The ONtario Champion Gaels are bringing their talents to town tomorrow

Feeling the winter blues? Come on out and lift your spirits and see some of the best mens’ volleyball in the country.

The Queens University Mens’ Volleyball team will be demonstrating their incredible athletic skills on Thursday, Dec. 30 at Mark Isfeld gym. The Gaels are the 2010 Ontario CIS Champs, ranked fifth in the country and boast national-level players. They are led by their captain and setter, Comox Valley’s very own Jackson Dakin.

The event is a fundraiser for the Comox Valley Strikers Volleyball Club and will be fun for the whole family. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. with volleyball antics for the crowd at 7 p.m. followed by the Queens’ warm-up and inter-squad game.

“You will be amazed with the level of play, the heights these players jump and their power when hitting the ball,” an event spokesperson said. “Come on out and witness phenomenal volleyball and support your local athletes. Entry is by donation.”
