Hilary Graham has been named a PACWEST Athlete of the Week for Week 19.

 

 

 

Courtenay’s Hilary Graham is one of six PACWEST Athletes of the Week for Week 19.

This past weekend, Graham and the Camosun Chargers women’s volleyball team hosted the upstart College of the Rockies Avalanche at the Pacific Institute for Sports Excellence at Camosun College in Victoria.

The Chargers have steadily increased their lead at the top of the PACWEST standings while the Avalanche have rapidly ascended into the top four in the standings heading into the action on the weekend.

Graham has donned the #11 jersey for five seasons in the PACWEST. A two-time league all-star, Hilary aided the Chargers cause with an impressive 4.5 points per set over the weekend as the Chargers defeated the Avalanche 3-1 (25-23, 27-29, 25-22, 25-21) on Saturday and again 3-0 (25-23, 25-23, 25-22) on Sunday.

“Hilary’s point production over the weekend against an opponent that makes it extremely difficult to put the ball away was impressive,” said Camosun head coach Chris Dahl. Hilary has been a consistent presence on the PACWEST leader board for years now, but has increased her offensive totals as the Chargers approach the PACWEST Championships, which will be hosted at Camosun Feb. 26-28.

“As an accomplished all-star she’s finding ways to improve her play, even in her fifth year. It’s the small things that are important to our game as we continue to seek success as a unit on the floor,” Dahl said.

“Hilary’s performance of late suggests that we’re getting closer to that special time of the year. The league’s elite players and teams zero in on peak performance. Hilary is starting to do that alongside her teammates. Playoffs are just around the corner and we’re looking forward to welcoming the rest of the PACWEST to Camosun College and Victoria,” said Dahl.
