Jr. SunDogs Black 14U Girls continued a successful season as they won the Division 2 Gold medal at the SaskCup tournament in North Battleford last weekend.


Coaches Liam Choo-Foo and Travis Kelln watched their squad go undefeated in seven consecutive matches and all by healthy margins.
The championship final March 20 saw them beat HVC Green 25-15, 25-18 in their third match within a ridiculously gruelling four-hour period. Earlier in the day the SunDogs beat the Prince Albert Toppers Esprit 25-8, 25-14 in the semi final.
The semi final was the second of a back to back match where they beat their Swift Current counterparts SunDogs (Yellow) 25-7, 25-13.
The SunDogs also easily beat the Prince Albert Topper Fuerza, QCVC Synergy (Regina), HVC White, and Martensville.
18U Men
The 18U men and Coaches Les Collins and Brandon Schultz attended the Husky Volleyball Club open tournament in Saskatoon. There were 10 teams in total, with five teams in two pools.
After round robin play on Saturday, they placed third in their pool. Sunday morning, playoffs started and they played HVC White who places second in the other pool. They lost, which sent them to the consolation side, where they played the Rustlers and with another loss, knocked them out of the tournament and ended their playoff run.
