THE STORYLINE

The No. 2 Humber women's volleyball team earned the first-seed in the OCAA Championships after finishing with a perfect 18-0 regular season record for the sixth consecutive year and will be making its 24th straight postseason appearance.  In its quarter-final matchup, the Hawks will play the Loyalist Lancers, who finished the season 11-7 and fourth overall in the east division.
