On February 1st the St. Thomas University women's volleyball team walked away with a win over the Crandall University Chargers, 3-0. The Tommies managed to take home a win the previous night against the University of New Brunswick Saint John Seawolves. 


"We didn't plan very well last night, we won ugly," said Head Coach Don Mckay. 


The Tommies swept the Chargers in three straight sets. Tommies took an early lead over the Chargers in the first set, Meghan Mills and Hannah Miller with several kills. 


The Tommies held their lead throughout the set, ending in a score of 25 -15.


Early in the second set the Chargers trailed closely behind the Tommies, not long after the Tommies picked up their lead with some big digs and kills, pushing the score to 21- 13. 


The Second Set ended at 25 -14 in favour of the Tommies. 


In the third and final set, the Tommies took control and pushed their lead to 13-6. The Chargers tried to push back, but to no avail. 


The Tommies keep their lead throughout the third set, with kills from Jenna DeGooyer, Mills and Miller. The third set ended in a score of 25 - 11. 


"Today was much better. We were much more in control, we handled the balls they gave us, and we served well," said McKay. 


The Tommies current record sits at 9-3. For their next game the Tommies will be heading to Crandall, where they'll face off against the Chargers on February 8th.
