Viking Trail boys are Digger’s Champions
The Viking Trail Academy (VTA) Senior Boys volleyball team recently captured the 2017 male Digger’s Championship in Roddickton.
This is the school’s second Digger’s win, winning its first title in 2013. The boys defeated both Canon Richards and White Hills Academy in two straight sets during round robin play to earn first place in their group.
The semifinal was a rematch with White Hills Academy, which defeated the host school Cloud River Academy in a threeset thriller.
VTA once again prevailed and moved on to the final. Saturday’s championship game would see Mary Simms All Grade and VTA face off in a thrilling match in front of a crowded gymnasium. The match would go to a third set, where VTA was victorious 15-10.
