Beaverlodge Regional High School (BRHS) will open its doors to the province Thursday as host of the 2018 Senior Girls 3A Volleyball Provincial Games
The three-day event runs November 22-24. Principal Anna Nelson says 25 years have passed since BRHS last hosted this event.
“We are excited to host the games and we welcome the community to join us in cheering on the teams and celebrating their accomplishments,” she adds.
“We have received an outpouring of support from community businesses who have donated their time and funds to ensure the success of this tournament.”
Nelson says the process of securing the games started more than a year ago and expressed gratitude to BRHS teacher, girls volleyball coach and tournament chair Erin Martin for her efforts, as well as the school staff and community volunteers. Martin agrees.
“We’re thrilled to welcome the province’s best 3A-level female volleyball players to Beaverlodge,” says Martin. “Many of our students are involved in this event, so it’s an incredible opportunity to showcase the talent and citizenship that make BRHS special.”
The games will kick off with an opening ceremony in the BRHS gym beginning at 1pm on Thursday, November 22.
