St. Benedict recently played host to 14 girls teams and 12 boys teams for the annual Bears Classic Elementary Volleyball Tournament.
After round robin play in the boys division, St. Raphael A, Algonquin, Jessie Hamilton and St. Francis B emerged on top. St. Raphael went on to defeat Algonquin in semi-final action, while Jessie Hamilton eliminated St. Francis B. The Championship finals went to Jessie Hamilton who defeated St. Raphael in a well fought match.
In the girls division, pool winners were Marymount A, St. David A, R.L. Beattie and Jessie Hamilton. Marymount A went on to defeat Jessie Hamilton, while St. David beat Jessie Hamilton, setting up a final championship match between Marymount A and St. David. In the end, it was St. David Dragons over the Marymount Regals in a hard fought set.
All players, coaches and fans are to be commended on their fantastic
enthusiasm and sportsmanship.
