Lakers senior boys volleyball undefeated in Stettler

The H.J. Cody School Lakers senior boys volleyball team were successful this past weekend finishing first in their games played at atournament in Stettler.

They won 3-0 in their round robin play. In the semi finals the Lakers met Spruce View and beat them in two straight sets. In the finals theLakers beat Heritage Christian Academy and won gold.

Now the Lakers are preparing for a tournament in Calgary this weekend which will prepare them for their zone playoffs the weekend of Nov.21.

The team’s head coach Wayne Halliday said the boys will be playing against some pretty tough teams this weekend and it will be a good testto see where the team stands.

“After this weekend we will have a pretty good idea of where we’re at,” Halliday said. “To get some of these wins we will know what we needto do to get to the provincials.”

The team will place in first or second for zones and if in first place they will host zones, but if in second place they will probably go toWetaskiwin.

The senior boys have been playing volleyball together for the last three years and being their final year their goal is to try and make it to theprovincials.

“We have a good shot at getting through zones and we’re hoping they get to provincials in Grande Prairie if it all works out,” Halliday said.

He said making it to the provincials isn’t easy and the opportunity is rare to get that far.

This is why it was the goal when the boys started playing together three years ago to make it to the provincials by their final year.

The only way the boys are going to get to the provincials is through a lot of hard work and this is exactly what they are doing as Hallidaysaid the boys work very hard and practice twice a week.

“They are a great bunch of kids with great attitudes,” Halliday said. “They enjoy the game and they just work hard and they want tosucceed.”

He said it has been fun to coach the boys as they are goofy, have a sense of humour and a great work ethic.

“They are pretty competitive even in practice with each other,” Halliday said. “They push each other to do better.”
