THE UNIVERSITY OF Ottawa volleyball team’s (13-5 regular season, 2-1 playoffs) season came to a close today with a 3-1 set loss to the Queen’s University Golden Gaels (13-5 regular season, 3-0 playoffs) today at Montpetit Gym.

The Ontario University Athletics gold medal match pit two equally competitive teams against each other and the Golden Gaels came out victorious. Although the Gees were able to win their second set, tying the game at 1-1, they couldn’t prevent Queen’s from out-serving them in the third and fourth set for the gold.

“Let’s just talk about how good Queen’s was,” said head coach Lionel Woods after the game. “Queen’s forced us to do well. In game two we did [that], we served well, we didn’t miss as many … we were focused I thoughtand it just didn’t work out. I’m really proud of our kids for not backing off.”

“But man oh man, Queen’s just did awesome.”
