Game Recap

Women’s Volleyball (Non-conference – Exhibition)
Thursday, January 4, 2001
TWU Spartans ( 0 ) vs. University de Sherbrooke Vert & Or ( 3 )
(25-20, 25-18, 25-22)

Spartans Hang with #4 Sherbrooke

Langley, British Columbia –
The match was 3-0 (25-20,25-18, 25-22) for the University de Sherbrooke Vert & Or over the Trinity Western University Spartans in Thursday’s non-conference women’s volleyball match, but the Spartans hung tough with the 4th ranked team in the CIAU.

In the end it was the experience of Sherbrooke and mental errors by Trinity Western at crucial times in each set that separated the Spartans from one of the top teams in the CIAU. In the first set the Spartans missed 5 serves and lost by 5, in the second set they missed 7 serves and lost by 7 and the third set they missed 4 serves and lost by 3 points.

“We are serving tough, but we are just missing our serves at really key times,” said TWU head coach Carol Hofer. “Some [players] are serving better then others, but we are giving [serves] up in strings and we cannot afford to do that.”

In each set Sherbrooke made the most of their opportunities. In set one, with the Spartans serving and down 19-22, the Vert & Or finished the set with a 3-1 run. In the second set, with Trinity Western serving at 16-18, Sherbrooke went on a 7-2 run to finish the set and in the third set, with Spartans down 17-20, the Vert & Or held on to win the set and the match 25-22.

“On the whole I think we played very well, our service errors cost us the sets, but I’m pleased with the progress that we have made. Our hard work is starting to pay off,” said Hofer. “Were starting to score on rallies, and we are starting to put the ball away more consistently and on the whole we are having fewer errors.”

Statistical Leaders
(Sherbrooke) Melissa Raymond 8 kills, Annie Martin 8 kills, 11 digs, Annie Levesque 14 digs.
(TWU) Kristen Groot (1st year, Power, Burnaby, BC) 9 kills, 10 digs and Jolene Dryfhout (3rd year, Power, Surrey, BC) 9 kills, 9 digs.

Next up for the Spartans is the University of Calgary on January 5 and 6 in Calgary, AB.

“If we play as well as we did tonight, and reduce our service errors, we should give Calgary a run for their money,” said Hofer. “We had a great match against them in our season opener [Oct. 27 & 28]. They are a good team and they are going to be stronger, but we are going to be there and I am excited about it.”
