    By Connor Hood on January 6, 2020

    Finishing the weekend series with 67 assists and 12 digs, third-year Alberta Pandas setter Elyse Hart was instrumental in leading the Pandas to a road sweep over the Brandon Bobcats. For her efforts, she was named the Sherlock Holmes Athlete of the Week

    Hart was outstanding in powering the Pandas offence, which included a game-high 29 assists in a straight sets win on Friday night. The third-year setter also added two kills and five digs in the series opener. 

    The Bragg Creek, Alta. product followed that up with another 38 assists on Saturday, while also adding seven digs and two aces. 

    Through 14 games this season, Hart leads Canada West with 508 assists and a 9.77 per set average. Both of her assist numbers are also tops in U SPORTS. 

    She has also hit the 30-assist plateau in all but three games this season.

    The 9-5 Pandas will return to action on January 17th, when they visit their cross-town MacEwan Griffins.
