Volleyball makes it 3 for 3…Grade 8 Volleyball, Junior Volleyball, and Senior Volleyball are all ISA CHAMPIONS!

This past week highlights …

Senior Volleyball: ISA Champs

SENIOR VOLLEYBALL ISA CHAMPIONS
Our Senior Tigers looked like the #1 AA Team in BC this weekend going undefeated at the 16 team Senior ISA Championships hosted by Crofton House (CHS). The Tigers cruised through round robin play and the playoff round and met CHS, BC’s #1 AAA team in the championship final. There was a packed house at CHS with a huge Tigers crowd matching CHS in size and volume. Our Tigers played great. We dominated game one and held on for a 25-23 win. Game two started great as well until the CHS coach protested to the referee, delaying the game, and destroying our momentum. CHS bounced back and took game two 25-21. Game three was tight throughout but our Tigers, facing game point at 14-13, bounced back to win 16-14. Here is a video of the final point

JUNIOR TIGERS – 6W – 1L at SENIOR ISAs:
As if our Senior Tigers didn’t provide enough excitement at ISAs, our Junior Team was also among the 16 teams at the Senior tournament and were amazing. Our Junior’s won Junior ISAs last week. At Senior ISAs they won all their games except for one vs CHS Seniors, but they played them tough. Our Junior Tigers beat the following Senior Teams: Collingwood, Mulgrave, St. Michaels University School, St. Margaret’s School, St. John’s and CHS Junior’s. Had the Junior Tigers not been playing exhibition play, they likely would have placed 5th among 16 teams. Great weekend Juniors!

SENIOR FIELD HOCKEY TEAM WIN the LMISSAA LEAGUE TITLE
Our Senior Tigers Team defeated CHS in a dramatic 1-0 game last week to claim our LMISSAA Sr II League title.
