The school’s A2 team finished 2-2 in the round-robin, losing to the Duchess Park Senior team and beating PGSS and the Duchess Park Junior 1 team. They knocked off the Duchess Park Junior A team 25-15, 22-25, 15-13 in the quarterfinals, then avenged their earlier loss to the Duchess Park Seniors by beating them 25-23, 25-21 in the semifinals.
