The Eckville Jr./Sr. High Aces senior teams have both pushed their way into playoff births this week.

With both teams eyeing up zones and provincials, it comes down to a single-game elimination tournament which will decide the fate of both squads.

Athletic director Cody Magneson is pleased to see how the volleyball program has grown at Eckville Jr./Sr. High and looks forward to continued growth heading into playoffs and next year.

“Both teams will be playing tough games you win and you move on or you lose and that’s that,” he said.

For the teams to succeed, Magneson believes that they must continue the habits they have developed since the beginning of September.

“It is the same format as tournaments so hopefully the teams are prepared for that,” he added.

Magneson added that the continued support of the community and the school helps push these students to success both on and off the court. He is hoping that the community will come out and support the squad during the playoffs.

“Hopefully there is lots of excitement for the students and the community,” he said.
