The senior boys’ and senior girls’ volleyball teams from Weyburn Comprehensive School are off to provincials this coming weekend. After both finished second in the regional playdowns this weekend, they are off to try to capture provincial gold.

The senior girls were in Estevan for their tournament. They opened play Friday night with a win over Yorkton. They followed it up with a 2-0 win over Moose Jaw Peacock Saturday afternoon and advanced to the playoffs with a bye.

In the second round, they took Swift Current in two sets, advancing to the finals against Balgonie. It would be Balgonie coming out on top, though, as they beat Weyburn 2-1.

Both teams advance to the provincial championships in Melfort. The Eagles are seeded with Campbell Collegiate from Regina, St. Joseph out of Saskatoon, the host team from Melfort, and St. Mary from Prince Albert. Play in the tournament begins on Friday.

The senior boys advanced to provincials out of the 5A south regionals held in Swift Current on the weekend. The tournament opened for the Eagles with a 2-0 victory over Moose Jaw Peacock, and it was followed up with a 2-1 win over Balgonie, helping Weyburn go undefeated in the round robin. The 2-0 record in pool play also handed the Eagles a bye in the first round.

In the playdowns, the Eagles beat the rivals from down Highway 39, the Estevan Elecs, 2-0, setting up a matchup with the host team from Swift Current. It would be the hosts who picked up the win, with a 2-0 final.

By virtue of finishing second in regionals, the Eagles are off to provincials this weekend in Meadow Lake. The senior boys’ team is in a pool with LeBoldus from Regina, Saskatoon’s Holy Cross, the host team from Meadow Lake Carpenter, and Carlton out of Prince Albert. Their first game is at 1:00 p.m. on Friday in Meadow Lake.
