The Sr. Girls Volleyball team is off to a fantastic start to the 2018 season. The team travelled to Regina to take part in
the University of Regina tournament on Sept. 8th and 9th. They qualified for the “A” side of the bracket by defeating
Swift Current, Moose Jaw, and Langham on the first day of competition. They were able to advance to the quarter
final by defeating Carnduff on Saturday morning. This put them up against a strong team from Balgonie. In a well
played game the girls came up just short which knocked them out of medal contention. When all was said and done,
the Warriors finished a respectable 6th out of 32 teams.
The girls also sent a team to Colonsay on Sept. 9th. The girls played well throughout the day defeating Colonsay and
Allan, and splitting with Rosthern and Hanley. This put them up against Colonsay in the semi final. The girls put in a
valiant effort but came up just short losing 17-15 in the third set.
The next weekend, the girls welcomed 10 teams to take part in a 12 team tournament here in Wakaw. The Sr. Girls
split into two teams and they played in opposite pools. The young girls on Wakaw Black competed hard all weekend
and had some competitive matches against much older competition. Wakaw Maroon played well throughout the
weekend and defeated LCBI and Rose Valley in the playoffs to advance to the final against St. Joes from Saskatoon. In
a great championship final, the girls fell 15-12 in the third and deciding set. Thank you to all of the volunteers, parents
and officials for their hard work on the weekend. It was a great weekend of volleyball and all of you were a huge part
of that. Special thanks to our own Mrs. Oleksyn and Mrs. Frie for their work in the canteen and to Mr. Thibault for
officiating all weekend.
The September 22nd weekend saw the girls travel to P.A. St Mary’s High School for a 16 team tournament. The girls
played well throughout pool play winning all 6 games and advancing to the semi finals against North Battleford. In a
well played game, North Battleford came away with the victory. This put the girls in the bronze medal game where
they defeated Wynyard.
