Saturday, February 4th saw the Niagara College women's volleyball program improve to 13-3 as the team swept the Mohawk Mountaineers 3-0 on the road in OCAA West Division action. The set scores in the contest were 25-23, 25-28, 25-13.
After the match, Niagara Knights women's volleyball head coach Nathan Janzen commented "we played maybe our best match of the season in this convincing win." The Niagara side controlled the match from start to finish, using their size and athleticism to its fullest advantage en route to the straight set victory.
For the second consecutive match fifth-year middle blocker Linnea Davis was the Knights strongest all-around player. The towering six-foot-one native of Brampton, finished the game with 11 points on seven kills, two, aces, and two blocks. More impressive however was Davis' efficiency, as she committed just one error in and hit at .400 in the match on 7 of 12 attacks.
Second year standout Jordan Koslowski (Hamilton) continued her OCAA West division scoring leading ways, as she finished with a match high 13 points on 8 kills, four aces, and a block. Koslowski currently leads the OCAA West Division scoring with an average of 4.3 points-per-set.
With the win the Knights guarantee that they will host a home playoff match. Just who the opponent is depends on the remaining two games of the season.
Up next the team will host the Sheridan Bruins (7-9) on Thursday, February 9th at 6:00pm. The match will serve as Niagara College's "Make Some Noise for Mental Health" event, and will include local Niagara Region mental health partners conducting a service fair, and prize giveaways throughout the evening.
