November 24th, 2010

This past weekend the Vancouver Island University Mariner’s went onto dominated the UBCO Heat 25-17, 25-15, 25-20 after a 27-25 game one loss. The Heat, who were undefeated and ranked number 1 in the country are 2 time defending CCAA National Champions. The Mariner’s were led by their setter Dani Smith. Dani was by far the best player on the court leading her team to a 4 set win. Dani spread the offence out very well keeping the Heat defence guessing every play. Dani individually recorded 3 blocks, 3 aces and had 50 assists. The Mariner offence had 4 players with 11 kills or higher. Dani also chipped in defensively with 3 blocks and 10 digs. Dani and the rest of the Mariners now go into their final weekend riding an impressive undefeated streak.
