St. Paul was the nerve centre of volleyball action in the area last Friday and Saturday with many local teams competing and medalling.
St. Paul Regional hosted the annual Tazmania Tournament with 16 boys and girls teams on each side of the draw.
The Notre Dame girls from Bonnyville continued their impressive start to the season, sweeping the competition and winning every set along the way in victories over École des Beaux-Lacs, Two Hills, and École Plamondon Hawks in the quarterfinal, semis, and finals, respectively.
The stretch of great volleyball puts the Wildcats at 15-0 on the season.
École Plamondon narrowly edged out the host St. Paul Saints in the semifinal en route to the gold medal game.
The boys Plamondon squad were able to take the gold medal against the Lloyd Comp Barons, as these two defeated St. Paul and Two Hills to advance to the final.

The Notre Dame grade 10 and 11’s girls team headed south on the weekend to the Lamont Lakers Invitational tourney to take on high school opponents.
They made a finals appearance against Vegreville Comp after going 3-1 during the round-robin, and beating Boyle in the semifinals in three sets.
Vegreville had beaten the Wildcats in pool play and did so again in the final, so ENDHS finished with a silver medal.
