Statistical leaders: Juamaine Venter (5 goals, 2 assists), Steve

Boussie (3 goals, 2 assists)

Post-season accolades: Soph. Gunnar Knutson named

Honorable Mention All-MIAC

Next season’s outlook: The good news for this team is that

they are only graduating three seniors and return their top

scorer in Venter.

Statistical leaders: Amy Sibik (12 goals, 5 assists), Amanda

Rahman (5 goals, 5 assists)

Post-season accolades: Senior Amy Sibik named First-Team

All-MIAC; Junior Sloane Kuramoto named Honorable

Mention All-MIAC

Next season’s outlook: Losing Sibik will take away a large

part of the Cardinals’ offensive attack, but the return of

Rahman, Kuramoto and keeper Cassie Hulett will provide

a strong base for 2011.

Honorable Mention, First-Team All-MIAC; Junior Amy

Kujak named First-Team All-MIAC

Next season’s outlook: After a disappointing exclusion from

the national tournament, expect the SMU volleyball team

to finish in the top half of the conference again. Kujak

should be the top offensive threat next year.

a single senior on the roster, so expect more improvement.
