Congratulations to the JV BOYS VOLLEYBALL team on a fantastic season finale last Friday! In keeping with the team’s pattern to come back from behind after the lost first set, the boys found their higher gear with a victory in both Sets 2 and 3. After the disappointing loss in set 4, the Zods still had the fifth set to look forward to! Not quite enough to find the win, however, the boys still provided our superb assembly of Zodiac fans an entertaining match. Well done guys, and thanks for your hard work this season!

- Congrats to the JV BOYS Volleyball team on capturing the Zone 4 banner last night in the Zone Final vs NPC! With several players playing their best games of the season, and clutch players turning the game back in our favour at crucial moments, the match was truly exciting to watch. Well played Zods! Here we come Vincent Massey...
Girls start at 5:30 with the boys to follow. We need a huge crowd of GVC fans out for this as this is an GVC vs NPC event. Fans with the best sign will get to sit on the fan couch (judging will happen prior to first game) for the girls game. A different competition will take place between the boys and girls game to decide fan couch for boys game
The JV Boys Volleyball team performed very well at the Maples Collegiate tournament this weekend. Following a solid 2 set win to Westwood, the Zods couldn’t quite contain the strong hitting from Jean Sauve (CJS), which put them second in their pool. In the Championship 1/4 finals, the Zodiacs beat Calvin Christian to advance to playing CJS again in the semi finals. This time, however, the Zodiacs managed to win the first set, but once again the tough offence of CJS prevailed and the Zodiacs lost this semi final match. In the end, the strong showing of intensity and character dominated the weekend, two elements that the boys can be proud of!
The JV1 and JV2 Boys Volleyball teams faced each other in league play last night. Plenty of tough serves on both sides of the court were seen, as well as some terrific setting. It was exciting to see the competitiveness on both sides of the court, and to realize the increasing strength of boys volleyball at GVC. In this match up, the JV1’s were the victors, but both teams look forward to further competition. Well done, boys!
The JV2 boys team got their first taste of tournament volleyball over the weekend. The boys played hard throughout the group stage, narrowly missing qualification to the “A” side. The boys battled hard in the consolation pool and learned valuable lessons as the importance of both physical and mental stamina were apparent.
