Resurrection's Cheyanne Omand (left) and Erica Howitt are on the defensive during a District 8 senior girls volleyball game earlier this season. The Phoenix are 11-0 heading into the final portion of the regular season.

The schedule-maker got it right when drawing up the WCSSAA senior girls volleyball schedule.
Assuming they both win a pair of games next week -- easier said than done -- Sir John A. Macdonald and Forest Heights are headed for a first-place showdown on Tuesday, Feb. 10, the final day of the regular season for both teams.
The Highlanders and Trojans are both 9-0 going into the final three games of the schedule but both have one challenging game ahead of them
SJAM will face WCI (8-1) and Waterloo-Oxford (3-6) before facing Forest Heights, while the Trojans meet up with Cameron Heights (6-3) and Eastwood (0-9) in advance of the showdown.
The Trojans have won nine WCSSAA championships since 2002 while the Highlanders are attempting to win the first girls volleyball banner in school history.
It should be fun to see how this all works out.

It's hard to see anyone touching the Resurrection Phoenix in the District 8 senior girls volleyball league.
The Phoenix have been the class of the league since the start and currently boast an 11-0 record, winning all 33 sets they've played.
Assuming they advance out of D8, the Phoenix will attempt to become the first team from that circuit to win the CWOSSA quad-A championship.
