Kate Beaulieu The Lakehead Women’s Volleyball team hosted the York Lions for — LU hoped — an exciting home opener. Unfortunately, the game did not go as planned. In a gym full of 80s themed volleyball enthusiasts, LU lost three straight sets to the Lions – 25-20, 25-14, and 25-17. The ‘Wolves made some beautiful [...]
The Lakehead University Women’s Volleyball team dropped two matches against the Guelph Gryphons last weekend, losing 3-0 on Friday (25-20, 25-15, 25-17) and 3-0 on Saturday (25-22, 25-17, 22-15).

The Lakehead University Women’s Volleyball team hit the road to Winnipeg for a tournament this past weekend.
The Wolves continued to push their opponents this weekend, forcing the Gee-Gee’s to a five-set game on Friday night. Lakehead battled hard, but couldn’t pull off the win.
The Thunderwolves were finally rewarded for their efforts Saturday night. The Wolves have had five matches this year go to five full sets without any of them resulting in a win.
The Women’s volleyball team was deserving of a better result this weekend as they battled hard in both their match-ups, but they were unable to walk away with any wins. Lakehead’s squad is still relatively young, and has been showing signs of improvement. They never gave up on the ball this weekend, often sacrificing the body by diving to the hard court to make a play.
The Wolves dropped both games against York this weekend, losing 3-2 on Friday night and 1-3 Saturday night. They also play Sunday against the Brock Badgers. I predict the Wolves walk away with a win on that one.
