East end teams on roll at OFSAA volleyball championships

The east end is being well-represented at this year's Ontario Federation of School Athletic Association's volleyball championships as the Louis Riel Rebelles, the Gisele Lalonde Titans and the Samuel genest Lazors are so far undefeated in round robin action.

The defending champion Titans have won all four of their round robin games to advance to the AA quarterfinals in Amhertsberg, as have the fourth seed Lazors who also ran the table in round robin play. Meanwhile in Kitchener-Waterloo, the two-time defending champion Rebels are 2-0 at the AAA championships in Kitchener-Waterloo with two round robin games remaining.

The Titans have yet to drop a set after downing Norwell District Secondary School (25-15, 25-18), St. Michael Catholic High School (25-11, 25-12), Father Henry Carr High School (25-9, 25-6) and Sutton District High School (25-18, 25-9) in workmanlike fashion. The Lazors also made short work of their competition and now the two teams are heading to the quarterfinals.

The Titans will take on the 14th seed Coburg District Collegiate this afternoon, while Samuel Genest is up against the number five seed from St. Catherine Eden. Should both teams win, there's a distinct possibility they will meet in the semi-finals ina rematch of the NCSSAA championship final which the Titans won two sets to one.

The Rebelles still have to take care of business in Kitchener-Waterloo if they want to get into the playoffs. In earlier action today they beat Fellowes High School from Pembroke 25-11, 25-13 and then downed Galt Collegiate from Cambridge 25-23, 25-15.

Louis Riel is trying to become the first school since 1985 to three-peat and only the third school to win the OFSAA AAA championship three times.
