DAVIDSON — Keeping track of eight teams and their busy schedules kept organizers on their toes last weekend.

The Davidson/Loreburn RaiTec hosted its annual senior girls volleyball tournament on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.

Team manager Sandra Baldwin said players and coaches have gotten to know each other well thanks to this and other tournaments.

“People were here for more than just volleyball,” she said, adding that six teams stayed overnight in the school, with the canteen team serving breakfast on Saturday.

“It was just a ton of fun,” Baldwin continued. “It was just a really good weekend (with) strong volleyball.”

Kahkewistahaw defeated Elrose in the final on Saturday to take the championship title for the weekend.

The tournament began with round-robin play on Friday night. Pool A teams competed in Davidson, with Kahkewistahaw coming in first place, Elrose in second, Davidson/Loreburn in third and Beechy/Kyle/Lucky Lake in fourth.

Pool B teams competed in Loreburn. Plenty finished in first place, Eston in second, Assiniboia in third and Biggar in fourth.
