Hagarty and Ketrzynski named Athletes of the Week
Salad King Athletes of the Week
The first Athlete of the Week is Xander Ketrzynski (Toronto) of the men's volleyball team. Playing in his first career OUA postseason game, the conference leader in kills throughout the season carried his stellar play into the playoffs. Ketrzynski powered his way to 30 kills and 34 total points while adding seven digs defensively in the OUA quarter-final. Unfortunately for Ketrzynski, his efforts couldn't lead the Rams to victory as Windsor stole a 3-2 match victory, finishing Ryerson's season.
Brett Hagarty (Aurora, Ont.) is our second Athlete of the Week. Hagarty had a solid overall game in the OUA quarter-final to help propel Ryerson back to the OUA Final Four for the fourth straight year. Hagarty, used more recently as a defensive specialist, had a breakout attacking game, posting seven kills and just one error for a game-high 0.429 hitting percentage. She was also strong from the service line, posting four service aces and applying pressure to Windsor's receive game. Defensively, Hagarty didn't miss a step, picking up 10 digs in the Rams' 3-0 sweep.
Both student-athletes will receive a $20 gift certificate to Salad King.
