Gilbert Plains Trojans Varsity Girls Volleyball off to Provincials!

The Gilbert Plains Trojans varsity girls volleyball team will be in Brandon later this month taking part in Provincials after placing second in a provincial qualifier over the weekend.

"The girls definitely had a nice celebration after the final game," said Daniel Lehman, Head Coach of the team. "The ladies work really hard, and that hard work is paying off when it matters."

In the round-robin, the Trojans dispatched of Ste. Jean Baptiste and Treherne, before falling in a three-set battle to Strathclair in the team's final round-robin game."

In the playoffs, the Trojans took on Ste. Jean Baptiste and once again beat them in two sets, which clinched them a berth in the Provincials.

The Trojans then took on Strathclair in the finals and were defeated.

"We knew we clinched a spot in the Provincials after our semifinal win, which was a great feeling," said Lehman. "We've had good battles with Strathclair all season long, and that continued this past weekend."

The Trojans will now enter the Provincials as the fifth-seed, and the Provincials are set for November 30 until December 2 in Brandon.
