The Major Pratt Senior Girls Varsity Volleyball Team have had an absolutely stellar season to date, winning all but one of the six high school tournaments they’ve entered.

The team is hoping to continue their success throughout the remainder of their season and their goal is to bring home the Provincial Championship banner for the second year in a row.

Provincials are set for Dec 1-3 in The Pas.
