The University of the Fraser Valley women’s volleyball team boosted its PacWest-leading record to 6-0 with a pair of victories last weekend.

The Cascades swept the Capilano Blues on the road, winning in three sets on Friday and in four on Saturday. Libero Brittany Stewart and setter Kira Tome were among the UFV standouts.

The Cascades men’s squad (1-5) were on the wrong end of a sweep vs. the Blues, falling in straight sets both nights.

The Columbia Bible College women’s volleyballers, meanwhile, swept their weekend games with the Douglas Royals to move into third place in the PacWest standings at 3-3. The Bearcats won in straight sets both nights, with April Van Wieren (nine kills, four aces, three stuff blocks on Friday), Sharaya Schulte (13 digs Saturday) and Anna Cupido (36 assists Saturday) leading the way.

The CBC men (2-4) fell twice in straight sets to the Royals, last season’s national silver medalists.

• The Bearcats are on the road this weekend to face the College of the Rockies, while the Cascades are on a bye.
