Women’s Volleyball

After a 10-9 season and first round exit in the OUA playoffs, the women’s volleyball team was celebrated for their strong effort. Caroline Livingston and Isabelle Korchinski were named OUA East-All Stars. 

On the year, Livingston was one of the top performers in the OUA, finishing second in both kills (271) and kills per set (3.82). Korchinski stepped into a bigger role during her third year on the team, providing a defensive presence, with 205 digs on the year.

Rookie Danielle Corrigan made the OUA All-Rookie team, finishing fifth in the OUA with 31 service aces.

Men’s Volleyball

With a young team, the men’s volleyball impressed in the OUA this year. Veterans Markus Trence and Jamie Wright were named OUA East All-Stars, with rookies Joel Rudd, Malcolm Prentice and Lukas Kaufman being named OUA East All-Rookies.

With graduating a large portion of their starters last year, Trence took a key role on this Gaels team. In just 16 games, Trence finished second in the OUA in kills (261), and fourth in kills per set with 4.08. 

After four years, Jamie Wright went from walk-on to OUA East All Star. Wright was integral to Queen’s high power offence, finishing with 9.75 assists per set.

The future is bright for the Gaels, with Rudd, Prentice and Kaufman receiving honours.

Men’s Hockey 

Making the OUA finals, individuals on the men’s hockey team were rewarded with provincial accolades. 

Forward Slater Doggett and defenceman Spencer Abraham were named OUA All-Stars this past week. 

In 22 games this year, Abraham scored three goals and added 13 assists. In Dogget’s second year, he was able to build off his 2015-16 year where he scored 24 points. This year, Doggett scored 33 points in 22 games. Both Doggett and Abraham were a part of the U Sports Canadian team that went to the FISU games and won bronze.

Men’s Basketball

After a disappointing year — losing 10 of their last 11 games — the men’s basketball team has a lot to improve.

The team’s lone All-Star is Sukhpreet Singh. As he has done for the last five years, Singh was the Gaels leader in points, averaging 17.7 per game. This year, Singh broke Queen’s all-time scoring record, previously set by Mitch Leger at 1,345 career points. 

Women’s Basketball

With a 19-1 record, the women’s basketball team was bound to reel in the accolades. 

This year, Robyn Pearson, Emily Hazlett and Andrea Priamo were named OUA All-Stars. Fifth-years Pearson and Hazlett were named to the first team, with Priamo finishing on the second team.

Rookie Bridget Mulholland was an important player off the bench in her first year at Queen’s, and was named an OUA All-Rookie for her efforts.

In their best regular season in the team’s history, head coach Dave Wilson was named OUA Coach of the Year. On Wednesday night, he was named U Sports Coach of the year as well.
