They also lost three matches to Killarney Secondary 5-6, Moscrop 4-7 and Point Gray 4-7 which placed them 10th in the province.

Academic all-stars

Two local scholar athletes attending Simon Fraser University were selected to the 2015 Great Northwest Athletic Conference Track and Field Academic All-Conference team.

Maple Ridge’s Jacob Karamanian, a senior who is studying biomedical physiology, had a GPA of 3.61.

Pitt Meadows resident Vladislav Moldavanov, a sophomore in business administration, posted a 3.68.

They are among the 163 student-athletes who were awarded with the distinction. To qualify for the academic all-conference teams student-athletes must have a minimum GPA of 3.20, be in their second year of competition at their current institution, and must be a projected letter winner.

The girls battled the Calgary Renegades in the final, and won 14-12.
