A record-breaking weekend from Will Quiring paced the Columbia Bible College men’s volleyball team to a pair of wins at Capilano University to open the PACWest regular season.
Quiring, a sophomore outside hitter, racked up a team-record 30 kills in a five-set win on Friday, with the Bearcats prevailing 16-14 in the fifth set.
The CBC men had an easier time of it Saturday, beating the Blues in three sets behind 17 kills and five blocks from Quiring and seven kills from Matt Erickson.
“We did a better job controlling the net and were much more steady with our serving and passing,” head coach Rocky Olfert said. “Jason Warkentin did a good job moving the ball around and we got everyone involved.”
In other PACWest volleyball action, the Bearcats women dropped both matches to Capilano in straight sets.
The University of the Fraser Valley teams opened on the road at Douglas College, and the Cascades women swept their weekend set, beating the Royals in four sets Friday and three sets Saturday. Jenna Evans racked up 13 kills in the second win, while Kierra Noot had five blocks.
The UFV men split with Douglas, winning in four sets Friday and falling in three on Saturday.
• The two Abbotsford college v-ball programs face off this week, as the Cascades host the Bearcats on Friday and Saturday at the Envision Athletic Centre. The women play at 6 p.m. both nights, followed by the men at 7:45 p.m.
