Congratulations to the Jr. Girls Volleyball team who had an incredible week last week in the HSSAA playoffs. Snow day cancellations forced the team into a double header playoff matches against Acton in the quarter final and Milton in the semi final. The team managed to beat both teams quite easily to bring us to the Halton Championship on Tuesday morning at Sheridan College. We faced King's Christian Collegiate in the final. The team stayed focused and played hard and managed to beat them in two sets (25-19, 25-17). Many thanks to the many MMR fans, parents and staff that came out to support us at the event. We had a larger crowd in the audience there than KCC which helped us with the win!
