The boys finished round robin play with 1 win and 3 losses, which put the team in fourth place overall in their pool and clinched a spot in the Quarter-Finals against Mossbank. Mossbank had a perfect round robin with 4 wins and 0 losses, and were able to defeat Leader in straight sets. Leader finished with an overall record of 1 win and 4 losses in Provincials, and finished in seventh place overall out of ten teams.

Errol Campbell, Leader's head coach, talked about how his team has performed from the start of playoffs when Conference Play began, to the moment now where the season has officially come to a close.

"It's been very good and the boys have kept positive throughout the tough times through our run. Our second place finish in Regionals gave us lots of confidence heading into Provincials because we knew we could compete with the very best teams in this province."

Leader has now managed to make back-to-back appearances in Senior Boys Provincials, and will look to make it three consecutive years in the 2018 season.

Wilkie travelled to Moosomin/Rocanville for 2A Provincials and played some of their best volleyball early on in the round robin portion. The boys from Wilkie finished in third place in their pool with 2 wins and 2 losses in round robin. They qualified for a Quarter-Final match-up against Hepburn, who finished in second place in the opposite pool. Hepburn took the match in straight sets to eliminate Wilkie.

Wilkie finished in first place at Conference Play to open up playoffs, and finished in first place again at Regionals. The boys finish with an overall record of 2 wins and 3 losses at Provincials and can say they are the fifth best team in the province at the 2A level.

The senior boys volleyball team from Biggar competed in 4A Provincials in Humboldt on the weekend. Biggar finished round robin with 1 win and 3 losses to finish in fourth place in their pool. In their Quarter-Final match, Biggar faced Humboldt and dropped the game in straight sets. Humboldt would go on to win 4A Provincials with an undefeated record.
