ATHLETES OF THE WEEK – Nov. 16, 2015

Female – Rachel Marriott – Hockey
Rachel Marriott (Waterloo, Ont.) of the women’s hockey team found her stride at the right time as the third year centre collected four points (2g, 2a) in a pair of weekend victories of Ryerson and Toronto.  On Friday night, Marriott found the net twice (including the game winner) and added an assist as Waterloo skated past the Rams 5-1.  On Saturday, Marriott picked up an assist on the tying goal in the dying minutes of the third and the Warriors went on to upset the No. 2 Varsity Blues 3-2 in overtime. The Warriors now sit in fourth spot in the ultra-competitive OUA standings.

Male – Braden Cok – Volleyball
Outside hitter Braden Cok (Waterloo, Ont.) has been on an absolute tear for the Waterloo men’s volleyball team and continued his hot hand on the weekend leading the Warriors past Ryerson and Toronto tallying 39 kills in the process.  In Friday night’s 3-1 win over the No. 8 Rams, Cok posted 19.5 points on 15 kills, one service ace and five blocks.  On Sunday afternoon, Cok was once again unstoppable as the Warriors earned another 3-1 win, this time over the Varsity Blues.  Cok led all players with 26.5 points which included 24 kills, two services aces and one block.  Cok currently sits on top of the OUA leaderboard in kills with 120 in 29 sets of action.
