Ryerson Rams Volleyball vs Trent Excalibur

Ryerson Rams Women's Volleyball Update:

With yet another dominant 3-0 victory, this time against the Trent Excalibur, the Ryerson Rams remain undefeated through five games in this year’s regular season.

Today’s victory saw Ryerson maintain their winning streak. The Rams have taken 15 straight sets across five games, dropping their only two set losses in their season opener against McMaster.

Cailin Wark (Georgetown, Ont.) had a stellar first set, tallying three back-to-back service aces and four in total on the match. The Rams took the first set by a dominant score of 25-7, and continued pushing through the remainder of the game

The Rams mixed up their lineup as the game progressed, with Lindsay Kleuskens (London, Ont.), Molly Peters (Surrey, B.C.), Jade Griffiths (Windsor, Ont.), Demetra Maragos (Vancouver, B.C.) and Alicia Lam (Oakville, Ont.) all contributing in the victory.

The Rams took the second and third sets by scores of 25-15 and 25-13 respectively, topping the Excalibur by a final score of 3-0.

Ryerson’s Lauren Veltman tallied 18 kills on the match, setting a personal-best previously set last year. In her second season with the Rams, Veltman has dominated the court through four matches this year.

“I feel we’re really sticking together as a team,” said Veltman after the game. “Everyone’s clicking so well and it just happens to be working.”

Ryerson’s head coach, Dustin Reid, said the team was almost perfect on the court today.

Ryerson Rams Men's Volleyball Update:

Coming off of a season-opening victory against defending the OUA champions, the McMaster Marauders, the Rams knew they had to follow up on their grand opening. Heading into the season’s second game, coach Adam Simac prepared his team for the best the Excalibur had to offer.

“We know that [Trent] will be scrappy and fight for every ball,” he said. “We have to expect that every team will now be coming at us with nothing to lose - playing loose and free and risking on each ball.”

The Excalibur showed this to be true immediately, leading to back and forth battles throughout the match. Doubling the kills of their opposition in the first set, the Rams moved from a tense 25-17 win into a more comfortable 25-12 second set.

In the third, the Excalibur had to scramble to save themselves from the sweep. They took the lead early on, pushing for the chance to come back in a fourth set. However, the Rams were finding opportunities all over the court and took the third set by a more slim 25-22 margin.

In Trent’s pushes, Brett Whitley (Brighton, Ont.) boasted a strong blocking presence. In turn, the Rams offensive output was bolstered by the 30 assists of Adam Anagnostopoulos (Waterloo, Ont.) to help lift the Rams over the Excalibur and into a 2-0 record to kick off the season.

Heading out of their strong start, the Rams now set their sights on the York Lions. On Friday, November 10th, the Rams will face the Lions at the Tait McKenzie Centre to close out their season-opening road trip. Then, they will have their home opener at the Mattamy Athletic Centre, playing host to the Trent Excalibur on November 12th.
