Wolves show improvement

Cody McCowell

The Lancers looked good from the service line as they served hard for eleven service aces, compared to Lakehead’s six free points from the line.

Leading the way for the wolf pack was Brittany MacLeod, who earned an impressive nine points on the attack out of an attempted 12. MacLeod also tested the Lancers with her impressive serving, which helped her collect two service ace points for a total 11 points that night. MacLeod also had zero hitting errors.

Lancers captain Hannah Robson led her team with vocal enthusiasm and personal consistency. She had agitated the Thunderwolves in set one, consistently serving until the Lancers collected the win.

Other notable contributions to the Lancers’ victory were Kaila Seguin, who collected a team high of nine points on the attack. Setter Jessica Shepley also donated to the three-game trampling of the ‘Wolves with a team high twenty assists.

Saturday’s game against Western showed improvements in Lakehead’s performance. The match was back and forth all night, with MacLeod’s consistent play making a difference for the ‘Wolves. She finished the night with 11 kills of an attempted thirty and only four errors.

Lakehead setter Sara Hudson, who assisted on thirty-five kills and dug eleven times, had her best performance of the season.

The Mustangs saw contributions from Danielle Marshall, who was a key hitting factor as well as a blocking machine.

The Thunderdome exploded when the ‘Wolves won their first set on their home court this season, but the energy of the building was short of motivating the girls to a win.
