St. Mike's Sr. Girls defeat Perth Blue Devils to capture gold in Ottawa

The St. Michael Senior girls volleyball team travelled to Ottawa on Friday and took home the gold medal in the 2014 Holy Trinity Tornado Senior girls volleyball tournament. The Mustangs got out to a slow start on the day splitting their first match against Omer-Deslauriers before bouncing back and taking two straight from Merivale High school and Sacred Heart CHS to finish first in their pool. In the quarter finals, the girls had a rematch against Merivale and squeaked by in a tight match to advance to the next round. Le Sommet posed a serious challenge in the semi-finals but the strong serves and tenacious St. Michael defense was too much for the Hawkesbury team who fell 25-20 and 25-23 to the Mustangs. The previously undefeated EOSSAA rivals, Perth Blue Devils, roared out to win the first match in the finals 25-18 before falling to the Mustangs in the second set 25-19. In the third and deciding set, the St. Michael crew built an 8-1 lead before watching the Blue Devils scratch back to within two. With the game on the line, Erika Tanguay came up with a huge block in the middle to seal the victory for the Mustangs. Strong serving and hitting from Shanel Quenneville and Michelle Wilson along with excellent setting from Katie Sands helped lead the Mustangs to gold. St. Michael begins the regular season on Wednesday against cross-town rival North Grenville in what is shaping up to be an exciting year for the Mustang volleyball team who set their sights on Hawaii in March of 2015.
