Conestoga College’s varsity teams were busy practising and competing in various tournaments in January, and this month will be no exception.
The weekend of Jan. 17 the indoor soccer teams competed at Centennial College’s tournament. The women’s team made it to the semifinals and the men’s team was eliminated during the quarter-finals.
The varsity badminton team is currently practising for their upcoming regional tournament at Lambton College on Feb. 7 and 8. Last year they did not place high enough to compete in provincials, however, this year they look to change that. Coach Michael Kam said earlier this season that he was emphasizing the fundamentals at practices, including cardio development, which he hopes will result in team members making it to provincials.
Since their return after the holiday break, the men’s and women’s volleyball teams have been busy playing games, however, only the women’s team has had any success. Their return has seen them on a three-game win streak. The men’s team sits at 0-3. Both teams were to travel to Windsor on Jan. 25, but due to poor weather conditions the games were postponed. The upcoming schedules for both teams can be found at www.ocaa.com/.
The men’s and women’s indoor soccer teams will be competing at George Brown College’s tournament this Friday. Afterwards only two tournaments remain until the teams start to play their regional tournaments which will take place between March 3 and 22.
