This was our first volleyball tournament for the Assumption Jr.Sr. High Senior Girls Volleyball Team. We left at lunch time, from school, all 13 girls and our coach Mr. Publow. This tournament was in Vermilion, about 3 and a half hours away. So once we arrived we checked into our hotel, 4 people sharing a room, then went to Sobey's and got snacks to eat, then straight to the College which wa holding the tournament. There were a few different school hosting, so we hada bit of running around between games going from school to school to get to the right court that we had to play on next. All up we had about 13 games over the two days. So we were really tired by the end of it! That Friday night we had 6 games starting at 5.30 and our last game was at 11. We didn't get back to the hotel until about 12.30 - 1.00ish and we went straight to be, having to get up at 7.00 again the next morning. I can't remember exactly but I think we won about 3 or 4 of those 6 games so that was pretty good. On Saturday there were another 4 games in the round robin, which we won 2 or 3 of I think, so that got us into the play-offs. Then we kept winning in the play-offs until we lost the game which determined 4th place. There were about 12 teams so we did pretty good. Again we got back home late at about 9 or 10.00 I think it was. But it was heaps of fun and a great experience.
