Visitors to the Smithville Christian High School (SCHS) YouTube channel may have already seen footage of the Senior Boys Volleyball team putting their athletic prowess into practice. The skillful teamwork demonstrated by the SCHS volleyball players in the “Sr. Boys Volleyball SOSSA Champions!” video, is was what helped the team win provincial gold at last week’s OFSAA tournamnent in North Bay.
“This team’s success was based on the ability to play volleyball, team chemistry and how much these guys wanted it and played together as a team,” says SCHS head coach Tim de Vries.
Players began the tournament feeling well rested and focused, he says. A serious desire to win, combined with a confidence in their own abilities, remained strong throughout each game.
