Men’s Varsity Volleyball Team 2013-2014
The Men’s Volleyball Team was back at it for another season this year.
With the welcoming of six new players, the team started the season with a new slate and some new goals. The addition of first year setter Jordan Larocque gave the team new options for their offence, while new middle Dane Sauvé provided some new speed and blocking.
The team has taken no steps back this year and seeing that they are only losing 5th year Thomas McMullen, the team will have full veteran line up in the 2014-2015 season. While the team has not managed to shake the monkey on their back yet, they are working relentlessly at the KMCSC everyday honing their skills.
Senior players Logan Morris, Matt Howse, Patrick Poulin and Evan Murray are striving to mold the team into a new breed of volleyball players who will change their current course. Returning players Adam Lupton, Jaden Rook and Vincent Sauvé keep the intensity up at practice by refusing to accept mediocrity in their performance and challenging the rest of the team.
It will not take long before first year players Blake McClelland and Edgar Gonzalez get to feel the excitement of their first OUA win as a Paladin. The coaching staff of Steve Leknois, Matt Somerville and Richard Amos, as well as many other ex-cadets and military personnel, are devoting all of their time in order to give the team the tools they need to succeed. The team has the desire and skills to change their fate, now all they have to do is prove it out on the court.
Men’s OUA Fencing Championships
Day 1 – Individual
Second year fencer Jon Wilson won the bronze medal in men’s sabre while Justin Conroy was 4th!
In épée, Harrison Kelertas was 7th, just missing the medal round after a 15-14 loss in the quarter-finals. Graham Austin was 10th after losing a close match in the round of 16 to the eventual gold medallist by a score of 15-13.
In men’s foil, Vladimir Melnikov finished 16th.
Day 2 – Team
Men’s épée finished 4th after losing a hard fought bronze medal match to Queen’s 24-23 in overtime. The guys also had a come from behind victory against U of T in the quarterfinals, winning 44-42 after trailing late in the match.
Men’s sabre finished 5th after losing a close match to Carleton in the quarterfinals.
Our relatively inexperienced men’s foil team finished 6th.
Overall, RMC finished 6th in the battle for the OUA Championship banner, an improvement from last year’s 8th place. Not too bad for a rebuilding year!
