The Senior Boys soccer team travelled to Nelson where they remained undefeated. They tied the LV Rogers Bombers 0-0 and then went on to defeat the Norkam Saints 4-1.

The Senior Boys’ and Girls’ Volleyball teams travelled to Edmonton to play in the prestigious Panther Invitational. Both teams had small rosters which did not allow for players to receive a break. Both teams were courageous with their small teams.

The boys won two matches on day one and then lost in the first round of the playoffs. The girls struggled with their pool-play losing four matches on day one – all in three sets. Day two was successful with an undefeated record in the playoffs winning three  straight matches.

This coming weekend both senior volleyball teams will travel to Kelowna to play in a provincial ranking event: “Best of the West”. Both junior volleyball teams will be playing in Jaffray, and there is a home tournament at MBSS and LMS fields for the Sr. Boys’ Soccer team. The Rugby teams will also be travelling to Nelson to play on Wednesday.
