Men's volleyball remain undefeated, women hunt for playoff spot

Publication YearIssue Date 

This past weekend was an eventful and rewarding time for both University of Calgary volleyball teams. The women's team won both contests versus the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack, taking Friday's match 3-0 and Saturday's 3-1. The men's team continued their perfect 14-0 record by sweeping the TRU Wolfpack 3-0 and 3-0. So far this season the men's side have dominated the whole CW. The Dinos are currently first place in CW, third ranked in CIS standings -- behind second place Alberta and first place Laval -- and are the only undefeated team in all of CIS play.

The Dinos are currently leading CW in hitting percentages, assists and kills. Dinos middle Graham Vigrass is currently in second place for hitting percentages in the CW.

The Dinos look to improve on their record as they prepare for what could be the toughest match of year. The men's team will play a road game series versus the third place University of Manitoba Bisons. The Bisons are currently in third place and have clinched a home playoff spot.

The Dinos women team struggled to find a groove this year. They are currently in a three-way tie for fourth place. This past weekend, the women were able to gain much needed wins over the TRU Wolfpack. They now move on to prepare for a tough game versus the U of M Bisons, who are currently in third place and have clinched a home playoff spot.
