“[Of note] we had two high school teams from the Cariboo Adventists Academy,” Desautels said. “They were awesome and it is good to finally have some young blood again.”

Playoffs consisted of a double knockout format where Team Cobra went unbeaten in all its games.

“We’ll be starting outdoor volleyball in May, hopefully,” Desautels said.

Early plans will see the field at Sacred Heart School be used for games, however, more information on when games will begin will be available in the near future.
