SHSS volleyball teams ready for play-offs - CORRECTION FROM PAPER
Volleyball teams at Stanley Humphries Secondary School are gearing up for play-offs as the season winds down.
The senior girls team is playing at David Thompson Secondary in Invermere next weekend and will face off against Prince Charles from Creston, J.L. Crowe from Trail, Golden, and the host Invermere squad for the Kootenay ‘AA’ title.
“For the grade 12’s, it’s their final weekend of volleyball,” said coach Andraya Hughes. “We’re feeling pretty torn about it - excited about playing, but realizing that it’s our last time together as a team.”
The senior girls competed at a tournament at Mount Baker in Cranbrook this past weekend and although they didn’t win any matches against the tough competition, they won some sets and played some really strong games, said Hughes.
The junior boys team will play their championship at Mt. Sentinel in South Slocan on Nov. 21.
The junior girls recreational team will play on Nov. 23 at Mt. Sentinel.
The grade 8 girls will play at Mt. Sentinel on Nov. 24.
