For the Dalhousie Rams, leading contributors included number 5, Marit Zwinselman and number 14, Samantha Nichols. The UKC Blue Devils took all three sets with final scores for each set 29-27, 25-20, and 25-23. 

MSVU vs Dal AC – Feb 23

The Dal AC Rams defeated the MSVU Mystics three sets to one on a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Bible Hill, Nova Scotia. Dal AC was led by their strong veteran presence, with seniors Maggie MacLeod, Samantha Nichols and Xenna Mazal leading the charge in their final home games as members of the Rams women's volleyball team. Notable efforts from Onye Njoku and Marcy MacNeil spurred a strong resistance from the Mystics however it was not enough on the afternoon.

Next up for both teams is a trip to Sackville, New Brunswick for the ACAA Championships hosted by Mount Allison University on February 28th and 29th. Best of luck to both teams as they push towards a league championship.
