It was an exciting start to the New Year for the Frontier Raiders senior boy’s volleyball team. The Raiders along with their coaches Len Fyfe and Keegan Ham received the Saskatchewan High Schools Athletic Association sportsmanship award for 2A provincial volleyball.

The provincial tournament was held on Nov 27/28 at Gravelbourg (College Mathieu). One team is chosen that best represents good sportsmanship and this year the award went to the Raiders! The team was presented with the banner and individual certificates at a school assembly the first week in January. Congrats Raiders.
