JV GIRLS VOLLEYBALL
On Wednesday the girls played the Mustangs from George McDougall. With some very tough serving the JV’s were able to beat the Mustangs in 3 straight sets. It was a very hard fought game, and great to see the girls come back so strong after a loss from the week before. This weekend was a great first tournament for the JV girls. Every game was very hard fought and more exciting than the previous match as the tournament went on. The girls won both games on Friday against Bert Church and Strathmore, both matches going to 3 sets. On Saturday morning the girls came out very strong right away and won both the morning matches as well against Canmore and Strathcona Tweedsmuir in 2 straight matches. We finished 1st place in our pool and had a bye to semi-finals where the girls unfortunately lost to a very tough Three Hills squad. The young Lakers definitely made a name for themselves and played some very good volleyball over the whole weekend. The JV’s were more than competitive with all our competition over the weekend and never gave up at any point, this ultimately led to the success we had.
The Lady Lakers’ soccer team had another great week . The Lakers posted two wins over Springbank last week. The team posted a 6-1 win in league play with goals by Natasha Gayle, Anja Meier, Shalaine Sedres and Amy Krusina. On Thursday the girls had to work hard to post a 2-1 shootout victory. Best of luck in semi-final playoff on Tuesday.
