SHSS won their last round-robin game, beating Boundary Central two to one (25-10, 19-25, and 15-11).

The Castlegar crew placed last in their round-robin pool and had to play the host Wolves again. This time SHSS rose to the occasion, beating Grand Forks in straight sets, 25-14 and 25-21.

The Rockers went on to play Boundary Central in the final game and won the match 25-20 and 25-21 to take first place in the tournament.
