McRobert led Mac to volleyball wins

Middle blocker Shannon McRobert (Whitby) from the women’s volleyball team is the Pita Pit McMaster Marauder Female Athlete of the Week.

The fifth-year team captain led the Marauders to two important wins over the weekend (Nov.16-18), beating Guelph, 3-1, on Friday and Waterloo, 3-1, on Sunday.

McRobert registered 11 points, including seven kills, in the win over Guelph. She was named player of the match against Waterloo as she again registered double-figures in points with 11.5 and keyed several long service runs that kept Waterloo off-balance during the match.

The two wins allowed the Marauders to move up three spots in Ontario University Athletics standings.

Quarterback Kyle Quinlan (South Woodslee, ON) was named McMaster’s Pita Pit Male Athlete of the Week.
