The Blazers won in three straight sets over Assiniboine Community College Cougars (ACC) Cougars on Sat., Nov. 13 and Meisner finished with a match-high 11 kills and only one hitting error for an impressive .435 kill efficiency.

In addition, the Moosehorn, MB native added a team-high five service aces plus contributed five digs for the young CMU squad that evened their league record to 2-2 for the season.

CMU’s head coach Jayme Menzies stated, “Halle has explosive strength, a diligent work ethic, and a competitive desire to win. Already in these early days of her first year, her ability to score is turning heads.”

The Science student-athlete at CMU continues her rookie campaign as the Blazers go on the road to play at Université de Saint-Boniface (USB) Les Rouges (4-0) on Friday, November 19 at 6 p.m. CT and then host USB the next day at 6 p.m. CT.
