County girls join Ravens volleyball teams

Beside coach Duffy McGuire is Alicia Orsborne, a Grade 9 student at PECI. Alicia is one of the team captains, setter as well as power hitter.

With the County’s Alicia Orsborne as setter, power hitter and one of the team captains, the Belleville Ravens Girls 16U Volleyball team took part in its first Ontario Volleyball Association (OVA) tournament of the season recently in Ottawa.
Powered by the strength of 90 per cent plus serving over the course of the tournament, the Ravens’ outstanding play resulted in two set wins and two set losses.
In pool play they lost their first set of the year in a hard fought, three game match to the host Maverick Stampede.  They rebounded in their next match to easily defeat the Phoenix in two straight games.  In the afternoon elimination round, the Ravens lost two close games to Kingston Pegasus and then finished with a spirited three game victory over the Peterborough Thunder.

Next tournament for the Ravens is to be Dec.15th.

16U Ravens are coach Duffy McGuire with Alicia Orsborne, Margaret Hails, Mackenzie McCullough, Tabi McGuire, Hannah Gunning, Taylor Wildenbeest, Brianna Brake, Olivia Christiannse.

The journey to the provincials has also begun for the 14U Belleville Ravens Team with their first tournament recently in Cobourg against eight teams.
Alexandra Hall, of the County, has joined the newest and youngest team in the Belleville Ravens Volleyball Club. The team fell short in straight sets in their first match against the strong number 1 ranked team the Ottawa Fusion.
Their next game they rallied and split the sets and won in an exciting 3rd set against the Northumberland Breakers. The rest of the day they failed to find their rhythm and placed 7th overall.
“This was a big learning experience for the new team and placing 7th bodes well for the developing players,” says Eric Howard. “The team now knows what it takes to compete at a provincial level.  They’ll be ready for the next tournament in January. Until then the Belleville Ravens will be “Flying high and hitting hard!”
