The men’s volleyball team finished another weekend with mixed results, losing to the Guelph Gryphons last Friday and beating the Waterloo Warriors on Saturday.

The Gaels led 2-1 against the Gryphons before dropping the final two sets to lose 3-2. It was the second loss to the Gryphons this season — prior to that, the Gaels had won seven of eight encounters with Guelph.

Outside Joren Zeeman posted 11 kills against the Gryphons to move to first for kills in the CIS. He recorded 24 more kills the next day to beat the Warriors 3-2.

The split weekend leaves the Gaels at 6-5 for fifth in the OUA. The Gaels’ position is far below preseason expectations — they haven’t placed lower than third since 2005. The team will travel to play the 7-2 McMaster Marauders in Hamilton tonight and the 4-5 York Lions on Saturday.
