MEN’S VOLLEYBALL REEL OFF FOURTH CONSECUTIVE VICTORY WITH WIN OVER ALGONQUIN ON HERITAGE DAY

00005855847

George Brown men’s volleyball celebrated Heritage Day in style on Saturday night, earning their fourth straight win with a 3-1 (20-25, 25-15, 25-13, 25-16) victory over Algonquin.

With the victory, George Brown moves into sole possession of second place in the east. The Huskies have dropped just three sets in their past four games, led by OCAA All-Star D’Artaniel Jackman, who again paced the Huskies on Saturday. The reigning OCAA and CCAA Athlete of the week finished with a team-best twelve kills along with a pair of service aces, and was solid at the net all game.

 

Jacob Ociesa had his best performance of the young season, finishing with nine kills and two aces. Setter Pradeep Bhogal finished with over thirty assists for the fourth time in five games.

 

George Brown has now won thirteen sets on the season and lost just six.

 

The women’s team had their best performance of the year, playing an undefeated Thunder team tough all afternoon in a 3-1 (14-25, 13-25, 25-23, 14-25) loss.

 

After playing well but dropping the opening two sets due to a couple of tough runs of unforced errors, the Huskies came out on top in the third thanks to gritty performances from Julia Via and Natasha Zimonjic. The pair had several crucial plays at the net, and wound up leading the Huskies with a combined eight kills.

 

Setter Kristan Luong had another strong outing, finishing with 13 assists and four digs, including a couple of great saves. She continues to impress and become more of a leader for the program.

 

In spite of the defeat, it was a promising afternoon after a tough start to the season. Going head-to-head with one of the eastern division's elite teams should be a confidence builder going forward.

 

The Huskies get little rest, as they will play host to La Cite tomorrow afternoon. Women’s game gets underway at 12 p.m., men’s at 2 p.m., follow @GBC_Huskies on twitter for updates throughout.
