March 2, 2019 – Our 15u Legend girls fought hard last weekend to come up with a bronze in select – their best finish yet! This tournament was a complete team effort with all girls playing well. They finished 1st in their pool and defeated MVC in the quarters. The team lagged behind the girls from SKY and their fast offense, losing the semi in 3 games. The girls ended strong, beating Defensa in 3 for the bronze! The MVP could’ve been any of the girls but the two best passers of the day were chosen to share the honours: Hope Nicholson & Lina Elkayed. Hope and Lina also had the best serving percentage. Looking forward to provincials!
March 3, 2019 – GOLDEN!!! Congrats to our 17U Legend Boys who have captured their first ever premier gold and are the first Rapids team to win a Grand Prix tournament! The boys defeated the number one seeded Ottawa Mavericks 3-1 (17-25, 25-23, 29-27, 28-26) in a crazy back and forth match!
Congratulations to Hawkin Paleczny of our 18u Boys Legend team on his commitment to the the Brock University Men’s Volleyball Team! Hawkin signed his commitment letter on Friday February 22nd at the Badgers season finale in front of family, club and high school teammates, and friends! He will join his 18u Head Coach Matt Ragogna (Current Badgers Assistant Coach) next season donning Badger Red! From Coach Matt: Hawkin has grown his entire volleyball career since 14u through the Niagara Rapids Volleyball organization. His hard work, growth, and motivating demeanor have paid off and we (as Brock University) are thrilled to have him join our growing team! I can’t wait to keep working with Hawkin on the court and transitioning to the next level! Congrats Hawkin!
February 23, 2019 – Our 12U Legend team won silver at the Championship level. (Championship level is the highest calibre of ball for 12U, so this was quite an accomplishment.) After finishing first in their pool, the Legend showed a lot of resilience to come back to win their quarters against Leaside White in 3 and their semis against London Great White Sharks in 3. The 12U team lost in 3 to the undefeated Leaside Red team. The improvement among all team members is so noticeable; their passion and dedication are palpable; and the parents’ support at times is deafening. Jaelyn Cameron stepped up her game; Marissa Colbey dug deep to play through an injury; and Aurora Blundell and Mattea DiBacco, because of their steady ball control, were co-MVPs. Their hard work and commitment are paying off.
February 23, 2019 – Congrats to our 16u Legend Girls who won Gold at their 17u tournament in Kitchener! Awesome team effort by everyone. They played hard, dropping only 1 set all day! Well done girls!
February 16, 2019 – The 17U boys legend team captured their second silver of the season playing in 18U championship! The boys cruised through pool play and their quarter final without dropping a set, then battled hard for an impressive 3 set win against Forest City 17U in the semis! Unfortunately, they ran out of gas and dropped a tough 2 set match to Forest City 18U in the gold medal match. Despite coming up just short, the boys had an excellent day of extra reps and trying out new systems in preparation for Grand Prix in 2 weeks at Mohawk College!

For the first time this season, the Summits came 1st in their pool after 2 gruelling matches to 3 sets each. After a quick 25m lunch, they were back on the court fighting their way thru their 3rd match heading into the medal round for just the 2nd time this season. After being defeated by the hard hitting PVC Flames in 2, they fought back against the Titans Impact winning in 2 for the Bronze medal! Break out day and eventual Tournament MVP awarded to #29 Alaina Larochelle for earning 18 points on her amazing short serve, 5 kills and 5 thundering blocks that were show stoppers!
