The Spiking Sharks Strike Gold!
Oh my gosh! What an exciting day yesterday was. It was not so exciting at 4:00 AM when my alarm went off and I had to get up to drive Joel to Woodbridge for a volleyball tournament, but since 4:00 AM is my usual getting out of bed time for work, I was okay.....I just don't usually do it on a Sunday. We headed off for Woodbridge at about 5:30 AM with our healthy snacks, lots of Gatorade, knee pads, shorts and shoes! We got to the school at 8:00 (only an hour to spare!!) I'd rather arrive early than be rushing to get there. The tournament started at 9:00 AM and we played the second game. The tournament format was a little different than we are used to...we usually play 2 games against each team in the pool - but this tournament was a best 2 out of 3 games........every one went to the third game except for one! The boys came out on top of each game they played!!! It was so exciting. They went into the Gold medal match playing a team from Guelph. The Guelph team took us a nasty 25 - 12 the first game...not a good showing from our guys, but they came back and won the second game 25 - 22, which forced that third rubber match. The rubber match is always a 15 point game, where the winner must win by 2 points. Guess what the final score was...........15 - 13. Man oh man. That one was hard on the fans!!!!! We were within a point all along the game. It was very exciting and lots of fun when they ended up victorious! Great job boys! See ya at practice tonight! Chow for now, Jacqui
