The Niagara Rapids Black 15U girls won the gold medal at the Ontario Volleyball Association Championship Level McGregor Tournament held recently in Kitchener with a 25-14, 25-17 win over the Halton Hurricanes. After a poor start in the pool play they came together to win the quarter-final match (25-21, 27-25) over the Guelph Grizzlies and then won a close semi-final match (14-25, 25-14, 17-15) over the Forest City Green. They now move up to the highest Premier Level against the top nine teams in Ontario.
