THE volleyball season has now concluded with some excellent championships provincewide.

Highlights included: Lord Selkirk dominated the scene, capturing both the boys and girls junior varsity titles as well as the AAAA boys championship. The Linden Christian girls won their second consecutive AAA title and the Killarney girls made it two in a row for the JV A/AA championship.

The high school basketball season is now getting underway and hockey season has been going strong for the last couple of months with the first rankings now out. The St. Paul's Crusaders are the top ranked AAAA team, going undefeated so far this season, while Major Pratt of Russell tops the AA schools to begin the rankings.


Coaches of the month

  • KYLA Michalski of Lord Selkirk Regional School has been selected as urban coach of the month for November. Michalski recently led her junior varsity girls volleyball team to the provincial AAA/AAAA championship. The girls had an amazing season which included going undefeated in KPAC, earning first place in four tournaments and finally capturing the provincial title. A former KPAC volleyball player, Kyla also coaches indoor and outdoor track and field.
  • KALYN Warner of Roseau Valley School in Dominion City has been selected as rural coach of the month for November. Warner began at the school in 2011 and took on co-ordinating the girls basketball program that was in its infancy. Her work carried over to the 2012/2013 school year, where she took on the junior varsity and varsity girls and worked with them as an entire group to build some continuity in the program. She is also head coach of the varsity girls volleyball team.
