Samantha Zacharias did something Saturday afternoon that has become routine for her, by getting another kill in the Margaret P. Reimer Memorial Gymnasium. But this kill was special, as it was her 1,000th! This is a number that no other volleyball player has done in a Briercrest uniform, and only two others have ever done in ACAC women's volleyball history.
Zacharias has lots of accolades as a Briercrest student-athlete, including being two time reigning ACAC women's volleyball Player of the Year and CCAA All-Canadian, 2015 CCAA women's volleyball Player of the Year, and two time Briercrest female Athlete of the Year. She also holds several ACAC records including most service aces in a season with 88 and in a game with 14. She also leads the ACAC in career service aces with 158.
Last year, she helped lead Briercrest to their first ever CCAA championship medal game where the team lost in the bronze medal game. The fourth-year Business student hopes she can lead her team to new heights this year, and they are well on their way as they are the top ranked ACAC team and third ranked in the CCAA rankings with an ACAC best 20-2 record.
