The season is over for the DVSS Senior Dynos volleyball team.
 
The Senior Dynos, who finished second in their league this year, qualified for Regionals in Hanna on November 11.
 
Their first opponent was Holy Cross Collegiate out of Strathmore and things started well, with Drumheller topping the Strathmore team 30-28 in the opening set. However, Holy Cross won the next two by scores of 25-15 and 15-10.
 
That made it do or die for the Senior Dynos against Three Hills if they wanted to advance to the playoffs. Drumheller lost the opening set 25-20, but came back to win the second 25-11. With everything on the line, Three Hills won 17-15, which means the Dynos will not be going to Zones this year unless another team is unable to make it.
 
DVSS won their final match in straight sets over Hanna, 25-15 and 25-23.
 
"It's been our best year yet, which I do say each year as our program progresses," stated coach Erica Crocker. "We've done really well this year, placing second overall in our league, bringing home three bronze, and a B finalist in non-league tournaments." 
 
Last year, the Senior Dynos won only one league game and claimed silver at one tournament. Two years ago, they didn't win a single league game, nor place in a tournament.
 
Crocker notes they had 22 girls try out this year, more than double the number who showed up in her first year. They will need continued interest as five seniors will be graduating in the spring: Kali Bedu-Olsen, Brayden Peters, Eden Hilchey, Payton Zacharuk, and Captain Mikaela Koustrup.
 
The season ended on a high note for the DVSS Junior Dynos asx they attended South Central Zones in Okotoks. Drumheller finished third, beating the home team in the bronze medal game. There is not provincial competition for juniors.
