The Gilsele-Lalonde senior girls volleyball team successfully defended their OFSAA 'AA' volleyball championship on Wednesday and they did so in impressive fashion.

The Titans lost just one set in seven matches on their way to winning the gold medal in three straight sets over St. Michael High School from Stratford.

The lone bump in the road to the provincial championship came in the semi-final against Eden High School from St, Catherines. After winning the first set 25-19, they lost the second set 25-22, only to bounce back and win the next two sets 25-19, 25-22.

They got off to a good start in the gold medal match as well, winning the first set 25-20. The second set was a back and forth affair, with the Titans prevailing 27-25.

Needing just one more set to claim gold, the Titans didn't leave anything to chance and closed out the match with a convincing 25-19 win.

With six holdovers from last year's championship team in Nathalie Maranger, Ana Martin, Catharine Loranger, Rebecca Roy. Sabrina Roy and Andrea Maranger, the Titans were the number one seed heading into the tournament.

They lived up to their advance billing by sweeping past all four of their opponents in the round robin portion of the tournament in straight sets.

They then blew past Coburg DCI West 25-12, 25-6, 25-7 in the quarterfinals.

The Samuel Genest Lazors weren't as fortunate. After losing the first two sets in the quarterfinal match against Eden High School, they battled back to force a fifth set tiebreaker only to lose

Meanwhile at the AAA championships in Kitchener-Waterloo, the two time defending champion Louis-Riel Rebelles were upset in the quarterfinals, losing in two straight sets to Waterdown District High School from Hamilton.

T he Gisèle-Lalonde Titans roster includes Rébecca Roy, Nathalie Drouin, Ana Martin, Andréa Marenger, Catharine Loranger, Geneviève Gignac, Sabrina Roy,and Alexis Obryan. Coach Marcel Martin is also pictured. File photo
