The Estevan Comprehensive School (ECS) Elecs senior boys' volleyball team won their home tournament, and they did it in fine style by winning all eight of their matches.
Estevan opened the tournament by defeating Kipling, Redvers and Midale in straight sets in a round-robin on October 4. Teams were repooled for games on October 5, and Estevan went on to beat Carnduff, Kipling and Oxbow.
The wins over Carnduff and Kipling were in straight sets; Estevan needed three sets to defeat Oxbow.
The Elecs finished first in their pool with a combined 6-0 record, and advanced to the semi-final, which they won in straight sets over Redvers.
In the final, Estevan played Oxbow, and Estevan won a tight, three-set match-up. The score in the final set was 25-23 for Estevan.
Elecs head coach Nathan Johnson said he was impressed with the Elecs' service game during the tournament.
"We put the other teams in trouble by serving tough," said Johnson. "All the players did a good job of that."
Estevan won even though three players, including starter Carson Perkins, missed the tournament due to other sporting commitments outside of the community. But Johnson said other players stepped up their performances.
"Logan Hertes and Jared Daoust had to pass the ball a lot more than when Carson is there, and they did a really good job of that," said Johnson.
Jordan Fichter and Kyle Hertes were called up from the junior volleyball team.
Keiron Gallipeau played well at setter, he said. Willy Tavernor and Kale Little were their top attackers, and Layton Stropko played well at middle blocker.
This was the third time in four tournaments this year that the Elecs have reached a final.
The Elecs next tournament will be in Oxbow on October 18 and 19.
