Both boys’ volleyball teams at Westside Secondary School are at the top of the District 4 standings after the regular season and will go into the playoffs as the top seed.

“Westside’s junior and senior boys’ volleyball teams are in the swing of a very strong season,” said Westside coach Jessica Shortt, who has led the seniors to back-to-back championships in previous seasons.

The senior team is in first place in the District 4 standings, going undefeated after five matches. They managed to blank their opponents in three of those matches.

There are six schools entered in competition this season.

The Westside Thunder seniors won the District title in 2019 and 2020 and are hoping to make it a three-peat this year.

There was no champion declared in 2021 after the COVID-19 pandemic restricted high school sports for that season.

Westside took over the top spot from Norwell District Secondary School who won the District, 14 years in a row.

In the playoffs, the Westside team will be up against fourth place Norwell District in the semi-final round.

The other semi-final will pit Wellington Heights Secondary School against Erin District High School.

The winners of the semi-final round will go on to play for the District championship.

All matches will be played at Westside on Wednesday, December 8.

The Westside junior boys’ volleyball team is also in first place in the standings going undefeated after four games.

The Westside junior team last won the District with back-to-back victories in 2017 and 2018.

They also took over from Norwell District after that school’s junior team with the District title for nine years in a row.

As the top seed team, the Westside Thunder juniors will host the playoffs and final game.

Westside will be up against Erin District High School in their semi-final match.

The other semi-final will have Centre Dufferin District High School meeting up with Wellington Heights Secondary School.

Winners of the semi-final round will move on to the final championship game.

Games will be played in the gym at Westside on Wednesday, December 8.
