Our 18U’s felt both excitement and nostalgia as they prepared for their final 403 season.  A returning eight athletes, along with four new players set the stage for a great weekend of volleyball.  They swept their pool without losing a set and dispatched U18 Ace in straight sets to win the crossover match and ensure a Division 1 ranking.  They then faced U18 Canucks in the quarterfinals which 403 beat in two straight.  This set up a highly enjoyable match against the formidable U18 Junior Dinos.  It was a very entertaining game with great hitting and team defensive play on both sides, but the Dinos pulled out a 3rd set victory.  They could not pull out a win in a close match against the Panthers and finished the AVA #1 tournament with a fourth place position.  This places our U18 in strong position for AVA #2 March 5th and 6th in Edmonton.
