The senior boys Aces hosted their annual home volleyball tournament over the weekend.

Seven teams made the trip to Eckville Junior/Senior High School to compete in the Eckville Aces Invitational on Oct. 18-19.

The Aces opened the tournament Friday afternoon going 1-1 with the Olds Koinonia Royals before returning to the court later that evening to Brant Christian School.

The Aces dropped both sets Brant Christian, but captured one more set during their final round robin game Saturday morning against Rundle Academy.

The senior boys Aces sat in fourth place in their pool and met with the West Central Rebels in the consolation game the afternoon of Oct. 19.

Acme walked away from the tournament with the gold medals over Brant Christian, with CACHS rounding out the podium.

The senior girls Aces will be hosting their home tournament this weekend, Oct. 25-26.
