The St. Anthony’s Sabres senior girls volleyball team claimed bronze at their home tournament.
The Sabres hosted a four-team tournament last Friday, October 18 and played well.
The Sabres first faced Beiseker but fell short in both hard-fought games. They bounced back with a good showing against Hugh Sutherland of Carstairs and won two games straight.
“That was probably some of the best volleyball we played all season,” said coach Darcy Bertram. “Hugh Sutherland provided some really good competition so it was really nice to see them win.”
In their third game, they fell to Strathmore. This put them in the bronze medal final, only to face Strathmore once again. This time they were strong from start to finish and won third place.
They battled back to win, so we ended on a high note,” said Bertram.
The Sabres are away this week to play Hanna, and then this coming weekend will be participating in a tournament at Wheatland Crossing. After that, the Sabres will be competing in regionals.
