It always takes a full team effort to start the season 7-0, but in the case of the Providence women’s volleyball squad, they have turned to a team veteran to lead them to their undefeated record.
In her third-year on the team, Lauren Toews has used this season to establish herself as not only a star on her team, but also the MCAC in general. This was no more evident than in the Pilots Week 13 matchup against Red River, where Toews dominated the match with 12 kills, 4 blocks, and 4 aces. This offensive outburst is nothing new from Toews in the eyes of head coach Scott Masterson, but it’s something that he’s grateful his team can count on.
“Lauren’s always been an offensive threat for us, but she’s really turned it on in the last couple of weeks,” says Masterson. “She’s been playing very well, and we’ll continue to look to her as being an impact player for us this season.”
Toews will look to continue her strong play as well, as the Pilots will host Assiniboine Community College for a couple of games in Otterburne to finish off the first half of the season.
Along with her three years at the University College playing volleyball and studying business, Toews has developed quite the passion for Providence, spending the summer developing some great young talent at Providence Sports Camps as a coach. After celebrating already two championships with Providence, Toews and the rest of the team look as motivated as ever to force history to repeat itself come February.
