Blue Devils Weekly Round-Up Nov. 1-10

Blue Devils Weekly Round-Up Nov. 1-10

Winter sports have come, with three King’s teams kicking their season off starting November 1st. Here’s whats been happening at the Kingdome and around the ACAA…

Women’s Volleyball

A rocky start on the season opening day has made way for back to back wins from the UKC Ladies Volleyball team. The season started on November 1st with a Friday night match against defending ACAA Champions, the MSVU Mystics. After crashing out in 3 sets, the Blue Devils took it back to the drawing board; before knocking off Dal AC in Truro a week later, and Crandall at home on November 10th. A well balanced team of rookies and veteran players; the Blue Devils currently have 2 of their own on the ACAA Leaderboard; Abby Hourigan (Kills per set) and Leah Hartlen (Blocks per set). King’s next travels to Mount Allison for a Saturday afternoon game on November 16.



UKC@DalAC: 0-3 W

UKC vs. Crandall: 3-0 W 

Women’s Basketball

The UKC Women started their season off with a bang with 2 convincing wins to validate their national ranking. Currently sitting 14th in the CCAA National polls; the Blue Devils dispatched the Chargers of Crandall University in their season opener in Moncton, before returning home to play Mount Allison in what was a convincing win for their home opener. King’s is now on a collision course with St. Thomas University (2-0) who currently sit 8th in the nation. The teams will meet in Halifax on November 17th; but first the Blue Devils must see out a replay against Crandall at home on the 16th. Star performers on the UKC include, but are certainly not limited to, Geana George and Claire Hickman, who are 2nd and 4th in the league in scoring respectively.


UKC@Crandall: 72-41 W

UKC vs. Mt. A: 76-42 W

Men’s Basketball

The young Blue Devils are still finding their footing in the ACAA after a rocky start to the season. A difficult season opener at Crandall, followed by a home opener against a veteran Mount Allison side has seen them fall to 0-2. The Blue Devils started 5 rookies, after an injury to veteran guard Jayden Nordin left him sidelined for the home opener. Despite their youth, King’s is not without potential; highlighted in the first home performance from rookie Reese Zorogole, who recorded a first career double-double (26 points, 12 rebounds). The Men’s side will look to regroup in the coming week before replaying Crandall at home, followed by St. Thomas the following day.


UKC@CU: 68-99 L

UKC vs. Mt. A: 78-99 L
