The UNB Saint John men’s volleyball team was victorious in the battle for second place after winning three sets to one on Saturday against the Holland College Hurricanes.
After losing the first set 25-19, the Seawolves overcame their passing woes to win three straight sets.
Seawolves member, Peter Banks, who just received Male Athlete of the Week honours at UNB Saint John, led the team with 10 kills against the Hurricanes. Banks was a difference maker for the Seawolves in the second and third sets as they narrowly beat the third place Hurricanes 25-22 and 25-19, respectively.
Left side hitter, Greg Gaudet had a team-high six digs to help the Seawolves thwart any comeback by the Hurricanes in the fourth set and deservedly took the set 25-14.
Individual serving efforts and consistent team blocking on the defense were the visible strengths displayed by the men’s volleyball team.
Rewarded with a week-off, the Seawolves next take to the court at the Athletics Centre on Saturday, Jan. 25 at 8:00 p.m., against the Université Sainte-Anne Dragons. The Seawolves encourage all fans to join them in wearing pink this game day, as they are raising money for Breast Cancer research.
