Female Third Star – Megan Festival
UBC Okanagan Heat volleyball
Game log: Friday, February 5 – 14 kills, 15 digs, and four aces in 3-2 L vs. TWU / Saturday, February 6 – 12 kills, 20 digs, and three blocks in 3-2 W vs. TWU.
In a Canada West women’s volleyball first place showdown between the top ranked teams in the country, a depleted UBCO Heat lineup escaped with a split thanks in large part to Megan Festival.
Missing two starters on Friday night, the Heat were just a few breaks from taking the match but ultimately fell in five sets. Festival led the offence with 14 kills on 33 swings and added four aces.
UBC Okanagan are tied with the Spartans atop the Canada West standings with an 18-2 record, and are on the road at MacEwan this weekend (Feb. 12-13) before closing the season out at home versus Mount Royal (Feb.19-20).
