REGINA – The Rememberance Day weekend was one to forget for the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack men’s volleyball team. Pat Hennelly took his crew into Regina and lost both ends of a Canada West series to the hometown Cougars.
The result on Saturday, Nov. 12 at the University of Regina was 3-0 with the scores being 25-19, 25-20, 25-20. That followed a 3-2 Regina victory on Friday, Nov. 11. The WolfPack fell to 1-and-5 on the season while Regina upped its record to 3-and-3.
Said Hennelly afterward: “They played excellent defence and once again came out confident and aggressive.”
The WolfPack were led by rookie middle Mohamed Rehim (Cairo). He had 12 kills in 16 opportunities with one error hitting .688 with three blocks.
Brad Gunter (1st year, outside hitter, Courtenay) had nine kills in 21 chances with Mike Hawkins (5th year, setter, Lethbridge having 20 assists. The WolfPack had 11 blocks to Regina’s five.
Hennelly knows he has his work cut out for him as he prepares for this weekend (Nov. 18-19) at the Tournament Capital Centre in Kamloops. “We certainly need to regroup for this weekend with an undefeated team coming in the University of Manitoba,” he said.
