Milo Warren Named PACWEST Athlete of the week !!

5th Year Milo Warren put together 2 HUGE matches over the weekend in North Vancouver. He was almost
unstoppable in both matches vs Capilano, combining for 54 total points over the weekend. During Friday
night's match Warren put together an offensive display finishing with 20 kills in the 3-0 victory against the
Blues. His strong leadership was instrumental in the Mariners ability to close out the each of the close sets.
Warren has been eager to put together a complete match from start to finish and he did just that on Friday
night.
On Saturday the Mariners came out with a very strong start and Warren picked up right where he left off on
Friday. After the incredible offensive impact he had on Friday night, Warren was able to put even better
numbers up in the 3-1 Mariners victory. His offense continued to explode with 29 more kills. When the
Mariners let the 3rd set slide after being up 23-20, Warren came into the 4th set with even more incentive
to finish the match. He made sure the Mariners came out on top with 7 more kills.
His final weekend stats demonstrate his ability to take over a match. Warren has become a huge factor in the
Mariners success this season. He finished the weekend with 49 kills, 5 blocks, 8 digs and 1 service ace. After
putting together another strong 2 win weekend, the Mariner's season record has climbed to 17-3 a top the
PACWEST standings.
