The boys finished 3 and 1 in pool play and advanced to the championship quarterfinal at Queens University on Friday at 6:30pm. The boys lost the most exciting match the coaches have ever seen in 12 years. Each set went right to the wire. (25-22, 25-20, 23-25, 25-22). The boys represented us well on and off the court. All the boys were very disappointed with the loss but they should be proud. Villanova went from a team who had never won a semi-final match to a team that won 3 WECSSAA championships and participated in 3 OFSAA championships. The coaches couldn't be any prouder of this group of boys.
