Rimbey Grade 8 girls’ volleyball team is having a great season, enjoying lots of wins

Rimbey Grade 8 girls’ volleyball team is having a great season, enjoying lots of wins, gaining valuable experience on the court, and most of all, having fun.

Coach Karen Skeels said the team won all five sets Wed., Oct. 10 when they took on Terrace Ridge Hawks, a Grade 8 girls’ team from Lacombe.

“We have had a really good season,” said Skeels. “We are learning a lot and have won several league games.”

Skeels said she is working with assistant coach Rachel Hudson to teach the girls new skills.

“We’re making them play a step up of just playing on the court. They’re doing positional playing. It’s cool to see them developing so well. I’m seriously proud of them all.”

The girls play in Lacombe at Father Lacombe School Oct. 17 and will host their own tournament in Rimbey Oct. 19 and 20.
