Sr. Volleyball Teams Zones Competition

It was another exciting weekend of volleyball for the senior boys and girls teams!


The senior girls ended their season with a great weekend of volleyball in Lac La Biche. They finished strong, winning their last game in 2 sets, unfortunately it was not enough to make it to the playoffs. The girls have grown so much throughout the season and have shown sportsmanship, resilience, and incredible heart from start to finish.


Mr. Manderson’s senior boys also had an awesome end to their season. The boys battled all the way to the semis where they gave it their all but fell, 15-13, in the third set to Mallaig. The boys have shown great determination, passion, and grit throughout the season, lead by their incomparable captain, senior Isaac Potts.


We are so proud of our athletes and all they have accomplished this season!
