For Immediate Release

DEFENDING NATIONAL CHAMPS VICTORIOUS IN SEASON OPENER

SASKATOON Saskatchwan
– The PAC on College saw the University of Saskatchewan Huskies men’s volleyball team meeting up with the defending national champions, the Trinity Western University Spartans. The men followed the ladies’ lead with the Spartans also sweeping the Huskies in three sets (25-18, 25-17, 25-17).

The Spartans set the tone early with a 25-19 victory. Their momentum carried through the evening. The Huskies failed to even the match dropping the second set 25-15. The offense played strongly on both sides of the net keeping the total kills for the Huskies at 28 and the Spartans at 37. The Spartans put up a huge defense doubling the amount of blocks (13) that the Huskies could put out (6). At 6’7, left side Doug Van Spronsen was an impenetrable wall leading the Spartans with six blocks. The Huskies scrambled to come back and even with Philip Blatz’s 13 kills the Dogs were unsuccessful and lost the third 17-25.

“Canada West men’s volleyball is so tight you have to be prepared for every match everyday. When you’re not and your opponent is, then you’re going to be in trouble,” commented Spartan head coach Ron Pike.

Huskies Head coach Brian Gavlas commented on the evening’s game: “At times we were playing at a decent level and showed that we could play with them and other times we were physically over matched. Being physically over matched isn’t an excuse for us to give up easy points.
Unfortunately we did that probably in just about every set which dictated the outcome.”

The two teams will match up again Saturday evening at the University of Saskatchewan. Match time in Saskatoon is set for 8 p.m.
