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!
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!
- 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...
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!
Congrats to the Varsity Girls Volleyball team for winning their second tournament of the season! They were in St. James on Saturday, where they played 12 sets in 7 hours, winning all 12 sets to go undefeated on the day to take home Gold for GVC! Well done ladies!
The Varsity Girls volleyball team remains undefeated in league play after their 3-set win against Morris last night. Every player chipped in to make it a great team win! Well done Zods!
The Varsity boys volleyball travelled to Altona last night to face the Aces in league play. The Zodiacs had a well rounded victory and won 3 sets to 1. Ryan B lead the charge with 10 kills and strong play in the back court. Ryan B once again dominated the opposition with his serving and was a big presence at the net. A great team victory for the boys! Practice has been cancelled for today.
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!
