The University of the Fraser Valley Cascades women’s volleyball team is a perfect 6-0, having defeated the College of the Rockies Avalanche, 3-0 in PACWest action.

The match was played at the Envision Athletic Centre, and the sets were 25-13, 25-18 and 25-17.

“Tonight was a solid team effort on both sides of the ball. From start to finish the ladies stuck to the game plan with a solid block to defend around and have an aggressive transition game to go after kills. Every player made an impact in the game, performing our complete team ability,” said head coach Dennis Bokenfohr.

“It’s been a fabulous start to our season with a 6-0 record, “added team captain Brittany Stewart. “It’s going to be exciting to see how we match up against VIU (Vancouver Island University) this coming weekend, who took second at nationals last year.

“I feel that this is one of the strongest teams UFV has had in terms of women’s volleyball; we have incredible depth with each person bringing a different element to the game.”

Kayla Bruce, of Surrey, recorded six aces, six kills and two blocks.  Kierra Noot, also of Surrey, in two sets had seven blocks and three kills. Jenna Evans, of Abbotsford, had one set of play, but recorded four kills, three aces and six digs.

n The UFV men’s volleyball team lost to the Avalanche, 3-2, to see their PACWest regular season record fall to 3-3. The sets were 25-19, 20-25, 25-15, 25-27 and 12-15.

The Cascades were led by Victor Zych, Port Coquitlam, with 19 digs, Alec Dumerton, Abbotsford, with 15 kills and Trevor Nickel, Abbotsford, with five blocks.

VIU is in Abbotsford to challenge the Cascades this weekend. Friday night the women play at 6 p.m. and the men at 7:45 p.m.  Saturday the women start at 1 p.m. and the men at 2:45 p.m. All games are at the Envision Athletic Centre.
