Club riding five-game unbeaten streak heading into winter break

The Columbia Bible College Bearcats women’s volleyball team is heading into the winter break as the hottest team in the PACWEST.

After starting off the regular season with seven straight losses, the Bearcats have reeled off five straight wins to crawl from out of the basement into fifth place in the league.

CBC took down Capilano on Nov. 11, and then swept games against the College of the Rockies Avalanche on Nov. 16 and 17, and then the Camosun Chargers in Victoria on Nov. 24 and 25.

CBC’s Jodi Enns was named the women’s volleyball athlete of the week following the Bearcats win over Capilano. The first win in the streak saw Enns pick up 23 kills with only nine errors on 58 swings. She added two aces, one stuff block and 15 digs while continuing her steady serve receive play with a 2.10 average on 25 attempts.

The men’s volleyball team picked up wins over the UFV Cascades in October and the Avalanche on Nov. 17. They sit in seventh place in the conference. The men have been bit by the injury bug in the first half of the season, but will get key fifth-year player Ben Smith back in 2018.

The volleyball teams return to action on Jan. 5 and 6, when they travel to North Vancouver to take on the Capilano Blues.

The clubs then continue to hit the road for games against the VIU Mariners on Jan. 12 and 13, and then head to Cranbrook to take on the Avalanche on Jan. 19 and 20.

The teams’ next home date doesn’t occur until Jan. 26, when the Douglas Royals come to town.

The PACWEST volleyball championships, which run from Feb. 22 to 24, take place in Abbotsford at UFV.

The top six men’s and women’s teams will battle it out, with the winner representing B.C. on the national stage.
