The Bulldogs became the first-ever team from Belfast Consolidated School to win a P.E.I. School Athletic Association (PEISAA) provincial boys' volleyball championship.
Belfast, which finished the regular season in first place in the three-team PEISAA Midget A Boys Volleyball League, received a bye to the championship match.
Francois Buote defeated Vernon River 3-1 (25-8, 24-26, 25-19, 25-8) in the semifinal match, and then Belfast prevailed 3-0 in the final. Scores were 25-21, 25-20, 25-22.
Great serve receiving by Cam White and Jack Munro’s tough serving were keys for Belfast early on against Francois Buote. As the match wore on, Brady Vincent and Jacob Stewart were able to find the holes in Francois Buote’s defence.
Keaghan Norring of Francois Buote demonstrated great leadership skills, trying to will his team to victory in the third set.
Although Francois Buote made it close, Munro, who was named the provincial championship tournament’s most valuable player, finished the match with a bullet serve on match point.
