                The Regina Volleyball Club hosted the tournament at Campbell Collegiate where they had 10 teams entered to compete. The Vipers began their fight towards the gold medal match with a game against Martinsvill Outerlimits Blue, the girls worked hard and took the games with scores of 25-11 and 25-14. The next team they took on were an RVC Gold 14U team, which the girls earned victory over with scores of 25-11 in each set.

                The girls then lost in tough battles to one of the top teams in the province currently, QCVC Royal Elite, but the girls were determined to meet them in the final and would do this after finishing their pool against a tough QCVC Royal Black 14U team.

                Sunday, April 12, was playoffs day and the girls came out on fire in the first match against Martinsville Outerlimits White. Moving up the ranks the girls then took on QCVC Royal Elite 14U. This match went to three sets, but the Vipers were able to win, ending the game with a booming hit which came off the perfect set-up between passer and setter after QCVC gave up a free ball off of a tough serve.

                The girls had fought for another chance to take on the QCVC Royal Elite 15U team and would battle their way against the team, nearly taking a set off of them. The first set the girls took a little while to get fired up and lost 25-16, but the next set the Vipers came out hard narrowly losing to the Regina team at 25-23.

                Overall the girls did a phenomenal job and have been working all season towards their final competition in Saskatoon on April 25 and 26 for Provincials.

                Go Vipers!
