In the week before last, they also played in Sylvan Lake losing all three sets to H J Cody (17-25,13-25,22-25).

“Our player of the game against Sylvan Lake was Kristy Wade, and Katrena Heir got the player of the game against Lacombe,” she said..

In last weekend’s tournament in Bawlf, the senior girls ended up second in their pool after beating Edson, and Sedgewick but losing to Provost.

“During the semis, we met Bawlf and lost a hard fought battle – to end up third overall in the tournament,” Steinbach said.
