Our Grade 8 Volleyball Team had an incredible season doing very well in our competitive LMISSGVA league while winning the Gladstone Tournament and gold at ISAs. On Tuesday, the Tigers defeated LFA 2-0 in quarter final action but lost their semi final to Crofton (CHS). York House and CHS had a great rivalry all season long with YHS gaining the upper hand winning league games and the ISA final. However, CHS got the edge in the semi-final. Best of luck to the Falcons in the final and congratulations to our Tigers on a great season.

The Junior Tigers placed first overall in their league and on Wednesday, hosted playoff games at YHS. In the semi-final, York House defeated Crofton House 2-0 to advance to the LMISSGVA Championship final vs Notre Dame.

The Senior Tigers defeated Notre Dame on Monday in quarter final action 3-0 and on Wednesday, took on St. Thomas More Collegiate (STMC) in our league semi-final. YHS defeated STMC 3-0 to advance to the LMISSGVA Championship final vs CHS.

Seniors’ Night: Monday night was our graduating senior volleyball players final home game of the season. We honour these girls and thank them for their long commitment to YHS volleyball and all their contributions on and off the court. Hanna, Sydney, Rosie, and Katie have helped elevate Tigers volleyball to where it is today, among BC’s best teams. Thank you and we will miss you! We also want to thank their parents who have been a tremendous support over the years.
