In a very competitive division, Gees need to be better to compete The University of Ottawa Women’s volleyball team has started their year with a modest 3-6 record in the Réseau du sports étudiant du Québec (RSÉQ). Their quest to get back to the playoffs after missing last year’s elimination round will not be easy …

Ottawa led for the beginning of the first set, taking advantage of Toronto’s mistakes at the net. But it was Toronto’s attackers that made the difference in the long run, which the Gee-Gees couldn’t respond to consistently. Ottawa went on to win the next two sets, only to fall to Toronto in the final two.

Getting back into regular Ontario University Athletics (OUA) season play on Jan. 11, the Gees took on the Lakehead Thunderwolves in Thunder Bay. Left side Kaly Soro was key for the Gee-Gees as they swept the match 3-0 behind her 10-point performance.

Gee-Gees women’s volleyball returns this January to serve up some competitive match-ups, starting with two exhibition games against McGill on Jan. 7 and Montreal on Jan. 9.

The garnet and grey’s defence has to stay resilient, and their passing needs to get to the setter position in order to have quality kills. The team has to make it more difficult for their opponents if they want to have success later in the season.
