Volleyball Mountaineers reach quarter finals

The Mohawk men’s volleyball team went 2-1 on the opening day of the 10th Annual Overkill Fanshawe College Kickoff Tournament in London on Saturday (Sep. 29) to reach the quarter finals.

The Mountaineers lost their opening match 2-0 to Seneca, 17-25, 24-26.

However, Mohawk, with 10 first-year players in the event, bounced back with a pair of straight sets decisions, 25-22, 25-20, over Georgian and 25-12, 25-16, over Cambrian.

Mountaineers’ head coach Matt Schnarr said with so many newcomers, the learning curve is huge. The team keyed on ‘serve and pass’ and got better in that department as the day progressed.

The Mohawk men will meet Cambrian in a quarter final Sunday morning.
