The Lethbridge College Kodiaks men’s and women’s volleyball teams serve up the second semester of the season in Red Deer this weekend as the 10-2 men and 2-10 women clash with the Kings and Queens.
The 10-2 Kodiak men start the second half tied with the 10-4 SAIT Trojans for first in the South Division and will deal with the 9-3 Kings, who sit in third.
The Kodiaks – who will host the ACAC provincial championship at the end of February – are ranked eighth in the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association standings and are led by ACAC all-time kills leader Carter Hansen. The fifth-year veteran is third in the conference in kills per set, averaging 3.82, while Malcolm Fisher is in fifth in the conference in digs per set, averaging 2.65.
The Kodiaks split two matches with the 9-3 Kings in November, winning 3-0 before losing 3-1.
On the women’s side, the Kodiaks will look to snap an eight-game losing streak against a tough 10-2 Queens squad.
Third-year Kodiak and Taber product Mack Lewicki is 13th in the conference in digs per set, averaging 3.21 and also sitts among the top-20 in the ACAC in kills per set.
All Kodiaks games can be viewed on ACAC-TV and results will be available on the ACAC website (www.acac.ab.ca).
