Thursday was a tough pill to swallow for the excalibur volleyball teams, as they travelled to the outer-GTA to take on the Durham Lords. Seeded one above the men's team, a tough durham squad led the men to a 3-0 loss. This now brings the men's record to 8-3, and second in the division. The men were looking for a win as they returned home to Peterborough on Thursday night. They would get a chance at redemption as they faced the Georgian Grizzlies at home on Sunday afternoon, and their hard work paid off. In a nailbiter of a match, the men pulled off a 3-2 Win after a quickie comeback in the 3rd and 4th sets. This brings their season record to 9-3, putting them in a great position to soon clinch a playoff spot.
The Women's Volleyball Team had a similar week, losing to Durham on Thursday by a margin of 3-1. The girls did what they could, but were met with significant opposition vs. the 2nd-place Lords. Currently seeded 3rd, the women's team also hopes to clinch a playoff spot within the next few weeks. On Sunday, the women's team were ready for a win, and a win they got. They handily beat the Grizzlies, sweeping the match 3-0 - maintaining their 3rd-place conference spot.
Look for the Excalibur Volleyball program as they take on Canadore College at home next Saturday.
