Volleyball file
The Riverview Royals are officially in the Moose Jaw high school boys volleyball win column.

While Riverview was awarded a default victory over the Briercrest Christian Academy Cougars earlier this season, they picked up their first win on the court at home on Thursday night, rolling to a 3-0 (25-10, 25-3, 25-21) sweep.

The game was only the second of the season for BCA, who fell to 0-9 on the campaign after defaulting their first seven games due to a COVID-19 outbreak in Caronport.

Meanwhile, Cornerstone Christian School just kept on with their winning ways, improving to 9-0 with a 3-0 (25-20, 25-18, 25-21) win over the Peacock Toilers at Cornerstone.

The other boys league game Thursday saw the Central Cyclones (6-3) go to four games before taking a 3-1 (25-19, 25-22, 23-25, 25-22) win over the Vanier Vikings (7-2).

In the lone girls contest Thursday, the Peacock Toilers remained undefeated and improved to 7-0 with a 3-0 (25-12, 25-15, 25-8) win over Briercrest Christian (2-2).

The final night of regular-season action takes place on Oct. 26, with the 6:20 p.m. games featuring girls league action with Peaccok and Briercrest playing a doubleheader and Vanier at Central. Boys league games take place at 8 p.m. and see Cornerstone at Vanier, Briercrest at Central and Riverview at Peacock.
