Kodiaks Weekly Update               

October 27, 2014

Women’s Volleyball

In a weekend split with SAIT that saw the Kodiaks erase a 0-2 deficit to come back with a 3-2 sets victory Friday night, 4th year Lethbridge Immanuel Christian grad, Larissa Vonkeman was named player of the game where she recorded 9 kills and 3 blocks. Saturday she was named player of the game again where she recorded another 8 kills and 3 blocks. Isabelle Huel was also a standout, the 3rd year Lethbridge CCH grad libero was solid in the back row passing a 2.76 Friday night and backed that up with a 2.5 passing clip Saturday.

Men’s Volleyball

Men’s volleyball lost two tough matches to SAIT this weekend.  They put themselves in a position to win both, but could not capitalize on their opportunities.  SAIT is a physically and mentally mature team, which proved to be a good test for the young Kodiaks.  The Kodiaks are sure of a different outcome next time if they continue along the same learning curve.

Women’s Soccer

The Women’s soccer team qualified for its first trip back to the ACAC Championships last weekend in 8 years and represented the College well but fell to Concordia 2-0 in the quarterfinals. It was a back and forth match and the Kodiaks left it on the pitch. Victoria Poitras was selected as an ACAC All Conference member for the 2014 season & we are very proud of that accomplishment.

Men’s Soccer

Logan Tataryn was selected to the ACAC Men’s All Conference team for the 2014 season. A very high honor with the team not making the playoffs. He traveled to Lakeland this past weekend to receive his award. Congratulations to Logan for being a leader & presentative of Kodiaks Athletics.

Cross Country Running

Edwin Kaitany won (repeat from 2013) the 8k ACAC provincial race in 26:36 on a hilly tough course also winning the Grand Prix overall season, with Kodiak rookie Boaz Korir earning a silver medal at 27:12 (2nd overall in the GP).  Alex Andres came 11th in 29:01 (seasonal best), rounding up top four score was Tyson Goodstriker in 32:28.  The men's team came second behind the top ranked Concordia so a strong effort by the Kodiak men!

The Kodiak women came third earning a team bronze with Rachel McKenzie 9th in 20;56, Mikaela York in 10th with 21:02, Sarah Makowsky 14th in 21:12 and last scoring runner Rebekah 20th overall in 22:00. All three top Kodiaks are expected to earn top 10 GP season awards. ... Great year for a team hosting ACAC 2015!!!
