Ooks resume play Jan. 5 at Olds College
Mixed-results for NAIT teams at inaugural event hosted by RDC
Ooks 11-1 at break for best mid-point record in program's history
Ooks finish first half of season in 1st place
At the end of a half-season that was more than satisfactory, the NAIT Ooks absorbed a 5-2 defeat from the Red Deer Queens and Ooks head coach Deanna Martin made it clear that changes are headed their way.
On the scoreboard, it looked like a lost weekend for the NAIT Ooks in women’s volleyball. In terms of on-court progress and team development, the picture was far brighter.
Bouncing back from a difficult volleyball weekend in Grande Prairie, head coach Doug Anton made an early commitment to have his NAIT Ooks ready for improved performances Thursday and Friday against the Augustana Vikings.
Only a few hours after her first-place team bounced back from a shutout loss to defeat the MacEwan Griffins 3-1, NAIT Ooks head coach Deanna Martin referred to a pair of her favourite teaching subjects: character and pride.
As the NAIT Ooks posted a pair of almost-routine weekend victories over the King’s Eagles in ACAC women’s basketball, a significant mid-season record almost slipped past without notice.
Things were not easy for the Ooks men's basketball team in their two game sweep over the well-coached King's Eagles.
