Megan Brennan (2011 grad) new ACAC ‘queen of kills’ smashing 12-year league record

In her four years suiting up for the SAIT Trojans, Megan Brennan has received a tremendous amount of volume by any outside hitter’s standards… and all for good reason.

During a match versus Red Deer College Queens on Saturday, February 20th, Brennan put away her 1042nd career kill – putting her top of the ACAC chart of all-time conference kill leaders.

She passed Daina Kroska (NAIT 1991-94) who held the record of 1041 for over a decade.

SAIT Trojans head coach Art O’Dwyer told Trojans writer Brody Mark in an interview on February 21st:

“Everybody in those first years were keying on her, and they still are, and she’s figured out different ways to score by developing her skills. That shows a lot of growth as a player,” O’Dwyer said. “That’s the part I’m most proud of; that she has learned and has embraced the idea of learning.”

2015-16 marked one of SAIT’s most successful in women’s volleyball history, seeing the team go 17-7 in regular season play, finishing second in the ACAC South. SAIT went on to win their quarter final match against Lakeland College Rustlers before falling to TKUC Eagles in the semi finals.

GPRC Wolves bested the Trojans in the bronze medal match – however, a fourth place finish in the conference is SAIT’s best finish in recent years. 1987-88 was the last year that SAIT earned an ACAC medal.

Brennan plans to return to SAIT to play out her fifth and final year of eligibility, sure to increase her totals and leave a mark on the ACAC record books for many years to come.

Congratulations Megan!
