The JV Boys Volleyball team had an outstanding showing at the NPC Nighthawk Invitational tournament this weekend. Despite needing to play three games in a row in two different gyms in Winkler without a break, the boys played superb. They finished first in their pool, then beat Gab Roy in the semi final to be matched up (again) with Linden Christian in the final. The Zods won the first set quite easily, but could not muster up enough energy to win the match in the next two sets. Please join the boys this Saturday - BRING ON THE ZODIAC NATION - as we host our home Tournament at GVC!
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!
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!
