2/28 - The Lady Freemen’s Victoria Ryshytylo was named the MCAC’s week 16 female athlete of the week following a strong performance against the CMU Blazers. The following is the MCAC press release on Ryshytylo’s honor:
It is quite possibly the biggest upset so far this MCAC women’s volleyball season. Just 48 hours earlier the Canadian Mennonite University Blazers took a convincing three-straight sets at home over third-placed Providence College, and continued their perfect 11-0 campaign. But on February 4, when they travelled to Otterburne to finish the home-and-home series with the Freemen, it was a different story in front of the Providence fans – and Victoria Ryshytylo was a huge reason why.
After dropping the first two sets 19-25 and 21-25, it looked like the same old story for the Freemen against the defending conference champions. But then the huge comeback began, with the Freemen squeaking out wins in the third and fourth sets (25-23, 25-23), as well as in the barnburner fifth 21-19, taking the match 3 sets to 2.
