St. Clair Men’s Volleyball Win Bronze at Thanksgiving Classic
The St. Clair College men’s varsity volleyball team got off to a solid start in pre-season play this past weekend.
The Saints travelled to Oshawa to take part in the Durham College Adidas Cup Thanksgiving Classic on Friday and Saturday and came home with the Bronze medal.
St. Clair opened up their pool play on Friday defeating the Loyalist Lancers 3-1 (25-20, 23-25, 25-21, 25-23). The Saints then defeated the Algonquin Thunder on Friday night by a score of 3-1 (25-17, 21-25, 28-26, 25-16).
On Saturday morning St. Clair had a showdown with the George Brown Huskies to determine who would play for the gold. Unfortunately the Saints fell 3-1 (26-28, 25-21, 25-20, 25-20) and had to settle for the bronze medal match against the Fleming Knights on Saturday afternoon. St. Clair was victorious in this match winning 3-1 (25-18, 19-25, 25-16, 25-20). The Saints Zach Draper (London) was named a tournament All-Star.
The Saints will now prepare for their OCAA season opener when they travel to Ancaster to take on the Redeemer Royals on Saturday, October 20 at 4 pm.
