'AA' Frontier Mosakahiken School Volleyball Zones

Article written by: Laura Audia, Frontier Mosakahiken School

The gymnasium at Frontier Mosakahiken School was buzzing with excitement at the Senior Varsity Girls and Senior Varsity Boys ‘AA’ Volleyball Zones which took place between November 17th and November 19th 2016.  Many teams travelled across the province to join together in battle on the court for the championship banner.  St. Theresa Point, Nelson House, Oxford House, and Split Lake all made lengthy journeys to join local teams Oscar Lathlin Collegiate of The Pas, Frontier Collegiate Institute of Cranberry Portage and hosts Frontier Mosakahiken School.


The tournament began midafternoon on Thursday with round robin games.   Within a few plays, the gym was erupting with loud, boisterous cheers as the watching crowd cheered on their school, friends and fellow teammates.  The rumbling of the bleachers could be heard ringing through the halls as the spectators eagerly stomped their feet, whistled and encouraged the players as the ball made its way across the court. The gym was the main attraction with continuous games in play, the kitchen staff was busy as they prepared meals that filled the air with its delicious aromas, all while staff worked tirelessly to ensure a smooth, seamless and successful tournament. Athletes displayed exceptional skills on the court, positive sportsmanship and determination as they faced each other in an emotional race to the championship title. Athletes that exhibited these distinctive qualities on the court were awarded ‘Game Star’ by the game referees and given a prize donated by one of the tournament sponsors. This award was a new initiative introduced this year by the tournament organizer, Michelle Gamblin.  Although many teams fought hard as the games ran late into the evening on Friday, it began to be clear who would successfully make it to the playoff rounds Saturday morning.


The girls playoffs saw Oxford House, Split Lake, Oscar Lathlin Collegiate and Frontier Collegiate Institute face each other in the semi-finals.  The intensity on the court transpired to the watching crowd as they anxiously sat on the edge of their seat with every play.  Ultimately, OLC and FCI both defeated their opponents respectfully and faced each other in the championship game of best 2 of 3 sets.  The final game was jam packed with impressive serving, hitting and digging. Quick movements were made on the court in desperate attempts to save the ball in crucial plays during long rallies. Coaches motivated their players on the court and the crowd shouted excitedly as the match progressed.  In the end, the OLC Wolverines were no match for the FCI Raiders vigorous effort on the court and won the championship in 2 sets.  The Raiders stormed the court in celebration of their victorious win and will now be playing in Morris, Manitoba in the provincials held December 1st to December 3rd. 

The boys playoffs saw a tremendous display of athleticism as the playoffs took off on Saturday morning.  Hosts Frontier Mosakahiken School, Split Lake, Oscar Lathlin Collegiate and Oxford House advanced to the semi-finals.  The boys fought with grit and fortitude as they lead an emotional fight against their opponents. OLC and FMS advanced to the championship round after showing Oxford House and Split Lake no mercy. The OLC Wolverines and The FMS Grizzlies fought hard in combat for the championship banner. The gymnasium quickly became tense, soaking in the excitement of the game.  OLC and FMS cheered on loudly as the boys rallied for the win.  FMS Grizzlies won both sets to earn the championship title in an emotional win over OLC.  Athletes on both teams showed exemplar sportsmanship and made both of their schools proud. FMS Grizzlies will be advancing to the provincial tournament taking place on December 1st-December 3rd in Carman, Manitoba. 

Both championship titles held an award and medal ceremony following the game recognizing top athletes in the tournament. Awards were issues to Best Setter, Best Hitter, Best Blocker, Best Sportsmanship, Best Server and Most Valuable Player. In addition, first and second place medals were awarded to players and coaches on each team. The tournament ended mid afternoon on Saturday as teams headed back to their communities after a weekend full of exciting volleyball and new memories. 

Frontier Mosakahiken School would like to thank of their sponsors; Kleen All, Kick It Sports, Shanes Music, Dominos Pizza, Sound Innovations, Funky Threads, Michaels Pizza Hut, Northland Leisure, Cranberry Coffee Shop, Extra Foods and The Grub Box.  FMS would lastly like to wish both the Boys FMS Grizzlies and Girls FCI Raiders representing Zone 11 goodluck in the provincial finals.
