The Lakers lost to St. Joesph from Grande Prairie; two sets to zero, Edmonton Christian; two sets to one, Strathmore; two sets to one, and to Eagle Butte two sets to zero.

St. Joseph finished the round robin portion in first place in Pool A.

In the end St. Joseph Catholic went all the way to the finals and won the gold medal and provincial championship title. St. Joesph played Cochrane High School, who finished first in Pool B of the round robin, in the final game.

Lethbridge Collegiate Institute finished in third place in the province.
