In support of the SJHS senior boys volleyball team, many students of St. Joe’s High School gathered in the gymnasium Tuesday, September 25th to cheer on the team and enjoy some live sports entertainment. And an entertaining game it was. Starting with a four-point streak, the boys led an intense 3 sets, challenging the opposing Fellowes Falcons, and eventually pulled through to beat the Falcons with a score of 2 sets to 1.

The Jags conquered the opposition in the first set with a score of 25 to 13. Beautifully executed serves and strong spikes led the team to victory over FHS.

Both teams called a time-out at the 24:23 mark in the second set, Jags leading, as the atmosphere in the Den grew heavier and the crowd sat in anticipation. SJHS needed only one more point to pull ahead, and Fellowes needed one to tie the set. The intensity favoured the Jags as the Falcons failed to make the ball over the net, changing the score to a tight 25:23, but nonetheless a victory for the team.

Already having won two sets, the Jags knew they had already conquered the visiting team. However, the Falcons produced a reverse score of set two, winning 25:23 over the Jags in yet again a very tight score, displaying both the teams’ dedication and careful execution of each strategy.

Thanks to everyone who came out and showed their support to the team. SJHS hopes to see another great turnout next game, and for a successful season for the boys.
