Women’s volleyball team loses Sunday match of long-distance weekend

| News, Volleyball (W)

Lakehead’s women’s volleyball team lost their third game in as many days on Sunday, dropping three straight sets to the Windsor Lancers in Windsor. The loss drops Lakehead to 1-9 after a grueling, long-distance beginning to the 2019 portion of their season. Windsor is now 6-7.

“Today was a much better day for us,” Thunderwolves head coach Craig Barclay said. “We didn’t win but we were able to play much more consistent volleyball.”

The Thunderwolves got off to a slow start with the Lancers scoring 11-straight points after Lakehead opened the day with points off a Windsor error and a Thunderwolves ace. The opening set the tone for the day as Lakehead would keep pace with the Lancers before giving up big runs.

Lakehead was again led by veteran Rheanna Geisel with 12 points and 9 digs. Thunder Bay native Jessica Korchak added 5.5 points of her own with only 1 hitting error on 15 attempts. First year player Rebekah Hara picked up 7 points with 6 digs, committing only 3 hitting errors on 19 attempts. Veteran libero Ciara Zarn dug up 17 Windsor attacks.

“It was great to see our veterans step up,” Barclay said, “and again we saw a lot of young players go in and make an impact.”

The Thunderwolves return home to the Thunderdome next weekend to face the McMaster Marauders on Saturday, January 26th, and Sunday, January 27th. Saturday will be the annual Think Pink! event for the Lakehead squad, a campaign in which money is raised for the Canadian Cancer Society and other related local and provincial charities.
