Brooke Huculak named Week 8 Athlete of the Week

With arguably the best weekend of any athlete in the MCAC, Assiniboine Community College’s Brooke Huculak has been named an MCAC Week 8 Athlete of the Week.

On Friday, October 30th the ACC Cougars visited the Canadian Mennonite University Blazers for a back-and-forth match that saw both teams trade the first four sets. Thanks in part to Huculak’s 24 kills, 2 aces and 3 blocks on the day, the Cougars overcame the Blazers winning the fifth set by a score of 15-6.

The next day against Les Rouges of Universite de Saint-Boniface, pumped a whopping 27 kills, 4 more aces and another 3 blocks en route to a 3-1 win.

The Police Studies student is at ACC after spending a year at Brandon University before joining a Cougars team that is rolling this season. After dropping their season opener to Providence University College, ACC swept their aforementioned Week 8 games and are tied for second place in the conference early in the season.

“Brooke expects a lot from herself and her teammates” says Cougars head coach, Beth Clark. “Her competitive edge and hard work ethic influence the Cougars team on a daily basis. She is a consistent player, always getting the job done, but is also selfless and wants the best out of her teammates.”

The Cougars look to improve on their record this weekend when they’re hosted by  Red River College this Saturday and University of Winnipeg College on Sunday.
