Schools face off in volleyball tournament

Tourney gives students a chance to compete

Dozens of students were down in Horse Lake on Dec. 7 for a volleyball tournament.

The tournament provides students with a chance to compete against other schools, after lots of practising within their own school.

Horse Lake won the tournament, with the Eliza Archie/Lac la Hache team and the Mile 108 team tied for second, according to Horse Lake Principal Ty Lytton.
