The Bongo Volleyball U16 boys team, consisting of 13 players from Canora, Norquay, Saltcoats, Langenburg, Esterhazy, Melville and Yorkton, recently finished their season.

Although the boys had some tough games on the court, they spent the season refining their skills and learning how to play the game, according to Coaches Brandon Needham and Jesse Baron.

The boys practiced every Sunday and attended three tournaments this year. They traveled to Prince Albert for a club tournament, Regina for a Sask Cup tournament, and Saskatoon for provincials.

"It was awesome to have so many athletes involved in our program this year. It was great coming to the gym and seeing a group that works hard and loves the game. These guys improved so much during the year and if this group sticks together, we will have a lot of success next year," Needham said.
