The Mohawk men’s and women’s volleyball teams scored straight sets wins for the second day in a row on Saturday (Jan. 25) at the David Braley Athletic and Recreation Centre. Coming off Friday’s victories over Cambrian, they each scored 3-0 wins over another Sudbury team, College Boreal.
The Mohawk women’s 25-13, 25-15, 25-14 decision over Les Viperes, was the fourth consecutive sweep for the Mountaineers, who squared their record at 7-7, while Boreal remained winless in 14 tries.

For Boreal, Erica Pomeroy had nine kills, while Veronique Brisson had six kills and Josie-Ann Langelier put up 19 assists.
The Mohawk men, meantime, scored their fifth consecutive victory, 25-18, 25-17, 25-19, over winless Boreal. The Mountaineers, who improved to 10-4, showed their depth as they went almost exclusively with their bench for this one. Jason Mueller had seven kills and three stuff blocks. John Zimmerman had seven kills, one ace and one block. Nhat Nguyen contributed eight kills and Ben Tonin had 20 assists.
Boreal was led by Eric Cayen’s six kills, Marc Leclair had four kills and one block and Alin Roy produced 11 assists.
Friday’s match with Cambrian was dedicated to Charlotte Huitema, a member of the Mohawk women’s team. She was in a car accident earlier in the week and is recovering in St. Michael’s hospital in Toronto.
Both Mountaineer teams had Charlotte’s No. 4 printed on their legs and the women wore purple ribbons, her favourite colour, in their hair. At the conclusion of the match, Cambrian presented Mohawk a card for Charlotte and gave them cupcakes as well as white, orange and red handmade friendship bracelets.
