Kodiak men 1-1 in Red Deer
On the plus side, the Lethbridge College Kodiaks men’s volleyball team ended their weekend with a little payback courtesy a 3-0 win.
On the downside, they started the weekend on the receiving end of a similar result and for that the Kodiaks come away with a 1-1 weekend following a split with the Red Deer Kings in Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference play Friday and Saturday in Red Deer.
The Kodiaks headed out of town with a 3-0 win Saturday afternoon that puts the team at 11-3, but didn’t have the first weekend of the second semester they were looking for as the Kings posted a 3-0 blanking Friday night.
On the women’s side, the Kodiaks were downed 3-0 both nights and are 2-12 this season.
In the men’s game Saturday afternoon, the Kodiaks won a close first set 25-23 and then notched 2520 and 25-15 wins in the third and fourth sets.
