GCVI seniors, St. James juniors advance to volleyball finals
GUELPH – The Guelph CVI Green Gaels qualified for the District 10 high school senior girls’ volleyball final when they swept the Centennial Spartans 3-0 at GCVI Wednesday.
While it was a sweep for the Gaels, it wasn’t a runaway win as the Spartans kept them honest and within sight throughout.
The Gaels won 25-22, 25-20, 27-25.
GCVI had finished the regular season in second place at 12-2 while Centennial was third at 11-3. The teams split their regular-season meetings as the Gaels won 3-1 at Centennial Dec. 8 and the Spartans won 3-2 at GCVI Jan. 17.
St. James Lions finished first at 13-1 while the Ross Royals were fourth at 8-6. They’re to meet in the other semifinal that has been postponed until Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. at St. James, first due to the lockdown at Ross Wednesday and then the freezing rain on Friday.
GCVI is to play the St. James-Ross winner in the D10 final that is scheduled for Tuesday at 8 p.m. at the Guelph Gryphons Athletics Centre.
