YRHS comes up short at regionals

The Yorkton Regional High School Raiders senior boys’ volleyball team hosted the 5A Boys Regionals on the weekend, hoping to gain one of three spots in the Provincial finals. The local team took on Estevan, Weyburn, Swift Current and Balgonie.

The day started with the Yorkton squad taking on Estevan. YRHS came out on top during the game, winning the contest in straight sets. They then took on Balgonie, winning that contest two sets to one.

Yorkton then took on Swift Current, but lost two sets to one. The final match of the day saw Yorkton take on Weyburn, and they lost that contest as well, losing two games to one yet again.

Their record of two and two put them at fourth in the tournament, which meant that the team just missed a berth in the provincials.

Coach Dion Pfeifer said that in spite of not having the result they wanted, the team played well all weekend, and just needed a good break in some close games.

The team is quite young, with only two players  - Noah Pfeifer and Evan Krasowski - graduating this year. Pfeifer congratulates them on their successful volleyball careers, and said that they will be missed on the team.
The rest of the team, including four starters in grade 10, will have a bright future Pfeifer said.
