Kerrobert Composite School held their 7th annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament on the weekend, and played in front of a supportive hometown crowd. Games started on Friday afternoon at 2:30pm when the host team played Unity in-front of the entire school watching closely, and continued on into the evening with round robin play.
On Saturday, games got started bright and early with the playoff round beginning in the early afternoon hours. In the championship final, the Unity defeated Rosetown 2 sets to 1.
This year's tournament featured five teams competing for the trophy, including the 2016 defending champions from Rosetown. Other teams invited to the special event included teams like Eston, Unity, Martensville and, of course, the host team.
Candice Kraft, head coach and organizer of the tournament, talked about the busy schedule the girls have for the rest of this season going forward.
"We are slated to be in a tournament every weekend except Thanksgiving. We lost 5 starters this year but it's given a chance for the younger girls to step in right away and get the experience necessary to compete with the top teams in the province."
Kraft also discussed what the team is hoping to accomplish for the remainder of the 2017 volleyball season.
"We have gone to provincials the last two years, and came out with a bronze medal in last year's provincials. It's always our goal to make it to the weekend of provincials, and nothing has changed about that."
Volleyball season will carry on with tournaments all throughout October with Districts, Regionals and Provincials starting up early in November.
