TWU Spartans (3) at the University of Saskatchewan Huskies (0)

FOR IMMEDITATE RELEASE

SPARTANS BLANK HUSKIES TO OPEN CW POSTSEASON AT HOME

SASKATOON - The No. 8 ranked Trinity Western University Spartans clinched a home playoff series by completing a weekend sweep of the University of Saskatchewan Huskies 3-0 (25-21, 25-19, 25-19) Saturday night at the PAC in Saskatoon.

Entering the weekend the Spartans were in a three-way tie for fourth place with the UBC Thunderbirds and the Brandon University Bobcats, with all three trailing third place Thompson Rivers by two points -with the 10-8 WolfPack having already finished their season. The Bobcats and the Thunderbirds split their series with each other this weekend to finish at 10-8. By defeating Saskatchewan both nights, Trinity Western, at 11-7, clinches third place and a host spot in the first round of the Canada West playoffs.

"We looked good and executed very well. Everybody played great," commented TWU head coach Ben Josephson. "We are really excited to come home for the play-offs."

The game was pretty much dominated by the Spartans as they jumped out to early leads in all three sets.

After a Jarret Christenson spike was swallowed by the net, the Huskies were down 24-20 in the first set. But Huskies' Geoffrey Zerr served into the net for the net point and the Spartans won 25-21.

In the second set the Spartans' defence shined as they went on a six point run in the middle of the set including four blocks. Leading 20-13, Trinity Western continued working the ball around on offense and a strong spike went off the arms of Huskies' Eric Boon and out of bounds for the set point, 25-19.

Looking for some life in the third set the Huskies went point for point with the Spartans to 15. But Trinity Western found their groove once again and went on a seven to one run to lead 22-16 after a Ben Ball (Abbotsford, B.C.) block landed inside the Huskies court. Then, just a few moments later Brian Yuzdepski's final spike as a Huskie was blocked by Marc Howatson (Victoria) to give the Spartans the third set 25-19.

Leading the scoring for the Spartans was Chaim Schalk (Red Deer, Alta.) with 14 kills and 7 digs while Christenson led the Huskies with 10 kills and 3 digs.

The Huskies end their season 2-16.

The Spartans will now open the Canada West best of three series at home on Thurs. Feb. 12 against the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack. Match times at TWU are at 5:30 p.m. The winner will earn a spot at the Canada West Final Four and a berth in this year's CIS championship.

Match Notes: TWU's Rudy Verhoeff (Calgary) finishes the season as the number one attacker for kill efficiency in Canada West. Verhoeff finished at 48 percent, while Alberta's Spencer Leiske finished second at 47.8 percent. He is the second Spartan to earn the title, the other was All-Canadian Chris Meehan (TWU '06) who earned the title in 2005-06 with 49.8 percent...the Spartans also win the title for most digs in a season finishing with 9.77 digs per set, UBC finished second at 9.58. "It is really exciting to win a statistical reward for something that we believe is one of our strengths," commented Josephson...
