The Westisle Wolverines' No. One team is serving notice that they are serious contenders once again for the P.E.I. School Athletic Association senior AAA boys' volleyball gold medal.
The Wolverines took a 7-0 (won-lost) record into last night's match against the only other undefeated team in the league, Three Oaks Axemen.
The Westisle squad has an overall season record of 15-2, including tournament championships at the Cobequid Invitational and Three Oaks tournament.

Key players
Key players for the Wolverines include Lucas Dyment, Brandon Boyce and Jeff Duggan.
Dyment, the Wolverines' captain, plays the power position and is a powerful hitter, great server and passer.
"(He is) expected to be a good leader for our team from the perspective of myself and the coaches," said head coach Peter Bolo. "Lucas tries to keep everyone positive and to be a consistent hitter."
He is the son of Judy Dyment of O'Leary and is a senior.
Dyment explained why he plays volleyball: "It allows me to meet lots of new people and to stay physically active. It is the sport that challenges me most physically."
Dyment also played on the P.E.I. under-19 men's softball team this past summer, plays badminton, softball and hockey.
His favourite pro athlete is Sidney Crosby because he has the head and heart that is needed to be a pro athlete. His inspiration is Terry Fox because he made it clear that you can do what you put your mind to, and to never give up.
Dyment plans to attend university and become a physical education teacher.
Brandon Boyce is a Grade 11 left-side player. He is the son of Brian Boyce and Dawn Harris of O'Leary.
Boyce enjoys the competition volleyball provides. He also played on the provincial volleyball team this past summer, as well as beach volleyball, softball and was a member of the 2009 P.E.I. indoor men's volleyball team.
His favourite pro athlete is Phil Dalhousser because of his excellence in beach volleyball.
Duggan is the team setter and runs the offensive patterns for his team. The son of Vicky and Blair Duggan has a 90-per-cent average.
Duggan enjoys meeting the other competitors and the friendly competition in all his sports, which also include provincial volleyball, beach volleyball, cross-country and curling.
Duggan's favourite athlete is Ahrien Caudeux, a beach volleyball player he met at nationals.
Duggan plans to study kinesiology in university.
