host Eagle View also entered two teams, which tied for third place with 2-2-1 records.
