Peacock Collegiate senior girls won the provincial 4A high school volleyball championship over the weekend.

Peacock beat Martensville and Central Collegiate on their way to the championship match where they beat North Battleford's John Paul II two sets to one, 25-15, 16-25, 15-11.

Co-Coach of the team, Krysta Caplette, says the girls fought hard the whole time.

"We went there with the mindset that we would take it one game at a time, so to be in that final at all was a huge achievement for us," says Caplette. 

Caplette says the team lost to North Battleford early on Saturday morning 22-25, 25-13, 15-9 and then played Meadow Lake in the quarter-finals and won 25-15, 25-14. 

The semi-finals was a Moose Jaw matchup against Central Collegiate.

"We knew, either way, one of us was going to the bronze and one was going to the gold, we were excited that two Moose Jaw teams had a shot at the medal."

Peacock beat Central in that match 25-11, 25-9 and then met with North Battleford once again. 

"We had a lot of parent support and a lot of cheering," says Caplette. 

She says the team was using their volleyball IQ.

Peacock ended up taking home the gold medal. 

"You never want to end your season on a bad game, but we ended on the best that we could be," says Caplette. 

She says she couldn't be prouder of her team.
