Lady Avs Advance to PACWEST Provincials

The Lady Avs have secured themselves a berth at the PACWEST Provincial Championships by finishing 5th in league play.  This is the first time in the history of the women's Avalanche program that the ladies have advanced to Provincials.  Go Avs Go!

The Provincials are being hosted by Camosun College in Victoria, BC at the PISE.  The Avs will face off against the #4 ranked UFV Cascades on Thursday, Feb 26th at 6pm PST.  

Check out all the action on the PACWEST Provincial Volleyball Championship website.

The men had a rough last weekend of league play and needed to dig deep and pull out a few wins in order to maintain their 6th place ranking.  Unfortunately the wins were just out of reach and the men finished the league in 7th place just out of a Provincial berth.

Friday night, the Lady Avs trounced the Cascades 25-20, 25-18 and 27-25. Saturday provided more of the same as the Lady Avs maintained momentum, winning three close sets 25-21, 25-23 and 25-20.
