DAVIDSON — A weekend of spikes, smashes and serves ended in victory for the Davidson/Loreburn RaiTec.

The local senior girls volleyball team hosted five opponents in a weekend tournament at Davidson School on Sept. 11 and 12, defeating Porcupine Plain in the final to claim first place overall.

Also taking part in the tournament were teams from Allan, Biggar, Beechy and Vonda. The teams faced off against each other one by one with the top two schools competing in the final on Saturday.

Coach Karen McConnell said the event was a success and noted that the girls are playing together well, even at this early point in the year. She predicted a “very exciting season” ahead.

“Our Grade 10 girls are fitting in perfectly,” she noted. “The girls are all super hard-working … I’m excited to see how much they grow over the season.”

The RaiTec visited Outlook High School on Wednesday to take on the senior girls there, winning in all five sets. In one set, Loreburn’s Karissa Rendall made 19 consecutive serves.

The team was scheduled to face a couple of recent opponents again over the weekend as the girls visited both Beechy and Porcupine Plain.

In other local volleyball action, Kenaston’s senior girls hosted Outlook’s Lutheran Collegiate Bible Institute on Wednesday. LCBI won three sets while the home team won the remaining two.
