Les Rouges Brielle Grenier is the MCAC Female Athlete of the Week for the week ending Nov. 21, 2021

During the fourth week of the 2021-22 Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference (MCAC) women’s volleyball season, a highly competitive weekend saw fourth year middle Brielle Grenier continue to lead the Université de Saint-Boniface (USB) Les Rouges to another win and stay atop the MCAC standings

The co-captain had a strong weekend as she registered 17 kills on 0.419 efficiency with a 55% kill percentage in one match (the other match did not have stats available) in the week ending Nov. 21, 2021.

Les Rouges now hold a 5-1 conference record and avenged a five setter loss on Friday by flipping the result with a 3-2 road victory against the Canadian Mennonite University (CMU) Blazers on Sat., November 20 in the home-and-home series.

The Morris MB native has the ability to take over a match as an attacker while at the middle position. Her power and versatility commands her opponent’s attention, yet Grenier is still highly efficient while also allowing her teammates to be more effective.

USB’s head coach Evan Turenne said, “She reads the play well on the blocking side, and though closing blocks doesn’t show up on a stat sheet, it allows the team to defend well around her block. Brielle has been a great leader as one of our captains this year.”

The Arts student-athlete at USB looks to follow-up with her stellar play as they host another tough opponent with second place Providence University College (PUC) Pilots visiting on Friday, November 26 and Saturday, November 27. First serve both nights at 6 p.m. CT.
