The Dinos men's volleyball team will look back on this year's dismal performance and contemplate how the season got away from them. But for two of the veteran players, it's more about looking forward to new challenges, new jobs and new families. Both Rob Ellis and Eric von Engelbrechten have completed their fifth year of eligibility and are bidding a fond farewell to their Dino careers. With their departure the worst loss suffered by the team this season was not on the court, but from the starting lineup.

Talent

This team was as short on talent as the Stampede is on cowboys. Both of the team's fifth-year players excelled this year. Natalie Schwartz led the Canada West conference in assists while Neda Boroumand was CW's top digger. Schwartz was named a Canadian Interuniversity Sport Second-Team All-Canadian and CW First-Team All-Star. Earning CW Second-Team All-Star salutations was third-year Lauren Perry.

In recent times, the Dinos women's volleyball team has been one of the most successful varsity teams by any standard. As the season came to a close with the Canadian Interuniversity Sport Championship taking place here at the University of Calgary in early March, the team lost two players who have been around to experience many of the team's richer years. Natalie Schwartz and Neda Boroumand both played their last games as Dinos, winning the bronze-medal match against the Universite de Montreal Carabins.

  Volleysaurs get some losses out of their systemPDF files may take a moment to load

In the two weeks approaching the Canadian Interuniversity Sport Women's Volleyball Championship, the Dinos women's volleyball team have been rudely awakened. Having a secure spot at the national championship as hosts, they slept comfortably all season dreaming of the final few games. With those games now upon us, our ladies must recover from the buckets of water they were doused with, the intense light switched on overhead and the blasting music of their alarm clocks that have plagued them throughout the Canada West playoffs.

The Dinos women's volleyball team fought a battle as epic as Peter Griffin and the giant chicken Feb. 11-12. They traveled east to Manitoba where they exchanged blows with the University of Winnipeg Wesmen. While the results weren't exactly ideal--a pair of wins would have given our ladies home-court advantage in Canada West quarter-finals--everyone's limbs are intact and the Dinos still stand on both feet.

The Dinos men's volleyball team's coming out party was held in the Jack Simpson Gymnasium Jan. 27-28. While it's unfortunate it came around so late in the season, the squad is happy it finally happened.

"It just proves my theory," beamed head coach Greg Ryan. "We finally have a healthy setter, we were more consistent in assists--it has a direct effect on our kill percentage."
