Emma Parker, Women's Volleyball:
A career-high match and a steady weekend of offensive contributions have netted Emma Parker the Wesmen Athletics female player of the week honour.
Parker, a second-year outside hitter with the Wesmen women’s volleyball team, was the U of W’s top talent last weekend in playing four out of five matches at the Regina Cougars Invitational Tournament, which kicked off the non-conference season.
Parker’s highlight was a 23-kill performance in a five-set loss to Regina on Friday. The total eclipsed Parker’s conference career-high of 15, recorded in January 2018.
Parker also posted two double-doubles with 14 kills and 20 digs against Alberta on Saturday, and 17 and 16 against Manitoba on Sunday. For the weekend, she averaged 18.5 kills.
The Wesmen will host the Unruh Realty Volleyball Challenge starting Friday, welcoming Brandon, Regina and Moncton to town.
