The Under 15 women’s SunDogs volleyball team, led by Mike Carefoot, rolled to a tournament win March 15 at the Moose Jaw Element 15U volleyball tournament.


In what was probably just as big testament to resilience and fitness as skill, the Sundogs won all six matches culminating in a 25-21, 14-25, 15-5 win over their hosts (Element Panthers 15) in the final match.
They also beat the hosts to open the tourney 25-20, 19-25, 16-14.
Scores in their other matches included: 25-15, 26-24 over Hafford; 25-10, 25-15 QCUC Black (Regina); 25-19, 25-17 RUC Gold; and the first playoff match 25-12, 17-25 and 15-11.
The other Sundogs squads were also busy this last weekend.
Girls 14U Yellow finished sixth in QCVC 14U women’s tournament. The squad with head coach Tiffany Powell and assistant Lindsay Dickie beat QCVC Black, QCVC Fireball and Oxbow Blackknights, but lost to Lampman, Estevan and QCVC Royal Black in the March 21-22 tournament.
Les Collins’ 18U boys squad also finished sixth in the HVC open tournament in Saskatoon.
Saskatoon’s eight-team open tourney had four teams in Pool A and four teams in Pool B (Jr Sundog Pool).
After the round robin with one win and two losses, the Sundogs placed third in their pool. They were then repooled into a pool of the third and fourth teams from Pool A and Pool B and placed second in that pool with one win and one loss. 
With the playoff game at 8 a.m .Sunday morning a win would send the Sundogs to the A side and a loss would send them to the B side. With the loss to Saskatoon, they went to the B side, where they made it the B-side final with a win against Lloyd. They did however, lose the B final in two close sets to Oxbow.
