The 8th Grade A2 girls had a fantastic season.   They fought hard, but ended up losing in the NWCC Championship Game.  The season was filled with many ups, including finishing the regular season as undefeated Conference Champs.  This team also won the St. Paul Volleyball Invitation Tournament.  These girls for three years represented St. Raymond’s with drive, focus and tenacity.  They made their coaches and parents proud.

The undefeated 8th Grade A2 team celebrated a championship win at the St. Paul Invitational Volleyball Tournament on Oct. 13. The Saints brought their A game to the two-day tournament, beating the St. Peter Wildcats (Schaumburg) and the Immanuel Panthers (Crystal Lake) before facing the host team in the final match. The Saints and the St. Paul Comets both played very well, and our girls won the match in three games. The A2 team has exhibited exceptional camaraderie and sportsmanship throughout the season. We could not be prouder of our girls!

St. Raymond 8 A1 at Top Flight tournament

8th A1 Earns First-Place in Pool Play at Top Flight Tourney

By Carolyn Mueller 10/04/2018, 9:00pm CDT

The 8th Grade A1 and 8th Grade A2 volleyball teams participated in the Midwest Classic tournament at Top Flight Volleyball Club in Elgin on Sept. 29.

In pool play 8th A1 faced opponents from St. Catherine in West Dundee; the host school, Wredling B in St. Charles, and Huntley.  8 A1 finished in first place in their pool with a 5-1 game record, and advanced on to the "A" playoffs.  In the first playoff round, 8th A1 played a very tough Wredling A team, lost the match in two games, so did not advance to the "A" championship.  There were great performances by all our 8th A1 Lady Saints, and congratulations on finishing first place in pool play!
