Zoé Savoie named Week 11 Athlete of the Week

The Universite de Saint-Boniface women’s volleyball team improved on their record with 2 big wins in Week 11, besting University of Winnipeg College 3-1 (25-18, 25-21, 19-25, 28-26) followed by a 3-1 (24-26, 25-17, 25-21, 25-15) victory over Red River College. Rookie middle Zoé Savoie was instrumental in Les Rouges’ win over RRC, posting 14 kills and 12 digs.

“Zoé has had an immediate impact on the USB women’s volleyball program and will be a key player for us this season” says USB head coach, Martin Rochon.

The 5’9” business administration student is originally from Winnipeg where she attended high school at Collège Louis-Riel before spending last season with Laval University in Quebec City.

“It was a positive week for the team and Zoé displayed a consistent and balanced effort throughout the game (against RRC)” adds Rochon.

Les Rouges now sit fourth in the MCAC with a 3-3 record, just two points shy of the third-place RRC Rebels. Savoie and her Les Rouges will look to extend their win streak at home against second-place Canadian Mennonite University tomorrow night at 6pm.
