LANGLEY — It was quite a week for marquee teams from AAA’s Western Conference. Two games — Notre Dame vs. New Westminster, Vancouver College vs. South Delta — produced some amazing results and equally amazing individual performances. Once again, it’s time to honour Varsity Letter’s Top 10 Performances of the Week from B.C.

Doing a double take? Yes, that is Oak Bay's resident basketball star Diego Maffia, this year the starting setter for the Barbers' Top 10 AAA volleyball team, and the leading scorer on the Bays varsity soccer team.

A Sunday read: Oak Bay’s star multi-sport student-athlete Diego Maffia shares a high school resume strikingly similar to you know who!

VICTORIA — He’s the reigning Vancouver Island AAA MVP in one sport. In another, at it’s 2017 B.C.
