The first game of the 2019 season of the Lakeshore Volleyball League was on Wednesday, September 25.
In previous years, the league consisted of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School, Roland Michener Secondary School, Slave Lake Koinonia Christian School, and Kinuso School.
This year Oski Pasikoniwew Kamik (aka. OPK or Bigstone Community School), in Wabasca-Demsmarais, joined the league.
The league meets every Wednesday at one of the schools until the end of volleyball season.
There are no final games, like in a tournament. Game numbers indicate the order the games were played.
Each team played four games. With only four hours to play ten games, each game ended when a team scored 21 points.
St. Francis hosted the first set of games.
St. Francis won all four of their games. Koinonia won three.
“We did well,” says Lacey Plante, Koinonia sports coordinator.
