Milcania Diaz-Rojas and Max Arsenault
Milcania Diaz-Rojas and Max Arsenault are this week’s Holland College Hurricanes athletes of the week.
Diaz-Rojas, a rookie Hurricanes guard from Toronto, helped the women’s basketball team clinch the No. 1 seed for the Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA) playoffs with a weekend sweep of the UNBSJ Seawolves.
Milcania, an open academic studies student, had 11 points and three rebounds on Sunday after scoring four points and grabbing four rebounds on Saturday.
Arsenault, a fifth-year libero from Fredericton, N.B., played the final two home games of his career during the weekend as the Hurricanes swept the Sainte-Anne Dragons in men’s volleyball.
The six-foot sport and leisure management student helped the third-place Hurricanes to an 8-5 record this season.
The St. Thomas Tommies (8-4) host the Hurricanes in Fredericton on Saturday at 4 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m. The teams will meet in the ACAA semifinals on Feb. 27.
