Northern Pen - - FOCUS - NORTH­ERN PENIN­SULA, NL

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.
