Just three days after winning Canada West Rookie of the Year, Savannah Purdy proved the voters made the right call, as she was nearly unstoppable in helping lead TWU to their third conference championship in the last five years. Purdy earned a match-high 10 kills and didn’t make a single attacking error while hitting .769. She also added two aces, seven digs and three blocks.
Purdy was influential in one of the Spartans most dominant performances of the year in which they didn’t allow Calgary to collect more than 18 points in any of the three sets.
With Purdy’s effort, the Spartans capped the conference playoffs with a perfect 5-0 record, which ultimately sent TWU into the national championship tournament as the No. 1 seed. TWU will open the U SPORTS Championship Friday (12 p.m. PT) against local rival UBC in the quarter-finals.
