If participation at the Junior level is this good now, then girls volleyball in Inverness County is going to be strong and competitive for a long time to come.
Forty-eight girls, representing five teams from four county schools, took part in a Junior Girls tournament hosted by the Inverness Education Centre Academy Rebels.
The divisional tournament decided who would host the JARIS (Junior Athletics Richmond-Inverness Schools) and who the second North team would be.
In the end, the Inverness Rebels came out on top of the five-team round-robin with 11 points, winning three of their matches in 2-0 sweeps and one, to second-place Bayview Bears #1, by a 2-1 margin.
