Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario hosted their elementary volleyball playoff weekend recently, with contrasting results when it comes to the boys and the girls draw.

The young ladies from Ste-Marie (Azilda) entered post-season play as the No. 1 seed and they did not let their foot off the gas, eliminating Ecole Publique de la Découverte, Félix-Ricard and the powerful St-Denis Tigres en route to the A championship.

The gold-medal winning team includes Sophie Beauchamp, Mélanie Cloutier, Maissie Gionest, Maxine Lemieux, Brianne Pilon, Mikayla Rochon, Danica Servant and Kyndra Young, as well as coaches Denis Castonguay and Anik Dumas-Lemieux.

Félix-Ricard captured bronze with a win over the Ste-Marie B team, with Jean-Paul II picking up the win in the Division B final and Notre-Dame (Hanmer) finishing third on the consolation side of the draw.

The boys side of the ledger was thrown into chaos thanks to the Silver Stick Hockey Tournament being held on the same weekend, with a large number of athletes from several schools busy on the ice.

After finishing fifth in regular-season play, Félix-Ricard earned bragging rights in the playoffs, upsetting higher-seeded teams from Jean-Paul II, Ste-Thérèse and Ste-Marie to garner the banner.

The Félix-Ricard lineup features Noah La Sorsa, Sylvain Gagnon, Jacob Poitras, Alexandre Giroux, Alexandre Rossini, Kaleb Mikic, Connor Brooks, Jackson Clark, Eric Atoh, Nicolas Bonin and Philippe Larochelle.

Ste-Thérèse climbed their way up with a bronze-medal performance, defeating Macdonald-Cartier, while Jean-Paul II knocked off E.S. Hanmer in the consolation final, and St-Denis bested Notre-Dame in the three/four matchup in Division B.
