The Duke of Marlborough School Storm volleyball team traveled six days by van and plane to compete in the Manitoba Provincials Thursday. Going into the opening matches of the Manitoba High Schools Athletic Association boys A-level provincials, the tiny Churchill school had competed in only eight matches over two weekends all year. Getting to the zones cost the boys and their families a total of $2,300, but that's for 933 kilometres each way...1,866 kilometres round trip. See Nick Martin's story - http://wfp.to/churchill
