FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPARTANS SEASONS WINDING DOWN
    
LANGLEY, British Columbia
– This is the last weekend of regular season play for the remaining Spartan teams. The Spartans men’s hockey will return to the ice for the first time since being eliminated from the playoff race last weekend. In CIS action the Spartans track and field team will compete in the CIS national championships in Manitoba. The Spartans swim team has finished their CIS season but will compete in a meet. Finally, the men’s soccer team will play a preseason tilt against an NCAA team.

Victoria will welcome the Spartans for their last two games of the season. Last weekend the Spartans mounted an impressive comeback, but were unable to overcome a four goal deficit. Despite a strong final 30 minutes in which the Spartans scored three unanswered goals, Trinity Western ultimately lost the 4-3 game. The loss brings their record to 4-14-4 and mathematically knocks them out of the playoff race.

Victoria (9-11-2) won their first game of the weekend against the Spartans with a score of 4-3, but found themselves with a loss in their game against Simon Fraser. SFU scored four goals in the last frame to run away with the 5-1 game.

The Spartans and Victoria will play at 8 p.m. on Friday and 4 p.m. on Saturday in Victoria.

Meanwhile, the Spartans will have five athletes competing at nationals this year including high jumper Emma Nuttall, hurdlers Calum Innes and Hazel Ross, 1500m runner Fiona Benson and pentathlete Jake Powrie.  The meet runs from Mar. 8-10 at the University of Manitoba.
    
In the pool, the Spartans will participate in a non-conference meet, in the Canadian Senior Championships.

Finally, the Spartan men’s soccer team will play a non-conference friendly against the Simon Fraser Clan.

The game will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday at the Clan’s home field in Burnaby, B.C.
