SUNDAY November 27, 2016
MEN’S AND WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL TEAMS FINISH UP THE FIRST HALF OF THEIR REGULAR SEASON BEFORE THE WINTER BREAK. THEY’VE HAD A TREMENDOUS TWO MONTHS SO FAR COMPETING WITH THE BEST OF THE BEST FOR THEIR OUA DEBEUT SEASON. BOTH TEAMS HAVE PLAYED A TOTAL OF EIGHT GAMES, AND CAN’T WAIT UNTIL THE SEASON STARTS BACK UP AGAIN IN JANUARY.
With 4 home games and 4 away games completed, both Men’s and Women’s Volleyball teams have put in a tremendous fight against competing teams.
Highlights of the season so far would include the Women’s team’s legendary win against The Royal Military College on October 30, 2016. Trent and RMC battled it out for 5 long sets and our Women’s Excalibur came out on top with a HUGE 3-2 final.
An epic weekend it was on November 11, 2016 when both Trent Excalibur Men’s and Women’s Volleyball teams went head to head on the Excalibur home court against the Brock Badgers. Both school teams had to step up their game this weekend as both volleyball teams have entered into the OUA for their very first regular season. Our Excalibur Men’s team put up a fantastic fight winning the first set of the game with a score of 25-23. Setting the bar high, the Brock Badgers knew they had to step up their game for the next 3 sets. The game ended with a tough final score of 3-1 for the Brock Badgers, However our Men’s team kept the Badger’s on their toes as they would match Brock point for point throughout the entire game.
The Excalibur Women’s team managed to hash out a PHENOMENAL win against the Badger’s women’s team that momentous weekend. In the first set our women’s Excalibur matched the Badgers point for point until the final which landed Brock a winning set of 25-23. The next 3 sets were a blur of points and kills for our Women’s team as they were victorious in defeating the Badgers 25-22, 26-24 and 25-20. Winning the final 3 sets secured a BIG WIN for our Women’s team.
With 10 games left for the Men and 11 games left for the Women, both teams are excited to get back into the season come January 14th, 2017 with their first game of the new year against the Nipissing Lakers.
