Oh the pain and agony! The evil mutated University of Alberta Pandas have shot the Dinos women's volleyball team through the heart. The visiting Pandas downed our previously undefeated Dinos twice Nov. 18-19.

"We needed to make a lot less attack errors," Head Coach Kevin Boyles admitted of the losses.

  Sinking in quick sand as season washes awayPDF files may take a moment to load

With their perennial rivals, the University of Alberta Golden Bears, rolling into town last weekend, the Dinos men's volleyball team knew they had to bring their 'A' game to the court. Facing the defending Canadian Interuniversity Sport champs early on in the season is a huge measuring stick for the struggling Dinos as they tried to take their first win in conference play.

Unfortunately, things did not go quite as planned.

The Dinos men's volleyball team's games Nov. 11-12 did not go as planned. The away series against the top-ranked Trinity Western University Spartans proved to be more challenging than expected. Compounded by the ridiculously low ceiling in the Spartans' gym, the Dinos simply couldn't beat their opponents' serve.

The Dinos women's volleyball team played with the University of Saskatchewan Huskies like they were 12-year-olds with a brand-spanking-new video game Nov. 4-5. Irrelevant analogy you wonder? They never are.

Despite a myriad of injuries and illnesses, the Dinos women's volleyball team managed to scrounge together a group of players to take to Kelowna Oct. 28–29 for some scrimmages and a game at the University of British Columbia Okanagan.

"It gave the bench a chance to get confidence and improve," rookie Raynell Lavertu said. According to Head Coach Kevin Boyles, Lavertu was "awesome" on the weekend.

For the first time in the Dino Cup's 19-year history, women's volleyball was included in the tournament draw Oct. 14-16. In recent years, our ladies have played their first regular season home games during the event, but this year invited the Universite de Montreal Carabins, the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds and the University of Alberta Pandas to vie for gold alongside the men.

"We were pretty motivated," commented Head Coach Kevin Boyles on the race for gold. "There was more on the line."

This year's edition of the Husky Dino Cup is already in the books. The Dinos men's volleyball team took to the court Oct. 14-16, hosting the University of Regina Cougars, University of Pacific Tigers and Stanford University Cardinals.

With a young Dinos team testing the waters against some veteran (not to mention Ivy League) competition, Vegas odds makers were not tipping the scales in favour of the home side. That being said, the results from the weekend left a number of fans pleasantly surprised.

The Dinos women's volleyball team is human after all. Apparently, even the almost perfect do have their slip-ups. The trouble with having so many wins over the last few years is that they stand out like mustard on a white-trash wife beater, whereas a loss is like the guy in the trailer park without a beer in his hand.

While the hype around campus this fall is centred on preparations for the Canadian Interuniversity Sport Women's Volleyball Championship to be held in the Jack Simpson in March, the Dinos men's volleyball team has been quietly rebuilding in hopes of making some championship noise of their own.
