·        This past Saturday, the Senior Boys Volleyball Team competed in the Ursuline College early bird volleyball tournament. The boys played exceptionally well in their 5 round robin matches finishing with an 8 and 2 record. The boys advanced to the semi finals and easily defeated the Holy Names Knights 25-18, 25-19. The boys advanced to the finals against a very tough Forest Heights team from Kitchener. Despite playing their hearts out, fatigue was kicking in and the boys lost 25-17, 25-22. Despite the loss, the boys started their season on a very high note. Best of luck this week in the season opener on Thursday.
