RDC Queens volleyball earn 16th straight win

Emma Holmes was on fire for the RDC Queens Saturday.

The second-year outside hitter from Red Deer had a monster match as the Queens rolled to their 16th straight win in Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference women’s volleyball play.

Holmes recorded a match-high 19 kills in the four-set win (25-16, 20-25, 25-15, 25-13) over the SAIT Trojans. It was the fifth time this season that Holmes has had 15 or more kills in a match. She’s now third in the ACAC with 3.24 kills-per-set and fifth overall with 214 kills. She was player of the game for her efforts.

The Queens attack efficiency was 42 per cent and they had seven aces in the victory. Second-year outside hitter Tess Pearman was also a big piece of the offence, she recorded 16 kills for the third time this season.

Third-year setter Kelly Heinemann had a strong night with 46 assists.

Next up, the Queens host the Olds College Broncos on Feb. 7.
