Sylvan Lake Lakers volleyball team smashes their way to victory

The senior boys team won three sets to zero Monday night versus the Stettler Wildcats

The H.J. Cody senior boys volleyball have finished the regualr season in second place and are now working towards Zones.

The season has gone well for the Lakers, as could be seen during the Monday night home game against the William E. Hays Wildcats out of Stettler.

The Sylvan Lake boys put up two quick and easy sets, winning both 25-15 and 25-13.

The third and final set of the game was a little more difficult for the home team, as they missed serves, passes and were all around a bit slower throughout the final set of the game.

The two teams were relatively even through most of the final set. That is until, the Lakers made a miraculous comeback.

The team was able to recover from a botched set that sent the ball sailing toward the wall near the bleachers, and far out of bounds. Somehow the boys were able to get there before it touched ground and send it back over the net.

And the crowd went wild.

After that point the Lakers were able to quickly get the last five points needed to win the game.

The Lakers and the Wildcats went on to play another friendly set.

Now the senior boys team is looking towards Zones which will be held in Rocky Mountain House on Nov. 17.

Depending on how the team does at Zones, they could be looking at a chance to play in provincials, which will be held from Nov. 22-24.
