After getting handed their first loss of the season last weekend, the Lethbridge College Kodiaks men’s basketball team is working on a new winning streak.
The Kodiaks downed the Calgary St. Mary’s Lightning 95-77 in Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference play Thursday in Calgary.
With the win the Kodiaks move to 16-1 and win their second game in a row.
Leading the way for the Kodiaks was Brock Dewsbery with 22 points and six assists, while Orin Porter and Chase Bohne hit for 17 and 16 points, respectively and Timothy McMahon had 15.
Jaxon Davison had the double-double with 12 points and 12 rebounds.
On the women’s side, the Kodiaks fell to 9-8 with an 89-63 loss to the Lightning.
That puts Lethbridge in a tie for third in the ACAC South Division with the 9-7 Medicine Hat Rattlers, who have a game in hand on the Kodiaks.
The Lightning are in second place in the South at 12-5, two points back of the 13-1 Olds Broncos.
For the Kodiaks Thursday night, Millay Johnson recorded the double-double witt 11 points and 10 rebounds, while Natalie Hoyt topped the team with 15 points.
Kirsten Barwegen had 10 points and eight rebounds for Lethbridge.
The Kodiaks return to action next Friday when they welcome the Broncos to the Val Matteotti Gymnasium.
The Kodiaks volleyball teams are home at the Val Matteotti Gymnasium tonight when the Medicine Hat Rattlers visit. The women’s game is at 6 p.m. with the men’s game to follow at 8 p.m.
The Kodiaks men’s volleyball team is ranked second in the national CCAA rankings and have an opportunity to take sole possession of first place in the ACAC south division as they play a home-and-home series against Medicine Hat College. The Kodiaks are two points behind SAIT for first in the division, but with the Trojans off this weekend, Lethbridge has a chance to leapfrog them.
The 4-14 Kodiaks women face the 8-10 Rattlers. The Kodiaks have lost two in row, but the Rattlers have dropped their last four. Medicine Hat won a pair of November meetings against the Kodiaks by scores of 3-0 and 3-1.
