Women’s Volleyball – Oct.19-20 MSVU/UKC Tip-Off Exhibition Tournament

It was an exciting weekend at the Tip-off pre season tournament held at MSVU and UKC.  Dal AC finished third out of seven with four wins against MSVU, UKC, USA and Holland and two losses against STU and MTA.  Overall it was a very positive start to our season and the girls should be very proud of their effort.

Fri., Nov. 1 MTA @ DAL AC

Dal AC faced a tough test in their first regular season game versus an experienced Mount A. team. Despite a strong effort and a great crowd, the Mounties defeated the RAMS 3 sets to 0 (25-16, 26-24, 25-15). The second set was very entertaining to watch with Dal AC almost pulling off a comeback with some impressive serving and timely digs.

The RAMS bounced back with a solid performance vs Crandall in what was a one sided 25-14, 25-10, 25-13 win. A complete team effort capped off a busy first weekend with the RAMS set to host UKC (Nov. 8) and UNBSJ (Nov. 9) next weekend.

Fri., Nov. 8
DAL AC came out strong in the first set but unfortunately lost the momentum falling to UKC 3 sets to 0 (25-21, 27-25, 25-16). It appeared the RAMS were going to steal the 2nd set after being down 23-17 and going on a 7 point run, however, UKC battled back and eventually prevailed 27-25. Marit Zwinselman led the RAMS with 10 kills.
7:00 3-0
Sat., Nov. 9

The RAMS bounced back with an outstanding performance vs UNBSJ winning in straight sets (25-23, 25-17, 25-16). Marit Zwinselman once again led the RAMS with her solid offensive play being credited with 14 kills on the match. Jillian Ferguson also had a solid performance for DAL AC earning 8 kills and 11 digs. The RAMS sit 2-2 on the season and will now travel to Universite Sainte Anne for their next game on Nov. 17th.

Congratulations DAL AC Athlete of the Week - Marit Zwinselman

Marit led the RAMS this weekend with 24 total kills against UKC and UNBSJ. Marit has proved that she is an offensive force to be reckoned with forcing teams to make sure a second blocker is always focused on the left side attacker.
