HJ Cody School Lakers junior girls volleyball team spent Oct. 17 and 18 at a tournament in Canmore at the beautiful Collegiate High School.

The Lakers started off with a couple of tough games on Friday, and lost them both. On Saturday, they started early with an 8:30 a.m. game against another tough team. In the end, the Lakers won their last two games in the round-robin placing fourth in their pool and narrowly missing the playoffs.

The tournament included teams from Brooks, Okotoks, Medicine Hat, Calgary, Airdrie, Edmonton, Sylvan Lake and Canmore.

“This season has been defined by growth,” said head coach Sarah Steinbach. “With many new names on our roster and the huge leaps they have made since early September, these girls continue to impress me with their willingness to improve and desire to reach new levels of success.”
