Thoughts from WolfPack head coach Pat Hennelly:
This past weekend we stabilized serving and ran some more offence out of our middles, Sam (Taylor Parks, 3rd year, Kelowna, BC) and Jordan Foot (5th year, Prince George, BC) . Anton Napolitano (2nd year Victoria, Australia) is a setter now and was good this past weekend, he was effective from the service line and spread the offence around. I think teams are looking at Dobbert (Tim, outside hitter, 4th year, Aichelberg, Germany) as a main offensive weapon for us, Mount Royal did a god job Friday but Dobbert was more effective Saturday. This weekend will come down to serve and pass for our team, we have some offensive weapons and if our first contact is good we will be competitive.”
