The Sr. Ardens Volleyball team attended the Campbell Invitational Volleyball Tournament this weekend and won bronze.

The Ardens opened the tournament versus a strong team out of Sturgeon Heights in Winnipeg as they win in three sets (25-17,22-25 15-12).

Next the girls took on the host Campbell Tartans and eventual tournament champions and lost 27-29 and 15-25.

In the last match of the round-robin, the girls played Regina Winston Knoll, winning 25-12, 22-25 and 15-9.

In the quarter-final, the Ardens faced off against North Battleford, winning 25-13 and 25-21.

In the semi-final, for the third time this season the Ardens came up against Greenall Griffins. In the first set the girls had a nine-point lead, eventually dropping the set 24-26, storming back to win 25-15, and then ran out of gas, dropping the third set 9-15.

In the bronze medal match the Ardens faced Sturgeon Heights again, winning 25-20 and 25-20. “Many girls stepped into new roles having two girls out this weekend with injuries. The team continues to get stronger every weekend,” noted Ardens head coach Gerod Wiens.
