·         On Friday night, the junior boys volleyball team closed their season in spectacular fashion in the Halton Championship.  The boys dominated the first set, cruising to an easy 25-15 win.  In the second set, the Kielburger Spartans rallied, making a much closer match, but the boys pushed hard in an amazing three point run to win it 27-25.  Player of the game goes to Robert Spataru for his relentless, unstoppable hitting.  The win caps an amazing season for this dedicated group of boys.  They opened their season with a tough fought loss, then used that loss to motivate them to work and play harder.  Over the course of the following six weeks, they brought home three tournament gold medals, and ended their seasons with an unbelievable thirty and one record, having never lost another game.  Congratulations to all the boys on an amazing season!!
