HAWKS BACK ON HOME COURT AFTER EXTENDED ABSENCE

ETOBICOKE, ON: The Humber Hawks women's volleyball team (4-0, 1st West) return home for the first time since the season opener on October 26, as they will entertain the Conestoga Condors (1-4, 9th West) on Wednesday.

THE MATCH-UP
Humber "HAWKS" vs Conestoga "CONDORS"
Wednesday, November 15/17
6:00 pm
Humber Athletic Centre – Etobicoke

LAST TIME OUT VS CONESTOGA
Humber had little trouble with Conestoga on the Condors home court last February, sweeping all three sets by scores of 25-14, 25-16 and 25-15. Brynne Spence-Coleman led the way for the Hawks with 12 offensive points, which included 9 kills. Devan O'Connor was the only other Hawk in double figures, with 10 points. Tori Kozak of the Condors recorded 10 points, all via the kill.

SCOUTING CONESTOGA

  • Humber is a perfect 14-0 against Conestoga in league play. The Condors have only been able to win 4 of the 46 sets played
  • Their only victory of the season came against the winless Boreal Vipers
  • The team is a mix of new (6) and returning (7) players. Only Rayna Cowie has more than a year of post-secondary experience on the squad
  • Outside hitter Tori Kozak is the player of note for Conestoga, as she was the team's leading scorer with a solid mark of 3.1 points per set last season. The next three top scorers also return
  • Freshman Karis Mapp leads the team in scoring this year, checking in with a mark of 3.4 pps (49 kills, 5 services aces, 1 block)

HAWK NOTES

  • The Hawks survived the closest call in recent memory on Friday night in Hamilton, as they battled back from 2-0 down to win the next three sets to win the match over a determined club from Mohawk
  • Three Humber players are scoring at a rate over the 3.0 pps level, led by Breanna Golding and her mark of 4.07 points per set. Devan O'Connor (3.23 pps) and Jasmine Lougheed (3.0 pps) sit close by
  • Libero Kyla Wilkins continues her fine play, and if it continues should be considered for post-season recognition

HISTORY WATCH

  • Head Coach Chris Wilkins continues to build on his record as the all-time winningest coach in Hawk history. With the win Friday, he now sits at 321 career victories.
  • The Hawks continue its run, and it now sits at 134 consecutive OCAA league and playoff wins.
  • Breanna Golding, who is scoring at a rate of over 4.0 pps, is still a ways back of breaking into the top five of all-time single-season scoring marks. Kelly Nyhof holds the fifth spot with her mark of 4.9 pps from the 2013/14 season
