ETOBICOKE, ON: The league-leading Humber Hawks women's volleyball team (7-0, 1st West) will conclude the first half of the season on Sunday afternoon as they welcome the Boreal Vipers.
LAST TIME OUT
The Hawks delivered their best performance of the season last Wednesday at home in a 3-0 (25-12, 25-15, 25-23) sweep of the fourth place Niagara Knights. Tough serving and consistent passing were the keys to victory, as service kept the Knights at bay, while the pass led to kill percentage of .343 for the home team. Breanna once again led the Hawks on the night, contributing 9 kills towards her game-leading point total of 12.
