An amazing weekend of women’s volleyball earned Hilary Graham the Pacific Western Athletic Association Athlete of the Week honours on Feb. 10.

The third year, 5′,10″ leftside from Courtenay is the Camosun Chargers’ team captain this season.

A graduate of Mark R. Isfeld Secondary, Graham ranks amongst the PacWest league leaders in kills per set, aces per set and total offence. She led the Chargers through a split in PacWest league action against Capilano University last weekend (Feb. 8-9).

On Friday the Chargers fell behind 0-2 to the Blues. Camosun captured the third set 25-21 but lost the fourth 3-1. Graham finished the night with 16 kills, two stuff blocks, two service aces and 12 digs.

On Saturday the Chargers evened the season with the Blues, posting a 3-2 win. Sweeping the first two sets, the Chargers lost a battle in the third 24-26 and quickly found themselves in a fifth and deciding set. Graham finished the night with 20 total kills and nine digs.

For the weekend, Graham had 36 kills, averaging four kills per set and 4.7 points per set.

“It’s that time of year for peak performance and Hilary’s increased volume has coincided with an increase in production,” commented Camosun coach Chris Dahl. “Your best seek the ball under pressure, and our captain is doing a great job leading the charge.”

The versatile Graham, who has also demonstrated her abilities at middle and rightside, is a student in Camosun’s Centre for Sport and Exercise Education Exercise and Wellness program.
