Cheyla wins AofW

January 31st, 2011

Cheyla Reader is a fifth year power from Comox, BC. She was a dominant force this past weekend as the Mariners hosted the Blues and Royals in their final league home matches of the season. Heading into the weekend, VIU was sporting a league best undefeated streak. To top it off, in Friday’s match, Reader was honoured as a 5th year athlete playing in her final league home stand of the season. With emotions very high and playing against a struggling Douglas College, Reader managed to tally 13 kills and added 2 digs leading the Mariners to a 3-0 victory. Saturday she played in her final home match of her career and was instrumental in leading the VIU squad to a 3 straight sets win over longtime rival and a consistently
very good Capilano Blues team. She recorded 16 kills, 3 blocks and 1 ace. Defensively she chipped in with 11 digs.

The Mariners now sit 4 points up on UBC Okanagan with a final match vs the Heat in Kelowna on Saturday, February 5th in ashowdown of the two heavily favoured squads to win the Provincial Championships
