Jemaine Campbell of the High Hitters goes up for a hit during A Division semifinal action in the Tuck Memorial Volleyball Tournament at the Quatsino Hall Sunday.

Volleyball tourney a big hit

The second annual Tuck Memorial Volleyball Tournament drew 11 teams to the Quatsino Reserve Hall last weekend.

COAL HARBOUR—Jeremy “Tuck” Wamiss would have been proud.

The second annual Tuck Memorial Volleyball Tournament drew 11 teams to the Quatsino Reserve Hall last weekend for wall-to-wall action.

“Tuck was the guy who was always pushing sports in Quatsino,” said Richard Nelson. “He’d go door-to-door to make sure everybody came out. It started with ball hockey in the street before this hall was even here.”

Scared Hitless claimed the A Division title, rolling unbeaten through round-robin play and then topping second-seeded FGI’s in the final. The Flying Oolies topped the High Hitter for third place.

In the B Division, Gwasie Pawsie overcame deficits of 1-0 and 2-1 to top the Boozers in five games for the title. The Yalis Warriors outdueled the Little Indians 25-21, 18-25, 15-9 for third place.

Mark and Tammy Hunt, who coaxed Wamiss’s family to start the tournament last spring, took on organization of this year’s event, and vow to continue it in the future.
