ATHLETES OF THE WEEK – Nov. 23, 2015

Female – Stephanie Sluys – Hockey
Stephanie Sluys (Clinton, Ont.) was unbeatable on the weekend stopping all 42 shots faced as the Warriors picked up two victories over Brock and Laurier extending their winning streak to five games.  On Saturday, Sluys turned aside all 25 shots for her second shutout of the season as Waterloo topped Brock 1-0 in overtime.  In Sunday’s battle of Waterloo, Sluys was given the day off but after Laurier made it 3-1 the kinesiology student found herself back in the net and was perfect in relief turning aside all 17 shots faced allowing her Warriors to mount a comeback and defeat the Hawks 4-3.

Male – Jordan McConkey – Volleyball
Jordan McConkey (Stratford, Ont.) was a critical component of Waterloo’s weekend success as the Warriors dropped only one set in victories over Windsor and Western.  In Friday night’s win over the Lancers, McConkey was efficient in his attack with 11 kills on just 18 attempts and was also big at the net with three blocks.  McConkey continued his stellar play on Saturday with four more kills and a block while adding two service aces as the Warriors swept arch rivals Western for their fifth straight win.  The men’s volleyball team is now tied for third in the OUA with 12 points.
