Estevan won six of nine sets played on Wednesday.

ESTEVAN - The Estevan Comprehensive School Elecs senior volleyball teams have taken the lead in their annual Co-op Challenge showdown with the Weyburn Comprehensive School Eagles.

The first two matches were contested on Oct. 5 at the ECS gymnasium. The Elecs opened with a 3-2 victory. Set scores were 25-22, 24-26, 25-14, 17-25 and 15-10.

The senior girls, meanwhile, overcame a slow start in which they lost the first set 14-25, but then they won the next three sets 25-16, 25-14 and 25-16.

Estevan has a 6-3 edge in total set victories, which determines who wins the Co-op Challenge. If the two teams are tied for set victories, then total points is the tie-breaker. Estevan leads 195-148.

“It was an exciting event; great to witness competitive athletic abilities in front of an enthusiastic crowd,” said Elecs senior girls’ head coach Tamara Franklin.

The final two matches will be played on Oct. 12 in Weyburn. The girls’ game is at 5:30 p.m. and the boys will follow at 7:30 p.m. 

Weyburn is seeking their third straight Co-op Challenge series win.
