JV girl volleyball team of St. Augustine Catholic School demonstrated great talent and skill during their Fall Roundup tournament on Saturday, Sept. 19 winning all six sets they played in their three games.

A total of six teams travelled to Ponoka for the tournament; Panthers from Pigeon Lake, Spartans from Rimbey, Skyhawks from Penhold, Voyageurs from Condor, Huskies from Rocky Mountain House and Wildcats from Devon for the day long event.

JV Queens were noticeable with their very effective services throughout their games, winning many point on aces.

Coach Nicole York of St. Augustine JV Queens said because the tournament was meant to provide a practice opportunity for the participating teams, competition was limited to round robin games and no playoffs were played.

All participating teams were awarded water bottles for their contribution to the tournament.
