So Close…

Vancouver, British Columbia –
The tenth-ranked Trinity Western University women’s volleyball team gave the third-ranked UBC Thunderbirds everything they could handle in their 3-1 (29-27, 25-22, 22-25, 25-20) loss Friday night at UBC’s War Memorial Gym.

“We played very well and had opportunities to finish games,” said TWU Head Coach Carol Hofer. “Our players followed our game plan to a ‘T’. There were just a couple of points where we did not execute.”

The Spartans (5-8) took a six point lead in the first set and had four opportunities at set point before the Thunderbirds (11-2) rallied to take the first set 29-27.

The second set followed a similar course as the Spartans took a 21-17 advantage late in the frame. But the T-Birds responded once again, evening the count at 21-21 before going on to take four of the next five points.

The Spartans did not roll over though and continued to play hard, winning the third set 25-22. But the TWU attack seemed to run out of steam in the final frame as the UBC front line closed out the match.

Jodi Schaufele (3rd yr, leftside, Vancouver, BC) led the TWU attack with 11 kills and Rhonda Schmuland (4th yr, middle, Calgary, AB) chipped in 10, while both Julie Blackburn (2nd yr, libero, Surrey, BC) and Danielle Foth (1st yr, leftside/rightside, Abbotsford, BC) had a game-high 23 digs.

Chalmers recorded 14 kills on 32 attempts for a .219 hitting percentage, while Van Huizen notched five kills, 12 digs and three blocks. Stephanie Kurz (Parksville, B.C.) put forth a solid effort in place of the starting right side Kirby Dow (Kelowna, B.C.), who is out with an ankle injury, contributing 10 kills and 17 digs.

The two squads battle again Saturday at 6 p.m. at War Memorial Gym.

Match Notes: The T-Birds recorded a whopping 94 digs on the night compared to the Spartans’ 83… TWU held the edge in blocks at 11-9…TWU hit at 12.9%, while UBC hit at 19.6%...
