Sylvan Lakers Morgan Lockyer and Erin Matthews were in Calgary for their first Alberta Beach Volleyball league tournament for the season, the weekend of May 31st.
They went into this tournament with only one practice under their belts.
(They wanted to say a special thanks to Coach Wayne Halliday for getting them on the court before they went.)
They only won one game out of five but defiantly got better with each game. They placed about 22nd out of 28 teams and had smiles on their faces the whole time.
The girls participated in Jr. High Beach Volleyball Provincials, representing H. J. Cody Lakers at John Fry Park in Edmonton on the weekend competing against 38 teams from all over Alberta.
Morgan and Erin started the tournament winning their first three games last Friday. On Saturday they came up a little short losing the first game 17-25 and then a really close second game losing 24-26 to get knocked out of the playoffs.
They finished the tournament in about 14th out of the 38 teams. This was a great showing from these two girls, who are steadily improving their game with each practice and tournament.
Good luck to all the teams that will be competing for Sylvan Lake Wave Beach Volleyball Club at the next tournament in Edmonton on June 21st.
