Club volleyball has finished at St. Augustine Catholic School but not without a fight from two girls teams.

The U15 and U16 Warriors hosted their annual wind-up tournament last weekend with the U15s playing on Saturday and the U16s on Sunday. Coach for the U16 Warriors, Darren Josephison, said that while the teams did not make it to provincials, this was a great opportunity to keep the fighting spirit of the game.

“We were looking for them to play competitive games,” he said.

The U15 Warriors won in the consolation game and Josephison’s U16s won in their division but that could have gone in a different direction. “There were four teams that were the same as us.”

He said his team played well all day Sunday, which helped them in the overall competition.

“You have to play well at the latter part of the tournament,” explained Josephison.

Coach Kara Schmidt’s U15 Warriors played against four other teams on Saturday and Josephison’s U16 Warriors played against five other teams.
