Amy had another tremendous week from all areas of the court for the Bluejays, a week in which they lost a tough 5-setter on the road to Ottawa, defeated then first-place KWU in straight sets, and came right back the next morning and swept York. For the week, Amy would get stronger each match with her attacking, ending up with an incredible .542% v York. In the win over KW, every big point seemed to end up with her swinging away, and connecting.
