EDMONTON – MacEwan’s women’s volleyball team had a huge result in Vancouver, earning a weekend split against perennial U SPORTS powerhouse UBC and Cornelis was a huge reason why.

Her contributions from the outside were key in MacEwan securing a 3-2 victory on Friday to open the weekend series. She led the Griffins with points at key times, finishing with nine kills, two aces, 13 digs, five blocks, accounting for a team-high 13.5 points.

In Saturday’s 3-1 loss, Cornelis was again one of the Griffins’ top performers with seven kills, seven digs, two blocks and 8.0 points.

The result moves the Griffins to 8-6 and keeps them very much alive for the program’s first playoff berth since joining Canada West.
