“They won the final game there. It’s something from being in a senior tournament. The nets are quite a bit higher from junior to senior level.” Senior Boys Coach Matthew Huntley explains.
The senior boys volleyball team were in tough against some of the great competition the weekend featured. They came out as ‘B’ side champs.
“Our senior boys team had a real tough pool. There were quite a few of the best teams in the tournament in our pool. Unfortunately we dropped down to ‘B’ side, but ended up winning it… It was a real good showing for the boys. A lot of teams started their tournament season the weekend before, this was their second tournament. Versus our first tournament. We came together, and the boys played well.” Coach Huntley says.
