Belmont fall sports ready to roll

Volleyball and soccer in full swing at Belmont school

With classes back in session, Belmont sports are in full swing.

All four volleyball teams are ready to start the season.  Ken Low, athletic director is excited for both the senior boys’ and girls’ teams this year.

“They should both be very competitive this year,” he said.

The senior boys’ team is mostly made up of Grade 11 students but not concerned for the lack of seniors on the team.

It’s too early in season to predict the junior boys’ and girls’ teams strengths, Lowe said.

“They are all new and they are a keen bunch and over time they should get better,” he added.

The boys’ soccer team also started, with a group of 20 players ready to dominate the field.

Lowe said the team should be promising this year as many of the players have already been active in community soccer teams.
