The Stanley Humphries Secondary (SHSS) junior girls volleyball team participated in the Mini-Howler tournament in Grand Forks last weekend and took home the crown.
The team started off against the host team’s #1 team and lost two games to one (20-25, 25-10, and 14-16). The Rockers than fell again two to one, this time to Grand Forks #2 (21-25, 28-26, and 15-11)
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.
SHSS is on a real winning streak. The girls beat Mt. Sentinel from South Slocan in league play on Nov. 9 and J.L. Crowe from Trail the week before that.
