Junior Girls First Game of the Season

A win for girls 53 to 2 at Mayerthorpe!!

Volleyball Zone Championships

The Sr. Girls began their Zone Championship tournament against the Mayerthorpe Tigers on Friday, Nov. 17th.  The Tigers were itching for a rematch after losing to the Mustangs in the league final earlier that week but after a long and difficult contest, the Mustangs were once again able to come out victorious.  The round robin successes continued Friday night and Saturday morning with wins over Holy Redeemer and then host St Jo's.  


A perfect round robin record earned our girls a bye into the semi-final where, after an 8 hour break, they were again matched up against a surging Saint's team.  Despite home court advantage and a loud crowd of local support, the Mustangs went on the attack immediately, winning the first set 25-11 and following it up with a another convincing win in the 2nd.   The final team standing in the way of the Mustangs and their goal of a return to Provincials was the also unbeaten Devon Wildcats.  


The finals proved to be an epic battle.  Fans on both sides were deafeningly loud, the players were fired up, and the volleyball was fantastic.   There were many lead changes in the first set but Devon took charge at the end to win 25-21.  They also took an early lead in the 2nd set and it looked like the Mustangs season could be over.  Once again, showing their character, the Mustangs regrouped, refocused, and pushed back to win the 2nd 25-23.  In the 3rd set both teams battled hard.  Every point was an epic struggle.  The Mustangs took a lead mid way through and then Devon pushed back to get within one right near the end.  The gym was defining as the two teams took the court to see the Mustangs score the last point, winning the set 15-13 and finishing off what was possibly the most thrilling match of Coach Lougheed's 13-year career.   

The win secured the Sr. Girls Mustangs their second zone championship in 2 years. It earned them a birth to Provincials again; and it capped off the team's most successful season in recent memory.  This year's team went undefeated in the GCAA league, undefeated in zones, and maybe, most impressively, undefeated against 2A Zone teams ALL SEASON.   

Way to go Girls.  Good luck at Provincials!  Go Mustangs Go!
