sean Jan 27, 2018 - 3:37pm

Last week, Tagwi Intermediate School hosted the finals of the UC Cup volleyball tournament, for boys and girls from schools across the UCDSB. The girls tournament ran on Wednesday, followed by the boys competition Thursday, where the homecourt Warriors garnered bronze.

The next edition of The Glengarry News, to be published Jan. 31, will include photos and a story from the event, with full results.

The UC Cup (or Upper Canada Cup) is a sports event organized for schools in the Upper Canada District School Board. There are regional qualifier tournaments across the span of the board, followed by a final tournament in each of a range of sports. Glengarry District and Tagwi field teams for the UC Cup events, while Char-Lan does not, opting instead to focus on the non-competitive Family of Schools sports events.
