ATHLETES OF THE WEEK | MARACLE & HAYES

After a complete weekend sweep of the Algonquin Thunder & La Cite Coyotes, two standout players from the volleyball squads have been named Athletes of the Week.

Third year athlete Raven Maracle was at the top of her game in both matches over the weekend. The 5’5 libero dominated the serve receive and frustrated her opponents with stellar defense.  Whether covering her teammates’ attacks, picking up tips or digging a hard driven ball, Maracle’s consistent passing played a big role in her team’s continued success.

From the men’s team, fellow third year player Dylan Hayes recorded the two best games of his career. In the first game of the weekend, the Hayes turned in a 10 point performance that included 7 kills, 2 aces and a block, pushing his team to a 3-2 win over the Algonquin Thunder.

The following day, the 6’4 middle beat his own record with an career high 5 blocks, 1 ace and 11 kills for a total of 17 points. Out working his opponent, Hayes dominated the Coyotes in the middle of the court and slowed down their offensive attempts with strong, intelligent blocking. Offensively, Hayes was nearly unstoppable. Having scored 11 kills on 19 attempts with only 2 errors Hayes lead his team in scoring for the match.

Both Lancer teams get back in action on Saturday February 10th when they take on the Durham Lords at home.
