The Kweens had a successful round-robin, finishing 7-1 before the final round. After defeating Otter Nelson River School from Cross Lake in the semi-finals, the Kweens lost to Thompson’s RD Parker Collegiate Trojans in a thrilling final. 

The Kings also finished their round-robin strong, entering the final round 6-2 in second place. The Kings defeated the MBCI Spartans from The Pas in the semis, but lost to the Trojans in the tournament final.

Five Hapnot players earned individual awards during the tournament.

Kings player Branson Powell won the tournament’s MVP award. Powell’s teammates, Jayden Laliberty and Brett Davie, won the best passer award and best setter award respectively.

Kweens player Kelsie Mote won the best hitter award on the girls’ side, while teammate Hasana Church was named best passer.

The Kweens, fresh off their loss in the final, will play next in the Big Dig tournament in Brandon this weekend.

“The girls get better every game they play,” said coach Sharon Beck. “We are still testing different combinations and getting our rhythm set. We will be ready for zones.”

Hapnot will host the senior varsity girls’ and boys’ volleyball zone tournament on Nov. 11 and 12.

Meanwhile, the  Creighton Kodiaks senior A girls’ team played in Carrot River last weekend, going 3-3 in the round-robin before losing in the consolation round final.

The senior A girls’ Kodiaks play their regional tournament on
Nov. 11 and 12, with the senior boys’ team also at regionals the same weekend.
