Mohawk Women Reach Ten Volleyball Wins

The Mohawk women upped their OCAA volleyball record to 10-4 with a sweep of arch rival Redeemer at the DBARC Friday (Jan. 25),

Set scores were 25-17, 25-19, 26-24 over the Royals, 5-9.

The match featured a wild third set where Redeemer had a 10-1 lead but couldn't stop the Mountaineers from coming all the way back.

Emily MacEachern led Mohawk with 10 kills and 10 digs. Kaelyn Emslie had seven points and 12 digs and Amanda Kuiper collected seven kills two aces and 18 assists.

Jasmyn Stoffers had eight points and four aces for the Royals. Maria VanVark produced 11 assists.Rebekah Nash had 13 digs.

Mohawk head coach Matthew Schnarr admits 10 wins is pretty impressive considering some of the injuries the teams had to deal with and some of the lineups they've been trying to figure out.

"We're giving some first-year athletes a chance to perform and they're actually (playing) at a pretty high level, so I'm very content with the way we're performing. But we have to keep our 'eyes on the prize' as it's still a battle."

Mohawk has four regular season games left, but they'll be playoff style games in terms of ranking. Schnarr said the team's one or two wins away from hosting a crossover game and the Mountaineers play pretty well in their own gym.
