Women’s volleyball sweeps weekend, men’s volleyball second at Dino Cup

Women’s basketball sweeps weekend

The women’s basketball team won three straight games at the ARC this weekend, beating the Dalhousie Tigers 80-70 on Friday, the Guelph Gryphons 72-63 on Saturday and the University of Quebec at Montreal Citadins 72-58 on Sunday.

The tournament was a round-robin format so there was no championship game. Guards Liz Boag and Brittany Moore were both named to the tournament all-star team. Moore was the Gaels’ leading scorer on the weekend, putting up 27 points against the Tigers and 17 against the Citadins on Sunday. She rested during Saturday’s game.

Men’s volleyball second at Dino Cup

The men’s volleyball team returned from Calgary with silver medals on Sunday. After losing 3-2 to the Alberta Golden Bears — winners of last weekend’s Coast-to-Coast Classic at Queen’s — the Gaels beat the Calgary Dinos 3-2 and the Regina Cougars 3-1 to advance to the final. The Gaels lost 3-0 in a championship rematch against the Dinos.

Middle Michael Amoroso and setter Jackson Dakin both made the all-star list. Outside hitters Joren Zeeman and Bryan Fautley and setter Dan Rosenbaum sat out the weekend with injuries.
