The JV BOYS VOLLEYBALL team took home another Championship at the Maples Tournament this weekend. They had some tough losses in half of the sets played on Friday, but Saturday's playoff action was flawless with zero sets lost to JH Bruns, Kelvin, and Vincent Massey. Contributions from every player was clearly evident in the tournament: big blocks, timely digs, tough serves, and massive attacks. Michael Froese and Tom Friesen led the team in a combined 45% of earned points over the weekend, and Tom was awarded the Player of the Game for the Championship Final. One final league game to go on Monday against WC Miller, then we're on to the Zone Final on Nov 14!
The varsity boys volleyball team had a great showing at their home tournament over the weekend. The Zodiacs went 3-1 in round robin play to finish 2nd in their pool and proceeded to win their quarter final match against St. James 25-18 and 25-16. The Zods then lost in the semi’s to the eventual tournament champion Steinbach Christian. Kyle led the team in kills and aces while Ryan patrolled the back row passing a 2.29. The Zodiacs travel to Brandon this upcoming weekend as they play in the Viking Classic
The Varsity Girls Volleyball team had a great showing this weekend at the Maples tournament falling just short in the consolation finals. They will continue their play this weekend as we host our home tournament.
Congratulations to the JV BOYS VOLLEYBALL TEAM on a superb performance at their first set of matches at the Brandon Bobcat Men’s JV Tournament this weekend. After a convincing record of 9:1 in round robin action to take first, the Zods moved to playoffs determined to see Vincent Massey in the championship game. Armed with what clearly became a solid Wall of Banman, and with Lucky13 Tom's flexibility to step up for two injured players, the Zods took one set from Massey easily. Grateful to the NPC boys for their boisterous support throughout our playoff games, the Zods couldn’t quite pull off the last set against the tough Massey squad, and came home proud to be the No. 2 team in the tournament. Come and check out this group Monday night as they take on Sanford in our home opener!
The Varsity Girls had a strong showing against Vincent Massey on Friday. The Zodiacs played hard, but in the end, Vincent Massey's strong offence caused us to lose in straight sets. Congrats to the girls on a great season!
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!
