Knights rule women’s volleyball courts

The Niagara women’s volleyball squad is this week’s Ontario College Athletic Association’s team of the week.

The Knights avenged an earlier loss to second-place Nipissing with a 3-2 (25-21, 13-25, 25-20, 21-25, 17-15) upset win on Jan. 28. Niagara followed that performance with a 3-0 (25-18, 25-12, 25-19) win over Canadore on Jan. 29 to move above the .500 mark (7-6) and into fourth place in the OCAA West region.

Outside hitter Jenna Bray (Burlington) has been a great addition to the Knights since the break. She finished the weekend with 21 kills, five aces, and one block for 27 points.

Durham’s basketball team took the men’s team of the week honour on the strength of a five-game win streak.
