WOMEN'S VOLLEYBALL FALL TO TOUGH THUNDER TEAM

The Georgian Grizzlies women's volleyball team hosted the Algonquin Thunder on Friday night at the Georgian Athletic Centre in Barrie.

Georgian were in tough against a tough Thunder team.

The Grizzlies battled hard in their three sets but couldn't get over the hump as they fell 3-0 to the Thunder by set scores of 25-20, 25-19 and 25-19.

Kelsey Watson (Barrie) returned to the Grizzlies lineup and had a team high 16 points from 11 kills, three aces and two blocks.

Amber Maw (Huntsville) had a solid game with seven kills and an ace while Sophia Clement (Toronto) had 18 assists.

Georgian is stuck in a five game losing streak as their record fell to 5-10 on the season and they sit in a tie for seventh place in the OCAA east division standings.

The Grizzlies will play their final regular season home game of the year on Saturday afternoon when they host the La Cite Coyotes.

The women's game gets underway at 1 p.m. followed by the men's game at 3 p.m. Prior to each game a special ceremony will take place recognizing the graduating student-athletes.

Tickets to the double-header are available at the doors for $5 each.
