St Augustine senior boys end season with positive note, but miss zones

Throughout their season, the St. Augustine senior boys’ volleyball team continuously grew and honed their skills

Throughout their season, the St. Augustine senior boys’ volleyball team continuously grew and honed their skills, and remained consistent with what they could achieve. On Nov. 20 the boys placed third against three other teams jostling for a ticket to zones.

While only the top two teams move on to zones, coach Brad Normandeau says the team still reached many of its goals set for the season. “If we saw some growth for this year and something to build on next year, I’m a happy man.”

“I was very pleased with how the season ended up overall,” he added.

St. Augustine played three back-to-back games in their final fight for zones; losing to Pigeon Lake and the Central Alberta Christian School, but beating Delburne for the second time this year during regular season games.

“We started a little slow with our serving,” said Normandeau. Delburne won the first set 2-20 but St. Augustine was able to make a comeback and took the second set, 25-11.

Normandeau says their biggest weakness against the other teams is inexperience. His four Grade 12 players entered into the sport for the first time this year and the most experienced players are in Grade 10 and 11, because they played in junior high. “Part of it is the transition to the senior high game for a lot of my guys.”
