The Rideau District High School Lions won silver Tuesday, March 3 at the EOSSAA Junior A Girls’ Volleyball Championship, held at St. Mary Catholic High School in Brockville.
Despite a strong effort, the Lions fell in the final to the St. Mary’s Crusaders 25 – 17, 14 – 25, 15 – 13. Setter Paige McCourt served 10 straight points to help win the second set, while Makenna Taylor had some key hits and a strong defensive game.
“It was a fantastic day,” said RDHS Coach Wendy McCourt. “Our junior girls played amazingly well all day. I couldn’t have been more proud of their commitment, fight, and respect for each other. I’m very excited to see how these girls develop as we move into senior competition next year. I believe they have the mental toughness and drive to be an OFSAA contender.”
