The DVSS Senior Dynos volleyball team travelled to Okotoks on the weekend for the Zone Two Championship at Strathcona Tweedsmuir School.

"They performed really admirably; they ran a faster tempo offence and things that we had been practising all season and it seemed as though everything came together this weekend," recalled coach Erica Crocker. "Unfortunately, in the quarter-finals, the (Oilfields) Drillers got the best of us and we lost in three sets."

Drumheller finished the tournament in 5th place, which Crocker insisted does not reflect how well they played.

"Our first tournament in Brooks was a similar outcome to Zones, where we lost in the quarter-finals, but every other tournament that we've played in we medalled," she noted. "Two golds and a silver over the season, there's so many highlights; you'd have me on the phone for a very long time if we're going over the highlight reel, it was such a great season."

The four most senior Dynos will be moving on at the end of the school year. Grace Spitzer, Cera Cawiezel, Emilya Wright and Erin Bertsch will be graduating in 2019. Crocker believes these girls are going to be very difficult to replace given their commitment to the sport.

"We've got a lot of great girls coming up from the Junior A team; they secured their (Zone) banner last weekend," she explained. "We've got eight girls that are continuing to develop and we're going to be an aggressive team next year, so I'm really looking forward to it."
