(CALGARY, AB - U SPORTS) Emily Foest and Sadie Dick led the way with 15 kills apiece to push the Brock Badgers to a 3-1 (25-21, 17-25. 23-25, 21-25) win over the Dalhousie Tigers in the consolation semifinal at the U SPORTS Women’s Volleyball Championship from the Jack Simpson Gym.

After losing the first set, the Badgers rallied back to take three sets in a row to book a spot in the consolation final.

Foest was the Badgers most clinical attacker, as she finished with a hit percentage of .407 on her 15 kills. Dick finished the game with a hit percentage of .344 while Myriam Arseneau also had the exact same percentage on her 14 kills. Julie Moore paced the Tigers with 16 kills in a losing effort.

Brock will now await the winner of the second consolation semifinal between the Calgary Dinos and the Toronto Varsity Blues.
