RDC Queens volleyball win sixth straight match to end ACAC regular season

Kings score second straight win over top-ranked Kodiaks

The RDC Queens finished the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference regular season on a high.

They swept the Lethbridge College Kodiaks with relative ease in three sets Saturday (25-14, 25-13, 25-15) on the road.

It was the sixth straight match win for the Queens and 15th in the last 18 matches. That streak pushed them into second in the ACAC South.

Third-year libero Kaylee Domoney was player-of-the-game for RDC with 15 digs. Erin Neufeldt led the Queens with 11 kills, while third-year outside hitter Katrina Dawe chipped in eight. Rookies Ali Greenshields and Emma Holmes had seven each.

On the Men’s side, the Kings won a crazy four-set match (25-23, 22-25, 26-24, 34-32) over the south division leading Kodiaks.

It was the second time in as many days that the Kings knocked off the second-ranked team in Canadian men’s collegiate volleyball.

Regan Fathers lead all hitters with 37 kills on the night and converted on nearly half of his attack attempts. He also chipped in 18 digs. Kings setter Tom Wass had a stellar game as well with 63 assists.

Carter Hansen also had a big night for the Kodiaks with 26 kills.
