The Rimbey junior high girls A volleyball team just finished their undefeated league game season as the top team in Rimbey’s zone—central west Alberta.

 

The team of eleven girls from Grade 8 and 9 took on several city teams over their season as well as other teams in the school division. The Spartans consistently finished in the top four in all seven tournaments played from September to November. That includes first place in the Alix invitational tournament last month, fourth in the September RDC tournament, third at Hunting Hills, and third at the St. Augustine’s Spooktacular Halloween tournament.

 

The team placed second in the Wolf Creek A league finals as well as in a nail-biting tiebreaker game against St. Augustine from Ponoka for the Wolf Creek JJ banner in the CWAJHAA (Central West Alberta Junior High Athletic Association) playoff qualifiers.

 

On November 19th the Spartans continued their streak as one of the teams to beat, bringing home the CWAJHAA banner and gold medals, rounding out their fantastic season of high level playing.

 

The team was coached by Pat Burrage, Chris Oram, and high school student Brock Clark.
