Men’s Volleyball come up big when needed

The Isles went 3-1 in Sunday’s tournament at Lionel Groulx and found themselves in another 3 way tie. This time the team came out on top thanks to a clutch straight sets victory over Brebeuf in the final match of the day. This result will have them in the top pool for the last tournament of the regular season. Overall they could finish somewhere from 3rd-5th depending on the results in 3 weeks.

For the second tournament in row the team was led by veteran middle Tim Quinn with 17 kills, 14 blocks and an overall +23. Despite momentarily losing his cool, captain Tyler Tweedie Smith was consistent on the day with 16 kills and 8 aces. Rookie Matthew Campbell helped carry the team to victory by adding 15 kills if his own.

Men’s basketball with a big home win on senior night

With an 82-78 win over Edouard Montpetit the Isles are now in 6th place 1 game ahead of the Lynx for the final provincial playoff spot. Both teams have 2 games remaining and the Lynx would hold a potential tie breaker over the Isles. John Abbott will be on the road to Outaouais and Vanier to close out the season while Edouard faces Montmorency and St Lambert.

Against the Lynx the Isles had 5 players in double digits; Terrell Shaw Campbell with 15, Adam Pace – 14, Rupert Jr Edwards – 12, Elie Mouyal and Donovan Allen-Beckles with 11 apiece.

Swim team still on top of the standings

Our men’s team continue their dominance as they have yet to lose a meet this year. Combined with a 4th place finish by our women the Isles win their 6th consecutive meet. This all but guarantees a regular season championship. With one meet remaining for swimmers to post a qualifying time for provincials the final push is on.

Women’s basketball let one slip

The women’s basketball team squandered a seven-point third quarter lead Sunday afternoon and dropped a 70-55 decision to the first-place Montmorency Nomads. The Islanders led 51-44 with three minutes remaining in the third quarter but managed just four points in the final 13 minutes of play as Momo rallied for the hard-fought victory. Zoe Arvanitis led the Islander with 14 points while Andrea Batrla added 13.

Hockey splits weekend action

In a 5-1 loss to Limoilou Alyson Blanchette had the lone goal for the Isles. The team rebounded with a 4-2 win at Lionel Groulx with goals from Audrey Gervais, Laurie Hachez, Hailey Burns and Sandrine Hachez. Ariane Racine stops 17/19 shots to earn her 3rd win of the year in as many starts.
