The Men’s John Abbott Volleyball team finished 2nd place in Section B after playing 4 intense games on January 31st. Their success put them to Section A to compete against the best. On February 21st, the team finished with 3 wins and only a single loss against the highest ranked team, Saint-Jerome. The Islanders forced the game into a third set until it ended 13-15. The team is in a good position to push higher and higher in terms of level of play and could qualify for provincials.
The team has been in fact doing magnificently despite having faced many injuries. The Men’s Volleyball team actually started off this season in Fall 2015 with 16 players and is now down to a mere 12. The team went through many changes to adjust to the loss of players, including new rotation systems that had to be implemented and learned. Furthermore, some players had to completely change positions. Nonetheless, the team’s spirit is high with everyone still going strong, and looking ahead at the upcoming tournaments. The next one will be on March 13th, followed by the regionals on March 20th where they can qualify for the Provincials on April 2nd and 3rd.
