H.J. Cody hosts Volleyball Zone Championships

Boys and girls Lakers teams played hard all day with both winning gold

This weekend École H.J. Cody School hosted the Central Alberta Schools Athletic Association (CASAA) Volleyball Zone Championship tournament in their gym. Both the boys and girls teams gave stellar performances with the senior boys winning gold in three straight sets over Camrose and the girls winning gold with a massive win over Camrose in two straight sets with the scores 25-17 and 25-11.

The tournament schedule was packed for the girls, with the first game starting at 8:30a.m. and the final gold game held at 6:30p.m. All the girls matches played for the best out of three. Lakers girls won the first semi-final against the Wetaskiwin Sabres with two sets of 25-15 and 25-21 and kept it going until their final big win.

The boys had a shorter day in court two with the first game starting at 10:45 a.m. and the matches played for the best of five. The winning gold zone game was played at 3:30 p.m with the high-energy game setting them up to advance to the Provincial Championships in Strathmore next weekend.

The girls are hosting the Provincial Championships this Thursday until Saturday at both H. J. Cody and Fox Run Schools. The first game will start at 11 a.m Nov 23, at the H.J. Cody gym.
