‘Wolves Face Rams in Final Home Game

| Volleyball (W)

The Lakehead women’s volleyball team will take on the Ryerson Rams (14-4) this weekend in the Thunderdome for their last game of the season.

“Ryerson is a playoff bound team who is also hosting Nationals this year. Coach Dustin Reid has been building towards this seasons end and has done a fabulous job. His group grows so much every year, every month, every day.” – Coach Green

Ryerson is second in the OUA East with a 6-2 away record.

“We have to work to slow down their attack with tough serving. Our block will be challenged by their offence, especially #2 Theanna Vernon. She is a special attacker and blocker, and she makes teams work hard to attack away from the middle. Setter Kate Mcllmoyle has established her offence as a premier attack. A Forest City Club athlete who shared the setting with Thunderwolf Jen Hammerton, both have established themselves as legitimate setters in the OUA and U Sports League.” – Coach Green

Theanna Vernon hit 15 kills and only one error on 26 total attacks this past Friday in the Rams 3-1 victory over the Guelph Gryphons. Vernon has the second highest hitting percentage in the league and is also in the top five for most blocks per set. Kate Mcllmoyle is averaging 8.8 assists per game, 2nd highest in the OUA.

“We will be led by Kailan Robinson at left side and the likes of Ciara Zarn at Libero, who will work to establish their styles of play. We have to rely on their Serve/Block/Defence to control the pace. Limiting the lefts side attack of Ryerson will go along way to helping us set a tone for the match. Saying that is a lot easier than doing but it is a great challenge to end the season and we look forward to it.” – Coach Green

The Thunderwolves are rested up after a bye weekend and will be ready to come out hard on Saturday night in their last home game of the 2016/2017 season. The Thunderwolves will also be honouring their 4th year athletes on Saturday for their commitment and dedication to the university and athletics program. Kailan Robinson (Kinesiology), Sara Potter (Kinesiology), Olivia Bowman (Kinesiology), Rachel Moore (Nursing) and Christie Lowe (Kinesiology) will all be recognized.

Webcast will be available via OUA TV
