Rookie Elly Wendel helped Briercrest through adversity over the weekend as they battled against the undefeated, and CCAA nationally seventh ranked, NAIT Ooks both Friday and Saturday.

She followed that up on Saturday with a  match high 14 kills to go with 12 digs and 1 block. She finished the weekend with 26 kills, two service aces, 36 digs, and three blocks.

Elly is from Caronport, SK and in her first year of BA Biblical Studies at Briercrest College.

Congratulations Elly on your being named Athlete of the Week!
