Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Saskatchewan - BY VA­LERIE GOR­DON— Chi­nook Sports Co­or­di­na­tor

Vol­ley­ball is the last fall sport and SWAC has been buzzing with vol­ley­ball play­offs this week.

If you love vol­ley­ball, you had many chances to watch some of the best teams in the south­west com­pete.

The Se­nior Girls had their league cham­pi­onship on Tues­day, Oct. 30 in Gull Lake. #1 Gull Lake beat #4 Pon­teix and #2 Van­guard­beat #3 Ha­zlet in the first round. Pon­teix and Ha­zlet met in a thrilling con­so­la­tion fi­nal. Ha­zlet won in three sets (25-16, 25-18, 17-15). The cham­pi­onship match also went 3 sets.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Gull Lake who won the league ti­tle over Van­guard (21-25, 25-22, 15-8).

The SWAC Ju­nior teams held their cham­pi­onships on Satur­day, Nov. 3. SCCHS grade 9’s (and Coach Cindy Lowe) won the girls cham­pi­onship over host Fox Val­ley by scores of 27-25, 25-23. It couldn’t have been any closer. The boy’s cham­pi­onship was in Fron­tier. SCCHS grade 9 boys (and Coach Brent Miller) won the cham­pi­onship over Shau­navon (22-25, 25-18, 15-7). Ex­cit­ing vol­ley­ball from our ju­nior play­ers!

All se­nior girl vol­ley­ball teams were at SHSAA Con­fer­ence play­offs on Satur­day.

In 1A ac­tion, Con­sul, Cabri, and Ha­zlet did not ad­vance to the play­off rounds. Van­guard/Hodgeville won the West Con­fer­ence 1 cham­pi­onship hosted by Con­sul, and Fox Val­ley won the North Con­fer­ence 3, hosted in Ha­zlet. In 2A play­offs, Pon­teix and Leader did not place in the top two qual­i­fy­ing spots. One of the most ex­cit­ing cham­pi­onships was in Gull Lake. Af­ter round robin pool play, Gull Lake and Shau­navon met up in the semi­fi­nals. The two SWAC teams bat­tled it out and Gull Lake came away with the win (2-1).

Gull Lake then went on to win the 3A con­fer­ence ti­tle. In 4A ac­tion, Maple Creek was not in the top two and did not ad­vance.

Gull Lake, Fox Val­ley and Van­guard have all won their way into Re­gional Girl Cham­pi­onships to be held on Nov. 10.

Van­guard will host a 1A re­gional cham­pi­onship. Gull Lake and Fox Val­ley will be on the road to their re­gion­als. That same week­end SCCHS Colts and Ar­dens will be at the 5A re­gional vol­ley­ball cham­pi­onships.

SWAC se­nior boy teams have their con­fer­ence vol­ley­ball cham­pi­onships on the Nov. 9-10 week­end. Shau­navon will be host­ing a 3A boy con­fer­ence play­off on the 10th.

All of our SWAC 1A boy teams will be in Beechy for their con­fer­ence cham­pi­onship on Nov. 9-10. Draws will be posted on the SHSAA site early this week.
