Meg MacKinnon, Dominique Ryan
Volleyball players Meg MacKinnon and Dominique Ryan are this week’s Holland College Hurricanes athletes of the week.
MacKinnon, a second-year middle studying in the practical nursing program, had a strong weekend at the Atlantic Collegiate Athletic Association (ACAA) championships in Saint John, N.B.
The Charlottetown native had two kills in the ‘Canes straight-set sweep of the Tommies Saturday before recording seven kills, an ace and three blocks in their five-set loss to the Mount Saint Vincent Mystics in the conference championship game. It was the Hurricanes second straight silver medal.
MacKinnon was named a second team all conference player on Friday.
Ryan, a second-year setter in the business administration program, had one kill, 31 assists and a dig in the Hurricanes semifinal loss to the eventual conference champions, the St. Thomas Tommies, on Saturday.
In ACAA regular season play this season, the Charlottetown native finished third in assists with 370 and assists averaged per set with 6.73.
The six-foot dual-athlete was named a second team all-Canadian on the baseball diamond earlier this year.
