The Thunderwolves women’s volleyball team played their first non-conference games during the week of Sept. 9 at the UW-Superior Stinger Classic in preparation of the OUA season.
Lakehead opened the tournament against the UWS junior varsity team, where they went down 2-0 to start the match. It was a tough start for the Wolves and took them a while to get into the groove but after a few adjustments, they were able to come back and take the next three sets and win the match 3-2.
The Wolves also won their second game 3-1 against Marian. A fast pace game, the Wolves first and second years were able to gain experience with the Seniors being leaders from the bench.
After being undefeated on day 1, the Thunderwolves lost to UWS on the second day in three straight sets. Lakehead went on to lose to Hamline also 3-0 but had improvements from the previous game with lots of learning as the new season begins.
Jessica Korchak was named a tournament all-star and proved that this year she will once again be a threat on the court.
“Overall it was a great weekend. We brought a very young line up with us and mixed in a few veteran players. The veteran players really did a great job being leaders on and off the court. For the younger players, this gave them a sense of competition and what to expect in the future. The team had a chance to really come together and learn to play with each other. Overall it was a great learning experience for everyone.” – Head coach Craig Barclay
