Congratulations to Blaire De La Mare, right side for the ACC Cougars women’s volleyball team, who is the female athlete of the week.
The Dauphin, Manitoba native was an offensive threat in the Cougars 3-0 sweep of the Rebels (6-9) this past Saturday. She had eight total kills (8/11) with no errors while stepping into the middle blocker role rather than her typical right-side position.
“Blaire has been one of the hardest working players all year,” says head coach Jeff Maxwell. “She has played every offensive position for us and it was great to see her have her best game of the season when we needed it most.”
The Cougars (6-10) win over the Rebels helped them clinch the last playoff spot in the conference. With a bye this weekend, ACC will get back on the court in the women’s volleyball Final Four on Saturday, February 23 in Providence’s Jubilee Gymnasium.
