Congratulations to the JV Girls Volleyball team on a great season. After winning the Zone banner last Monday, the JV Girls headed to Brandon to face off against Vincent Massey in the Interzone game. While they played a strong first set against the #4 ranked team, unfortunately it just wasn't our day and Massey took the win. We are so proud of how you came together as a team this season and how much you've grown! Well done, Zods!

JV Girls played a stellar game last night against NPC to take home the Zone 4 Banner! After dominating NPC in set 1 due to their excellent serving and passing, NPC battled back to take the second set. Not being a team to back down from a challenge, our players were mentally tough and fought back to win the 3rd set with excellent communication and hustle. In the 4th set, the girls overcame an 8 point deficit to come back and win! We are so proud of the girls for their hard work, team spirit, and determination. All of these factors resulted in a fast-paced, exciting game and some truly excellent volleyball. Well done, Zods!
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
JV Girls Volleyball team faced a tough opponent in their Altona match yesterday, but they worked hard and played with determination to make it an excellent match. After taking the first set 25-21, our girls went on to lose the next 2 sets 25-22. They pushed hard to come back in the 4th set but fell short to an energetic Miller team. Great serving, passing, and on-the-net play made it a fun game with wonderful team spirit! Special shout-outs to Ally for stepping into the power role with huge success, to Indi for her stellar defensive play (including on the net!), and to all of our excellent servers! Well done, Zods!
The JV Girls took on the Grade 9 Girls volleyball team last night. After a strong start with 2 wins in the first 2 sets, the girls lost some steam and the 9s worked their way back to win the 3rd and 4th sets! The JV Girls pushed through and found the energy and determination to take the 5th set 15-11. A solid team effort all around that featured excellent serving runs, much-improved at-the-net play, and great team coverage! Well done, folks!
This past Saturday, the grade 9 girl's volleyball team played 5 thrilling games of volleyball! The team started the day off by defeating NPC, they then lost two close sets to Steinbach (27-26 each set), and were then challenged by the eventual finalists, Green Valley. Going into their final round-robin game with one win, and two losses, the team rallied back to defeat Stonewall which placed the Zodiacs 3rd in their pool. The team proceeded to play a tough play-off game against Rosenort, where they eventually lost in 2 close sets. Overall, the team demonstrated great communication and defensive positioning on the court throughout the tournament!
The grade 9 girls volleyball team ended their tournament in Portage on a positive note this weekend. After a tie and three loses in the round robin, the team faced Morden in the 5 vs. 5 final where they later came out on top.
