Women’s Volleyball (1-1) Kailan Robinson (Hamiota, Man.)

Coach Green: “In 2 games this season Kailan Has racked up 16 Kills on 34 attempts with only 2 errors, leading the Wolves to a 1-1 start. That equates to a .412 efficiency, and leads the team thus far with 18.5 points on the season, adding a service ace and a block solo to her stats. Kailan is 2nd on the team in digs and her start shows she has learned a lot from her first full season as a starter.

In her first year with the Thunderwolves ski team, we are looking for great things from her as the team hopes to continue its run of OUA Championships. Alysson has brought a positive attitude and a great work ethic to the team this year and we are looking forward to having her represent the Thunderwolves on the snow!”

Coach Lennie: “As a 5th year member of the men’s team, Lucas is being looked to this year not only for results on the trails but also team leadership.

Coming into his final season with the team, we look forward to watching Lucas deliver in the same manner he has during his previous years with Lakehead Nordic.”

Cross Country Running

Coach Sigsworth: “Marla had a very good first season at Lakehead. At the UW – Eau Claire BluGold she placed 24th in a field of more than 300 runners.  Marla had a bit of the tough race at the Queen’s Open before bouncing back at the OUA Champs last weekend.  There she had her best race of the season finishing 29th.”

This past weekend at the OUA Championships, Kevin ran a very strong race breaking away from the field with 2 other athletes on the final lap before getting outkicked to end up third.  His finish earned him first team OUA All-star honours.”
