WVB | Wesmen season ends with loss to Cougars

EDMONTON — The Winnipeg Wesmen wrapped up their Canada West season with a four-set loss on Saturday.

The Wesmen women's volleyball team, playing without left side Emma Parker and already eliminated from advancing in the conference playoff tournament, got 11 kills from Ashleigh Laube, but dropped a 3-1 (25-18, 21-25, 25-22, 25-18) decision to the Regina Cougars in the final match of the season for both teams.

The Wesmen and Cougars both entered Saturday at 0-2 in the round-robin and without an opportunity to land in the top two positions necessary to advance.

Emily Yaeger got the start at right side as Selva Planincic moved to the left to replace Parker, who was injured in a loss on Friday night. Yaeger, a fifth-year senior playing in her final match, had 10 kills, six digs and two aces.

Planincic had 10 kills and tied with Laube with a team-high 11 digs.

Kely Warmington had four solo blocks and a block assist, as well as four aces.

But the Wesmen struggled to mount a consistent attack hitting .163 for the night as Regina's defence generated 10 total blocks and 52 digs.

Regina got 13 kills from Bailey Balaberda, 12 from Jessica Lerminiaux and 11 from Katie House, and finished .267 for the match.
