Cambrian women bounce back for bronze
by Randy Pascal

With an impressive core of talent graduating at the end of this year, the Cambrian Golden Shield women's volleyball team were not quite prepared to go home empty-handed.

After suffering a frustrating first round loss at the OCAA Championships to the Fanshawe Falcons, a defeat that squashed their dreams of advancing to the gold medal game, the Shield bounced back to nab the one remaining medal that was still within their reach.

On Friday in Peterborough, the local ladies eliminated the host Trent Excalibur in straight sets (26-24, 25-21, 25-20) as all-star setter Jillian Shell was recognized as her team's "Player of the Game".

The Golden Shield went the distance Saturday morning, needing a full five sets to subdue the Redeemer Royals 20-25, 25-16, 25-11, 17-25 and 15-9. Sacré-Coeur graduate Emilie Lavoie took home honours as "Player of the Game", recording 11 kills, three service aces and four blocks for the Cambrian crew.

Back against an East division opponent with bronze medals on the line, the Golden Shield closed off the season in style, taking down the Georgian Grizzlies in four sets, 25-18, 23-25, 27-25 and 25-20.

Stephanie Walker (eight kills, four blocks) was recognized for her efforts with the "Player of the Game" award while teammate Shawna Metcalf was named to the OCAA Championship All-Star team.

The Golden Shield will be hit hard by graduation this off-season, with the loss of Metcalf, Shell, Fielding and Stephanie Walker providing some huge holes to be filled by Cambrian coaches Dale Beausoleil and Mike Margarit in the off-season.
