Durning the banner presentation ceremony on February 28 St. Michael's Principal Don Kuchison spoke of the longstanding friendly rivalry between the two schools, which was highlighted by the fact that after the ceremony many of the former volleyball teammates were to split into their respective teams to play what in essence was game two of a three game basketball showdown between the Dragons and the Sabres.  Livingstone Principal Chad Jensen also spoke, thanking St. Michael's for welcoming his students and helping to present the awards.  One of the team captains, Tyler Gerber of St. Michael's, thanked the parents and fans for their support.  It's really hard to go to a game without any fans, but we never had that problem," said Gerber. "You're half the team and it means a lot, and it's a lot of fun with your guys there and it wouldn't be anything without you."
