    There's a lot on the line at this year's provincial volleyball championships

    There’s a mix of new and old at this year’s AAAA Provincial Volleyball Championships Final Four.

     

    The top-ranked boy’s team the Selkirk Royals are no strangers to the Final Four. The Royals won last year’s provincial title and have five players returning from the team.

    Olympiens thrive under pressure

    They will hit the court tonight as the No. 1 seed, carrying the same target on their backs that has remained all season. For members of the Collège Jeanne-Sauvé Olympiens girls volleyball team, they wouldn’t want it any other way.

     

    "We’ve talked about the privilege of pressure, and how it’s good to play with pressure. It really drives us to do much better. It’s awesome," team captain Julie Arnold told the Free Press on the eve of their semifinal match with the No. 5-ranked Mennonite Brethren Collegiate Institute Hawks.

     

    The winner of the match, set for 8 p.m. at the University of Manitoba’s Investors Group Athletic Centre, will head directly to next Monday’s AAAA provincial high school final. No. 2 Lord Selkirk Royals take on No. 3 Portage Collegiate Institute Hawks in tonight’s other semifinal at 6 p.m.

     

     

    On the boys side, No. 1 ranked Lord Selkirk will be looking to make it back-to-back provincial titles. They face a tough task in Thursday’s semifinal against No. 4 St. Paul’s Crusaders, who won it all in 2015.

     

    No. 2 River East Kodiaks take on No. 3 Dakota Lancers in the other semifinal, with the winners meeting Monday in the final.
