Cori Sears Joins Windsor Lancers
Windsor, ON - Head Coach Lucas Hodgson is pleased to announce the commitment of top recruit Cori Sears to the Lancer women's volleyball program.
A middle and outside hitter at John F Ross CVI in Guelph, Ontario, Sears is a two time team MVP with her squad in 2010 and 2013. Hodgson is eager to have Sears joining the Lancer program. "Cori is going to give us the size and athleticism that we have been looking for," said Hodgson. "She has the ability to play multiple positions and has a very high volleyball IQ."
After capturing gold medal this past December at the McGregor Cup with her club team the KW Predators, Sears is looking to repeat the team's gold medal performance at the Ontario Championships this weekend in Waterloo.
The future Digital Journalism and Communications major feels Windsor is the perfect place to not only improve her game, but also to excel academically. "Over the next five years, I would like to help the team continue in their recent success and win an OUA championships, while at the same time gaining experience within my academic program," commented Sears. "I am hoping to continue to improve my game and become successful at the next level, and I see that happening at Windsor." Hodgson agrees, "We think Cori can push right away to make an impact on the team and help us get to the playoffs once again and hopefully help us make a run at a championship."

Girls 16U Black Win Provincial Gold
It is not unusual for a team to state as their goal to perform, win or lose, as well as it can, but it is often easier said than done to achieve that goal. It is with great pride and satisfaction that the U16 Girls Black team announces that this year it has achieved that goal.
Although the highest place finish which the team earned in OVA tournaments throughout the season was a 4th place finish, as the Provincials began, the team really came into its own. The weekend prior to the Provincials the team returned victors from Vaughan where they had participated in a warm-up tournament hosted by the Markham Stingers club, and on Friday, the opening day of the Provincials tournament the team won all 3 of its preliminary pool matches in Division 3. On Saturday, after dropping its first match, the team experienced a significant setback when its setter suffered a tournament-ending injury minutes before its 2nd pool play match was scheduled to commence. Playing without its setter for the first time all year, the team rallied within itself, and in a strong show of character completed its last pool two matches with spirited efforts; the first match was lost 2-1, but the second match (against the eventual pool winner) resulted in a 2-0 victory.
On Sunday, the team continued its fine play, first defeating Barrie Fusion 2-0 in the quarter-finals, then defeating Forest City 2-1 in the semis, and then defeating EOVC (Airforce) 2-1 in the finals to take the gold medal. The semi-final match against Forest City was a particularly exciting match, with set scores of 26-24, 24-26, and 15-13 (although as the coach is wont to say, the match was closer than the score would indicate). Overall, the teamís match record for the Provincials weekend was 7-2. All players contributed to this seasonís effort, and a great job was done by all.
