Central Alberta U18 Kings finish third at nationals
The Central Alberta U18 Kings Volleyball team had a strong finish to the season on the weekend, coming up with a third place finish in tier two at nationals in Saskatoon.
In a strong pool, the Kings struggled on day one and lost to Alberta’s top team Canuck Dinos from Calgary and also lost in a close game against HCV from Saskatchewan.
Their lone victory from the first day came against Axe, a Nova Scotia based team.
Day 2 was a bounce back one for the Kings as they won all their games and made their way back onto the tier 2 side.
On the final day, they won their first game in the round of 16 in three sets against RVC from Regina.
In the quarter finals they beat the Tigers from Nova Scotia. In the semis the Kings lost a close three set match to Ontario’s second team the Predators in a very close game 31-29, 17-25, 16-18.
Eight members of the u18 will likely meet again next year at college and university level on different volleyball teams.
