Dalhousie’s women’s volleyball team stunned first-place Saint Mary’s Jan. 29 at The Tower, needing four sets to hand the Huskies their first defeat of the season.

The Tigers lost the first set 25 – 14, but quickly improved their play in the next three to win the match with 25 – 9, 25 – 20 and 25 – 22 scorelines.

Raessa Lalani led the Tigers with 13 kills and eight digs. Maggie Li and Louise Facca were offensive powerhouses themselves with 11 and ten kills, respectively.

The CIS No. 10 ranked Tigers have now extended their winning streak to four games, inching within two points of Saint Mary’s, the country’s second best team, at the top of the table with three games remaining. The Huskies, however, have a game in hand.
