On Saturday in the playoffs the Colts beat Meadow Lake JV and La Loche. This put them in the semi-finals against Meadow Lake. In a tightly contested match the Colts came out on top with scores of 25-23, and 25-22.

In the finals the Colts faced off against previously undefeated John Paul II Collegiate. The Colts pulled out a hard fought three-set win 20-25, 25-23, and 15-12 to win their first tournament title of the season. 

The Colts will host their home tournament this weekend.
