On the court I have been told of the successes of the 16u Outlaws getting to the finals at 17u championship. So close to a spot in the Grand Prix. Also I recieved a message about the tete a tete battle between the Six Shooters and the Revoler in the end the Shooters take the Gold over the Revolvers at the 14u Trillium and the Goldiggers run at the medal round in championship 14u.

Unfortunately the results page is not a lot of help in finding a full picture, perhaps later  

Then I look at the CIS stage and find Mavericks headlining the results leading into Nationals. We all know of the battle between the Maverick  alumni laden Gee Gees ( Myriam and Kelsie English '10, Steph Theiler '10, Alix Durivage '11, Vero Caya'12, Callie Soro and Mezzie Tamarat '13, and the latest sensation Sabrina Roy '14) taking on fellow Alum Charlotte Sider ('10) in the OUA women's final. Both teams will return to the Goldring centre at the U of T this weekend to compete with another Mav alumni, Sophie Carpentier('12)  and her Spartans from Trinity Western and Vicki Savard('11) and les Carabin de Montreal.

Over on the men's side we are so proud of Jori Mantha's ('10) return to full health in a stellar performance to win the OUA title over Phillipe Piche ('13) and Brandon Baker's('11) Waterloo Warriors. Following both of those teams to Regina are OUA Bronze medalist and Nick Pirnat's('13) York Lions. The Lions will match up against AUS Champions and Scott Bailey's('13) Tigers from Dalhousie in the first round, and of course we will all be curious to see what 3rd year standout and the only current Mav alum with a CIS title to his name, Bruno Lortie('12) will be up to with his Laval Rouge et Or teammates. Check out the action this weekend at

On my own side of pride proclamation and attention will be focussed  in Hamilton at this season's OCAA championships where Alana MacLean('10) will try to push her Excalibur teammates from Trent University past the Humber Hawks armed with alumnus Adara Dillabagh('14) and a shot at the CCAa tournament next week. 

If you noted the number of ('10) girls in this article. I would like to remind them of a promise we made 5 years ago to "stand by me" through thick and thin. Let's all raise a glass to an amazing 5 years and finish in a blaze of glory.

Lastly and by far not the least of my emotion came when I was struck with overwhelming sense of pride in an e-mail recieved from Tammy St Denis with the news that the the club was awarded Volleyball Canada Accredation status for the second season in a row. A measure of the commitment and dedication of all the people who have embraced our family and its desire to provide quality programming for youth.

A lot to celebrate, if only there were someplace I could go for a party...
