The Durham Lords women’s volleyball team has started the 2015-2016 season on a winning streak.
They finished second in last year’s OCAA tournament, and continued their journey to redemption Saturday, October 7, against the Algonquin Thunder.
The Lords won the match three sets to one, by scores of 29-27, 21-25, 26-24 and 25-23.
Jessica Broad is a graduate student in Event Management and in her fifth year of eligibility with the Lords. She led the team with three blocks against Algonquin and added seven kills.
This year’s team is a departure from the group that won the silver medal in the OCAA tournament. It features five rookies and three sophomores on the 13-player roster.
The team is looking to carry the momentum from last year’s silver medal and and finish atop the conference this year, earning an automatic bye into the OCAA tournament, Broad says.
The Lords travel to North Bay for their next game against Canadore on the 14th.
