Despite a valiant late-season push, the Loyalist Lancers weren’t able to improve their playoff lot on the final day of the Kingston Area Secondary Schools Athletic Association senior girls volleyball season.

The Lancers went into the day 7-4, part of a tie for fifth place with the Frontenac Falcons. Loyalist upset the third-place Holy Cross Crusaders in straight sets Thursday, but Frontenac was also victorious, with a 3-2 home-court victory over the Ernestown Eagles.

The Eagles’ performance was another courageous effort, as Ernestown, 4-7, needed a victory to catch the idle Marie-Rivier Dragons for eighth place and the final playoff spot. The Eagles had won their previous two matches to put themselves in position to challenge for that spot.

It took a while for Jacob Gosselin to get used to his new team.

It took some time for his new teammates to get used to him.

Now that the compatibility issues appear to be nicely resolved, the rest of the league might have to re-think how to deal with the Regiopolis Notre Dame Panthers.

Gosselin scored  a season-best 25 points Thursday to lead the Panthers to an 83-34 win over the Bayridge Blazers on the final day of the Kingston Area Secondary Schools Athletic Association senior basketball season.

It was the second game in a row that Gosselin has led the Panthers in scoring, and that’s a nice piece of news for a Regi team that had been scuffling its way to the playoffs, having lost three of its previous four games, to finished the regular year 5-4—after a 3-0 start.

It was cold Wednesday night in the Constantine Arena. With the heaters not on above the stands, it was about as cold as it used to be when it was just the Constantine Rink, the kind of cold where you have to go outside in the middle of February to get warm.

A bystander asked Queen’s Golden Gaels hockey coach Brett Gibson how he was feeling, as he passed by on his way to the bench for the third period of his team’s game with the Royal Military College Paladins. “I’m as cold as my team,” he said, brusquely.

Brrrrrr.

By their own admission, the Queen’s Golden Gaels are giving up a lot.

When Ontario University Athletics wrote the women’s basketball schedule in the summer, it showed the Gaels with a home game against the Windsor Lancers. If you’ve got to play the five-time defending national champions, it’s best to do so with the amenities of home, and without an eight-hour bus trip leading up to it.

With one phone call, the Gaels gave it all away.

How do they feel about that?

“We were pretty fired up,” fifth-year Gael Jenny Wright recalled of the day they heard the news.

It’s not what you think.

These Gaels were fired up with delight.

Marie-Rivier Dragons enhanced their playoff hopes Tuesday, with a 3-1 high school senior girls volleyball win over the Bayridge Blazers.

The result was a bit of an upset, in that Bayridge, having won six of its previous seven matches, began the day 6-4, two games better than the Dragons, who used the victory to improve their record to 5-6. That allowed Marie-Rivier to stay two points ahead of Ernestown in the battle for eight place—and the final quarter-final berth that goes with it—even though the Eagles won their match Tuesday, 3-0 over the Granite Ridge Gryphons in Sharbot Lake.

Playing at Bayridge, Marie-Rivier won the first set 25-22, dropped the second to the home team 25-8, then claimed the victory with set wins of 25-15 and 25-21.
