Kodiaks Weekly Update
October 27, 2014
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 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.
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.
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!!!
