Attention Flames, 

After a long and hard-fought season, the Junior and Senior Volleyball teams were able to secure a HOME playoff match. Starting at 3:30 PM today, both teams will play to try to secure a spot in next week's final. 

The Senior team is up with the first serve at 3:30, followed by the Junior match immediately after the Senior game is done. Both teams play Mother Teresa. 

Let's show MTS what school spirit at STA looks like and help ignite the flames of our Volleyball teams as they look to clinch our playoff matches, and secure spots in next week's finals that will take place at Fanshawe College. The teams and coaches would love to see you all there and help cheer on the teams!  Remember, the senior match starts at 3:30 PM and will be immediately followed by the Junior match once the first match is done.
