Nov. 4, 2018 - It was a record breaking weekend for one, while the other had a great performance while coming back from injury
The Kodiaks are proud to announce that Dax Whitehead (MVB) and Juhee Anderson (WBB) have been named the Mucho Burrito Athletes of the Week! Both student-athletes will receive gift certificates to Mucho Burrito.
Juhee Anderson - WBB
Juhee shined in her first game back following injury, knocking in 16 points to go along with four rebounds and four assists in a tough loss to Olds College.
She was also a defensive aggressor on the floor, slowing down the opposing point guard all game long. She also helped lead a Kodiaks surge in the third quarter, combining her defense and scoring ability to help her team nearly make a dramatic comeback against the division leading Broncos.
Dax Whitehead - MVB
It was a historic weekend for the Kodiaks fifth year outside hitter. Dax struck for seven kills Friday night, reaching the 1,000 career kill mark during the second set. Dax becomes just the fourth player all-time to reach the 1,000 kill milestone. His performance on Friday also included nine digs and two aces, helping the Kodiaks defeat the Clippers 3-1.
Dax then put away another 12 kills on Saturday, earning player of game honours. He also added nine digs and an ace to cap off the Kodiaks sweep of the Clippers, guiding his team to a perfect 8-0 start to the season. The start is the longest undefeated streak to begin a season in Kodiaks history.
The Kodiaks will host just one home game next weekend, when volleyball welcomes Medicine Hat for a Saturday evening affair at the Val Matteotti Gym. Both volleyball teams will travel to Medicine Hat on Thursday for a rare mid-week matchup.
Kodiaks basketball will hit the road for a pair of games in Calgary, starting with a Friday night showdown with St. Mary's before a Saturday evening tilt with SAIT.
Meanwhile, Kodiaks cross country will look to cap off their season with gold at CCAA Nationals this Saturday, hosted by Seneca College in Toronto. ACAC women's champion Sophia Nowicki enters as an individual medal favourite, while the Kodiaks women's team is ranked number one in the country heading into the race.
