The Sacred Heart Senior Girls volleyball team hosted a seven-team tournament on the weekend.
In their first action the Lady Saints defeated Melville two straight with scores of 25 – 16 and 25 – 23.
The second match saw the Saints face a strong team from Melfort.
“SHHS played one of the best matches of the season downing Melfort 25 – 18 and 25 – 20,” said team coach Perry Ens.
The Saints could not maintain their momentum however, dropping two sets to Esterhazy 20 – 25 and 16 – 25.
The final match on Friday against YRHS had the Saints win the first set 25 – 21 but lost the second 20 – 25.
Saturday, Sacred Heart faced Foam Lake to start the day winning the first 25 – 17 but dropping the second 21 – 25.
The final round robin match was against the undefeated Rocanville. The Lady Saints stunned Rocanville winning 25 – 18 in the first set but Rocanville battled back squeaking out a victory 23 – 25.
Sacred Heart and YRHS finished the round robin tied for second place but the Lady Saints were pushed to third place but only by a point in the tie breaking procedure.
In the quarter final SHHS faced the only team to beat them two sets in a row, Esterhazy.
Unfortunately, history repeated and Esterhazy knocked the Saints out winning 21 – 25 and 16 – 25.
Esterhazy then went on to defeat YRHS on their way to the final where they faced Rocanville.
“The championship match went back and forth with Esterhazy winning the first set but Rocanville rallied winning set two and the deciding third set to claim the Championship,” said Ens.
Melfort won the Bronze defeating YRHS in two sets.
The Lady Saints will travel to Langenburg this weekend.
