The Fulton Maroons went undefeated in exhibition senior AA girls volleyball play Saturday at Westsyde Secondary in Kamloops.

Sharon Shaigec’s crew swept the Westsyde Whundas, Valleyview Vikings and Sa-Hali Sabres in straight games, while stopping the South Kam Titans 2-1.

“Veteran Grade 12 players Allison Hobkirk, Abbey Hughes, Emily Dahl and Danya Truscott Plitt all contributed to a solid attack and tough serving,” said Shaigec.

“Paige Noakes, Emma Binns and Jacinda Heng (defensive specialist) rounded out the starting lineup.”

Next action for the Maroons is a fundraiser this Sunday at Buy Low Foods 10 a.m.-4 p.m. to help the team cover tournament entry fees for the season.

The Maroons are in the Thompson Rivers University 40-team classic Sept. 22-23 and then visit Kelowna for the UBCO Heat classic Oct. 6-7.

Fulton is in the Best of the West Tournament Oct. 6-7 and the George Elliot tourney Oct. 13-14 in Lake Country.
