The jr. girls volleyball team had its season opener in Peace River, while the sr. boys volleyball team had its second test of the season this weekend at the Jon Bragg Tournament in Prince George
The girls went undefeated in Peace River, and play the sr. girls NPSS team at home, 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 4.
It was a building weekend for the boys volleyball team. The tough competition in Prince George made for a good learning experience, and the boys have highlighted some aspects of their game to work on before the next tournament. While they didn’t get any wins on the court, the team had a great time off the court.
All teams have thanksgiving weekend off. The next test for the teams is on Oct. 12 and 13, with the senior volleyball teams heading to Whitecourt and the junior girls team heading to Prince George.

Male athlete of the week: Michael McDermott
While away at the Jon Bragg Memorial Tournament in Prince George, Michael won the All-Star award for NPSS. As captain, Michael played exceptionally well throughout the weekend and played a key role in keeping moral high both on and off the court.
