Recap 2017-18
The Rams struggled on the volleyball court.

The young squad finished with a 3-18 record to wind up seventh in the eight-team conference.

However, Thea McLachlin continued to show she is one of the ACAA’s top players. The 22-year-old left side led the league averaging 3.83 kills per set and was fifth with 176 kills. She was also third in the conference with a 0.76 service ace average and was named to the conference all-star squad.

Coach Guy Desgagne will have more experience to work with next season as nine of his 10 players, with McLachlin the lone exception, eligible to return.
