Raft River girls go to Barriere

We had a very good learning experience and didn't take any wins

Raft River Elementary School volleyball player Makalya Merwin takes part in four-team tournament in Barriere last week. The local squad didn't win any games but gained valuable experience.

At the Barriere volleyball games we played three teams. We had a very good learning experience and didn’t take any wins but we were close in our first game. It was good that our parents were able to drive us to Barriere.

We look forward to our next games and hope to do better with our great coaches’ help – Mrs. Crystal Wadlegger, Mrs. Yurkiw and teacher sponsor Ms. Weddell.
