The Ladysmith Secondary School senior girls volleyball team is having a terrific season and is currently ranked third in the province.

The school is holding a spirit event this Wednesday after 2 p.m. to support the senior girls’ team. The 49ers were to play against Brentwood Bay, but Brentwood has had to cancel due to exams, so there will be a students versus teachers match instead.
