The St. Mary’s Mustangs beat Sacred Heart in an all-BAA final to win the 2019 CWOSSA ‘AA’ junior boys volleyball championship Friday in Walkerton.

After finishing pool-play undefeated, the Mustangs topped St. David in straight sets (25-15, 25-13) Friday morning to earn a berth into the championship game. Meanwhile, the Sacred Heart Crusaders – also 3-0 coming out of pool-play – shutout Bishop MacDonnell (25-16, 26-24) in their semifinal.
