18U Legacy End OVA Careers With Silver Medal; Busecan and Cavender Selected as All-Stars

The 18U Boys Legacy team finished their final OVA tournament with a silver medal in Division1, Tier 1, their best finish ever at a provincial championships.

On day one, the squad went undefeated with wins over Storm Inferno (25-20, 25-23), Durham Attack (21-25, 25-18, 19-17), and Pakmen (20-25, 27-25, 15-13). Having placed first in their pool, they were well-positioned for the quarters and semis on day two.

After a four-set victory in the quarters over Storm Riptide (25-21, 25-16, 17-25, 25-21), the team was set to again face the four-time provincial champion Durham Attack. After trading back and forth through the first four sets (25-20, 23-25, 25-15, 21-25), the deciding fifth set brought about one of the most exciting games of the tournament. After falling to a 12-14 deficit, and facing defeat with the next lost point, the players rallied and captured the next four points, surging ahead and taking the final set and match victory with a 16-14 win. It was indeed an exciting game, and very entertaining for everyone who came to watch.

After a night of rest, the squad was set to face the very talented and motivated Pakmen group in the final. After the emotional heights of the previous evening's semi final, the team had a difficult time bringing the energy and intensity needed to compete, and dropped all three sets to their competitors from Mississauga (19-25, 11-25, 18-25).

Having represented their club and city well, though, the team deserves to feel proud of their play and enjoy their silver-medal finish. Well done!

The team is also celebrating the announcement that two of its players, middle blocker Hayden Cavender and libero George Busecan, were names as 18U Boys Provincial All-Stars. Congratulations!

The squad has returned to training and are preparing for the 2018 Volleyball Canada National Championships, to be held in Edmonton from May 20-22. With a high ranking going into the tournament, the squad will be looking for another medal-winning performance.

Good luck, Legacy, and Go Preds!


Signings Continue For 18U Legacy

The 18U Predators Legacy Team, coached by Lynn Vicic, has added to their already busy list of post-secondary commitments for 2018-19, with two more being added this past week.

Middle Blocker Cody Mitchell, a native of Kitchener, has officially declared and signed with the University of Guelph. The son of Andy and Kim battled through an injury that ended his 2016-17 season early and, after a year of rehab and recovery, he re-established himself as an important piece of the Legacy team this year. His positive outlook on life and willingness to learn have made him a valued and respected member of the squad in all four of his years as a Predator, and he will make an excellent addition to the Gryphon program.

The team will also be sending a second player to train with the National Excellence Program. Joining Sauli Lianga in Gatineau will be fellow outside hitter Alexander Mrkalj. The St. Catharines resident, and son of Andjelko and Sladjana, has been a Predator for three years. A recipient of numerous awards and distinctions over the course of his career, he brings a strong physical presence and athleticism to the court. He is keen to develop his knowledge and skills in the NEP environment, and is looking forward to the intense and focused training it will provide.

Go Preds!!!!


Preds 14U Synergy Make It Back-To-Back Golds

Synergy2018PCApril 21, 2018 - The Synergy 14U girls made Predators history last weekend. The defending Ontario champs won gold in 14U D1T1 to become the first Preds team to take two titles.

“It’s been such an amazing season,” said Coach Lisa Watson. “There was a lot of pressure on these girls. They were in the spotlight every tournament. And they performed like champions.”

After winning the final tournament of the regular season, Synergy entered provincials as the top overall seed. Their preliminary pool featured Venom Vipers (16), Hamilton Smash Teal (9) and MVC Black (8). Each rival fell in straight sets as Synergy finished the day 3-0 to stay in the top position.

For the power pool on day two, Synergy met Scarborough Synergy Dynamite (10), Aurora Storm Hurricanes (5) and Durham Attack Blackout (6). Despite some great battles, it was another clean sweep for the Preds. The 3-0 finish kept them as the top seed in tier 1 headed into the playoffs.

The quarter final saw Synergy take on Phoenix Legacy (3). The Preds came out strong, winning 25-11 in the first set. Phoenix pushed back hard in the second. But the Synergy girls would not give in. They won the marathon set 31-29 to head to the semi. There they would meet Halton Hurricanes Black (4).

“Halton always gave us such a fight, every time we played them this year,” added Watson. “They’re a very strong team and we knew we had to bring our absolute best.” Hurricanes seemed determined right from the start, taking the first set 25-17. The second set was back and forth until Halton began to pull away. With a 23-17 lead, they looked poised to win in two sets. Again, Synergy would simply not give in. With the game – and the match – on the line, they won the serve back to make it 23-18, and then swept the next seven points in a thrilling comeback that electrified the fans. They would go to a third set. If the loss affected Halton’s play going into the third, they didn’t show it. They led 8-6 when the sides switched, and grew their lead to 10-7. But it wasn’t enough. A couple great attacks and a block later and the tide shifted. Synergy went on to win 15-12 and head to the final.

For the gold medal match, the Preds would once again play MVC Black. MVC had surprised a few teams with a great power pool and playoff run. They beat Aurora Storm Hurricanes in three sets in their semi. With such an emotional win, some thought Synergy would let down their guard in the gold medal. They were wrong. They washed over MVC 25-9, 25-13 to claim gold once again.

Congratulations to Synergy – and their coaches, Lisa Watson, Khira Adams and Ryan Clutton. CHAMPIONS AGAIN! #GOPREDS! We are #PREDSNATION! We’re now heading to Nationals in Edmonton in May!


Both Preds 14U Girls Teams Crack Provincial Top 10

With euphoria sweeping Preds Nation over 14U Synergy winning Provincial Gold, what can't be lost is that fact that we placed 2 14U teams in the provincial top 10. The Preds 14U United team, coached by Dave Mash and Jerod Hawkins, quietly went about their work winning the Division 1, Tier II Silver medal to finish their season ranked 10th in the province.

Two weeks ago, United played in the 15U Provincial Championship and won the Division 3, Tier I gold medal and hoped to continue their fine play in the 14U Championships. One the first day of the 14U Championships, the team came out very flat, losing all three of their matches. The girls showed their grit on the final 2 days, going undefeated until the DITII final, where the lost in 3 sets to Leaside.

With two top 10 teams at this age level, the future definitely does look good for the Preds.

Both 14U Teams

Go Preds!!!!
