ELMSDALE -- Three senior AAA boys' volleyball tournaments so far this season, and three gold medals for the Westisle Wolverines' No. 1 team.
Their latest tournament triumph came at the recent fifth annual Colonel Gray Wall of Fame Cup. The Wolverines defeated the Three Oaks Axemen 2-0 (25-15, 25-12) in the championship match to claim the 10-team boys' tournament.
The Wolverines finished second in their five-team pool. They defeated the host Colonels 2-0 (25-19, 25-12), Montague 2-0 (25-9, 25-15) and Lockview, N.S., 2-0 (25-21, 25-13). Their only loss was to Horton High from Wolfville, N.S.
"We had defeated Horton in a close match in the final off the CEC (Cobequid Education Centre in Truro, N.S.) tournament three weeks earlier, and the Griffons came looking for revenge," said Westisle head coach Peter Bolo. "We just didn't match the intensity they brought to the court."
Horton took the match 2-0 (25-22, 25-23).

Semifinals
A second-place standing in pool play sent the Wolverines to the semifinals against the first-place team from the other pool, the CEC Cougars (4-0). The Cougars had defeated the Wolverines in round-robin play during the CEC tournament three weeks ago, so this time it was Westisle's turn for revenge.
The first set was back and forth with some terrific rallies. Westisle managed to score the last two points to come away with an exciting 26-24 victory. The Wolverines used this momentum right from the start to take Set 2 by a 25-14 score.
In the other semifinal, Three Oaks, which had lost to Horton twice the previous weekend in the Dal Classic, came away with a much-deserved 2-0 (25-22, 25-22) victory.
The Wolverines' victory over Three Oaks gave them their second consecutive Wall of Fame Cup championship, and their third in the five-year history of the event.
The Wall of Fame tournament featured 40 boys and girls' volleyball and soccer teams in one of the biggest high-school sporting events in the Maritimes.

Tournament MVP
Westisle team captain Lukas Dyment was selected as the tournament most valuable player, and teammate Owen Doucette was named to the all-star team. Steven Feng and Connor O'Neill from Three Oaks were also selected as all-stars.
Westisle now has an overall record of 22 wins and three losses. They are 8-0 (won-lost) in P.E.I. School Athletic Association Senior AAA Boys Volleyball League play, and host Three Oaks today at 5 p.m.
The Wolverines defeated the Axemen 3-0 in league play last week, and today's match will be a big one for the first- and second-place teams in the province.
