By Andrea Elliott

Duke of Somerset Team of the Month

The Duke of Somerset Team of the Month for November is the women's volleyball team. Throughout the month of November the Rams posted a perfect 6-0 record to end the 2017 portion of the season with an unbeaten 8-0 record.

Over the course of six matches the Rams dropped just four sets while winning 18 in November. The month was highlighted by a 3-1 victory over the team's rivals from the University of Toronto. The win over the Varsity Blues on November 17 handed Toronto their first regular season loss since February of 2015.

The Rams consistent play has drawn attention across the country as the team has steadily climbed the U SPORTS national rankings. Ryerson entered the rankings on November 7 in the No. 10 position and have risen one position each week since to currently sit No. 7 in Canada.

Libero Julie Longman (Newmarket, Ont.) also reached a career milestone in the month of November, recording the 1,000th dig of her career on November 24th to become the first Ryerson women's volleyball player to ever do so.

As winners of the Team of the Month award, the team will receive complementary food platters for a team event at the Duke of Somerset.
