  Volleysaurs look for clutch, not crutch playersPDF files may take a moment to load

If injuries were spots due to melanin buildup beneath the skin, the freckle-prone Dinos women's volleyball team has spent too long basking in the glory of the sun. They went into a pair of road games against Canada West's top team, the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds, Jan. 28-29, short four players.

When a coach sums up a season with descriptors such as "fallen off the turnip truck" and "unbelievably annoying," it is fairly evident that something has gone horribly awry. Anyone in attendance at the Dinos men's volleyball team's matches Jan. 20-21 could attest to that. The squad hosted the second-ranked Trinity Western University Spartans and it wasn't pretty.

"In the year 2006, the Dinos women's volleyball team will finally defeat the University of Alberta Pandas for the first time this season."

This prediction, while broadcasted widely throughout the nooks and crannies of my brain in late 2005, was never publicly announced. But I stand by my word: I can see into the future. The Dinos split a series with the Pandas Jan. 13-14 in Edmonton.

One would not expect the 1-9 University of Saskatchewan Huskies to pose any threat to the 8-2 Dinos women's volleyball team. But then again, one would also not expect Rob Schnieder to make another Deuce Bigelow movie.

In the spirit of Rob's fantastic acting prowess, our ladies came out a little weak Jan. 7-8 against the Huskie ladies. Saturday's first set saw our ladies fall behind early, regroup with a six-point run to lead 16-12 at the second technical break and secure the win 25-20.

  Dinos can't recover from nosedivePDF files may take a moment to load

While most students were relishing the last few hours of their winter break, the Dinos men's volleyball team was picking up their season right where they left off before final exams. Unfortunately, where they left off was a tailspin that saw the team's record fall to 2-8 in Canada West conference play.

  Newcomers leave brand on DinosPDF files may take a moment to load

The early parts of the season have not been kind to the Dinos men's volleyball team. They've faced the number-one seeded Trinity Western University Spartans, the defending league champion University of Alberta Golden Bears and tested the waters with newcomers to the Canada West conference, the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack and the Brandon University Bobcats.

"We knew the start of the season would be difficult since we were on the road against some very highly-ranked teams," admitted Head Coach Greg Ryan.

  Regina Cougars not welcome in JackPDF files may take a moment to load

The Dinos women's volleyball team have been left with a few torn off bits of tissue and some razor burn after some close bouts with the University of Regina Cougars Dec. 2-3. The visitors visited and the hosts hosted. Luckily, the polite Cougars gave the hosting Dinos the last laugh.

The Dinos women's volleyball team got back in stride Nov. 26-27 with wins over the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack.

Saturday's game was perhaps closer than the Dinos had hoped. While the Dinos did win in straight sets (25-22, 26-24, 25-21), errors on their side made it more difficult.

"We made lots of unforced errors, but didn't feel seriously threatened," Head Coach Kevin Boyles admitted.

When two teams are evenly matched, the result is nearly always a fiercely contested, edge-of-your-seat thriller. When these two teams happen to be occupying the bottom two spots in the conference standings, the games may not draw a spectacular number of fans, but the product is no less entertaining. The Dinos men's volleyball team found themselves in this very situation Nov. 26-27 as they traveled to Kamloops to face the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack. The outcome was indeed exciting.
