Spoiler alert: women's volleyball team sweeps WolfPack

Second place is first loser, right? Try telling that to the University of Calgary Dinos women's volleyball team.

Their dominant effort last weekend in a two-game series against the University of Thompson Rivers WolfPack proved they wanted a first-place finish in the Canada West conference.

Unfortunately, the two wins were not enough. A first place finish required the University of Alberta Pandas to lose their remaining games. They did not.
