Vikings, Spirits still undefeated in high school volleyball

Recent action sees trio of sweeps in boys play, close games in girls action
While things appear to be settling down at the top of the Moose Jaw high school boys volleyball league standings, it’s a different situation entirely when it comes to the girls division.

But one thing remains the same at the very top of both leagues: the Vanier Vikings and Vanier Spirits are still the teams to beat.

The Vikings continued their impressive start to the season with a 3-0 (25-16, 25-8, 26-24) victory over Briercrest Christian Academy, improving to 3-0 in their quest to repeat as city champions.

The Avonlea Eagles (2-1) kept pace with the Vikings with a sweep of their own, as they took a 25-13, 25-16, 25-17 win over Riverview/Mortlach (0-3). Avonlea is the only team to take a set off Vanier in league play thus far after their five-set battle to open the season.

Also improving to 2-1 were the Central Cyclones, who found themselves in a battle on Tuesday night even though they took a sweep over the Peacock Toilers. Central won the first set comfortably 25-15, but were pushed in the next two before taking 26-24 and 27-25 wins.

Things were closer still in girls league action.

In what could be a preview of the city championship, the Spirits prevailed 3-2 in an outright war with the Peacock Toilers (2-1), taking the first two games 25-23 and 25-17 before the Toilers rebounded with a 25-23 and 28-26 wins. The fifth and deciding set was more of the same before Vanier improved to 3-0 with a 16-14 win.

The other girls contest on the night was just as close, with Briercrest Christian Academy (2-1) rallying from two sets down to take a 3-0 win over Cornerstone Christian School 17-25, 21-25, 25-19, 25-16 and 15-9. The Falcons fell to 1-3.

Boys league action continues on Tuesday, Oct. 1 as Riverview hosts Cornerstone, Peacock takes on Vanier and Central travels to Avonlea. In girls play, Central hosts Peacock and Briercrest Christian travels to Vanier.
