Abbey Neufeld and Jolene Cooke, both students at NBCHS, completed their training in Caronport during the first two weeks of July. Cooke was named to the 17U squad while Neufeld was placed on the 18U team. 

Cole and Joshua Fransoo, along with Adam and Marc Revet, made their way to Hepburn in early July to train with the men’s program. Cole and Joshua (16U) and Adam (18U) traveled to Halifax to compete. Marc Revet trained as a red shirt with the 16U team, so he did not compete with the team at nationals. 

Two community members were involved as coaches with Sask Volleyball this year. Jana Friedenstab, who coaches the senior girls’ team at NBCHS, was named as a coach for the 18U women’s team. Paul Sarsons, a teacher at NBCHS and coach of junior and senior boys’ teams, was named a coach for the 16U men’s team.
