The Coronation Senior Girls Angels volleyball team is a very exciting team to watch this year. If you are free Oct. 25 at 4:30 p.m. you should come to the Coronation School gym as we will be playing the Provost Panthers from the Public school in Provost, which is one of the few teams we have lost to this year.
Both of us are undefeated, and this is for first place in league, and the right to host the championship game Thurs. the Oct. 27.
Provost is boasting a very strong team this year but in our three matches with them, every set has been extremely close and has provided some very exciting, topnotch volleyball.
Our girls have seen a great deal of success already this year and are one of the most respected teams in 1A volleyball in the province.
We have defeated a number of 2A teams, and when we are at our best can take on some very respectable 3A as well.
We started with the 36 team Mega-volley in Vermilion and finished sixth losing to the silver medalist to knock us out. The girls looked very good for the first tournament.
Bawlf was the next weekend, which has some very strong teams attending and the girls lost the consolation final. The gold medal match we had in Provost was one of the better volleyball matches I have seen in a while, as we lost two very close sets to bring home silver.
This past weekend in Forestburg we lost out to the same Provost public school team in the semi-final in another intense match that prompted comments from other coaches about the level of volleyball and the excitement of play.
This weekend coming up we are in Consort as the returning champion and the weekend following we are in Stettler.
The girls have had a great year so far, going undefeated in league play so far, and finishing very well in all of our tournaments.
The month of November will see us hopefully advancing in the provincial rounds.
We have four grade 12 athletes who are all starters, and without any one of them our team isn’t the same.
The two grade 11 players that round out the starting line up are Breanne Shaw and Erin Brown.
Richen Basig and Mattea Jones are the other two grade 11 athletes. Breanna Mears, Rayanna Ramsay, Sydney Kubinchak and Koryn Duncan round out the team.
