The volleyball season at the Middle School level has come to an end, with the East Kootenay Championship tournament held in Creston, Friday, Nov. 22 and Saturday, Nov. 23.

Eight schools took part, including Laurie and Parkland Middle Schools. The other teams included Fernie Secondary School, Sparwood Secondary School, Jaffray Elementary Jr. Secondary School, Elkford Secondary School, The Fernie Academy and Prince Charles Secondary School in Creston.

Laurie Middle School finished first in its pool, which included Jaffray, Parkland and Sparwood. The LMS Tigers played the Parkland Raiders in the semi-final, and were victorious, moving onto the Championship game against Creston’s Prince Charles Secondary School.

The Tigers started off strong, taking the first set. Prince Charles took the second set. The third and final set (which was up to 15 points) was a very close game indeed, but Prince Charles prevailed, taking the EK Championship, with Laurie finishing second overall.

The school and parents are very proud of the boys and thankful to have such dedicated wonderful coaches!
