Bearcats’ Schulte honoured by PacWest

Sharaya Schulte of the Columbia Bible College Bearcats picked up the PacWest women's volleyball player of the week award last week.

Sharaya Schulte of the Columbia Bible College Bearcats picked up the PacWest women’s volleyball player of the week award last week.

Schulte, a rookie libero out of Mennonite Educational Institute, anchored the Bearcats’ defence in a pair of wins over the College of the Rockies Avalanche last weekend. She notched 12 digs on Friday, and 12 more on Saturday.

“The Avalanche are a very tough serving team,” CBC coach Duncan Harrison noted. “Sharaya was on the move for the duration of both matches. She really led by example on both serve receive and defence.”

LOCAL TEAMS RANKED NATIONALLY

The Bearcats and their crosstown rivals, the UFV Cascades, were both mentioned in the initial Canadian Colleges Athletics Association (CCAA) rankings released Tuesday.

The Cascades, tops in the PacWest conference at 6-0, debuted at No. 5. It’s fair to wonder if the defending CCAA bronze medalists are underrated at this point – the Vancouver Island University Mariners, second in the PacWest at 5-1, are ranked No. 1 in the nation, owing to their status as defending national champs.

The Bearcats (5-3, third in PacWest) check in at No. 10 in the CCAA rankings, which is a record for the program.
