HUSKIES WOMEN’S VOLLEYBALL CELEBRATE SENIORS NIGHT IN STYLE WITH WIN OVER FLEMING

Kristan Luong celebrates as the Huskies capped the 2017-18 season with a win over Fleming.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Celebrating a total of eleven graduating seniors on Tuesday night, George Brown volleyball ended the regular season with a split against the visiting Fleming Knights.

The women’s team reeled off its second consecutive win, a well-deserved end to the season after having played so much better during the season’s winter semester. They defeated the Knights 3-2 (25-15, 23-25, 25-22, 15-25, 15-12) to close the year with two consecutive wins.

Graduating veterans Kristan Luong and Kelsey-Jane Lamprecht led the charge, combing for 26 kills on the night. Luong was particularly dominant, finishing with a game-high 18 kills while controlling play through much of the night in a fitting final appearance as a Husky. 

First-year head coach Daphne Choi continues to implement her aggressive style of play, and it steadily paid dividends as the season wore on. There is no doubt that heading into next year the Huskies will be a much more competitive team and vie for a playoff birth. 

The graduating Huskies women recognized prior to open serve included Kelsey-Jane Lamprecht, Kristan Luong, Mig-Li Tsai, Audrey Chau, Nicole Poupart and Yu Ting Liao. 

The men’s team finish the regular season with a record of 13-5 after Tuesday night’s 3-0 loss to Fleming. Key cogs Jacob Ociesa and Raymond Tantengco were unfortunately unavailable due to injury; the Huskies depth at outside hitter took a definite hit with the losses. 

All-Star D’Artaniel Jackman was his usual dominant self in the loss, finishing with a team-high 15 kills on 23 total attempts. Neon Ng finished with seven kills, while Yuseph Jackman had himself a nice night with five kills on nine attempts.

The graduating men recognized were Ahmed Youssef, Matt Krok, Jaccob Ociesa, Nick Baker-Bell and Ray Tantengco. Tantengco could potentially return from injury prior or at some point during the OCAA Championship. 

The men’s team will now play in the crossover game looking to book their ticket to provincials. The do-or-die game is scheduled for Sunday, February 17, 3 p.m. at St. James Campus, follow @GBC_Huskies on twitter for updates throughout.
