‘Wolves Outdone by Rams

Hugh Mullally | Volleyball (W)

Playing against another top ranked opponent in as many days, the women’s volleyball team came up short against the Ryerson Rams, losing in straight sets Saturday (15-25, 21-25, 18-25).

Leah Mousseau 15-16

Leah Mousseau (photo left) was Lakehead’s leader once again, as she continues to impress in her rookie season. Mousseau make 12 kills on 27 swings with 5 errors and 4 digs.

“Leah showed she is the player we expected and yet she’s got more to give and will continue to improve. Sara potter showed again she is so valuable to this team. She is always ready,” said coach Chris Green in praise of his team’s leaders.

Sara Potter was the other bright spot for Lakehead on Saturday, as she had 11 kills on 22 attempts from the left side. Setter Vanessa Masters made a good effort on the day, with 23 assists and 10 digs.

For the Rams, Veronica Livingston had a game-high 16 points (12 kills, 3 aces, 1 block). Ryerson showed superiority at the net, making 7 blocks to Lakehead’s 2.

Coach Green thinks part of his team’s solution is in their mental approach to the game:

“When you play against very good teams like Ryerson, you need to get ready to succeed instead or worrying overly about preparation. We’ve still got a ways to come in learning what getting mentally ready to play means.”

“When we followed the game plan, things went well against Ryerson, but we need more consistency. Next we get ready for Toronto, who will spare no time in attacking us. We need a full team effort tomorrow.”

Lakehead plays the U of Toronto Varsity Blues tomorrow at 3pm.
