This was the second year in a row that the Gees have taken home the John Drake trophy, and the first year that they took home all three major varsity awards.
The Gees took the first step towards a national title on Saturday, Feb. 25 when they faced off against the Laurentian Voyageurs in the OUA quarterfinal.
Alanna Fogerty adds to her list of awards that includes OUA and Canadian University Championship medals.
As a result of this loss, the Gees’ record is now 14–8–4 and they sit in sixth place in the Ontario University Athletics East Division.
While it’s still a tight race, the team has some ground to make up in their remaining four games before playoffs start.
This year, Tome is demonstrating her ability to be a versatile player, contributing both offensively and defensively. A left-handed hitter, Tome is averaging a career-high 1.22 kills per set this season, a very good mark considering she spends most of the time setting up her teammates.
The Gees only have four games remaining before the playoffs, and while they are holding on to second place in the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec (RSEQ), they’re not guaranteed anything yet.
Both teams have one more weekend before their much-anticipated Capital Hoops matchup, and a chance to avenge their losses to Carleton.
