BU Bobcats Volleyball

(BU Bobcats)

Welcome back sports fans! Although you may have taken reading week off not all your Bobcats had the time to relax.

November 3rd and 4th may seem like a distant memory for those of you who took this siesta off this week but for the volleyball teams they were hard at work. Both the men and women played against the Wolf Pack from Thompson River University and the games went great for the Bobcats. BU ran the wolves out of town winning every game and only losing two sets. The women faced some stiff competition the first night, having three different sets come within two points. It came down to their final set where the Bobcats took the victory 15-13. The second night resulted in a clean slate for BU where the women beat the Wolf Pack by a minimum of 5 points each set.

The men had a phenomenal weekend where their opponents couldn’t keep up to the increasing score. Both nights the Bobcats beat down the wolves and smashed their way to a clean sweep that weekend. November 10th and 11th were a different story for BU. The games against the Spartans resulted in three losses and only a single win.

The women lost both of their games but were able to walk away with a total of three sets won. Friday night resulted in a 1-3 loss where Trinity Western University fought for each point and pushed the Bobcats to the limit. Unfortunately the next night still resulted in a loss even though they won two sets. The Spartans were able to stop the BU offence and break through the Bobcats defensive plays. This is despite Bobcat star player Nikala Majewski had 20 kills
and 17 digs.

The men had a mixed bag this past weekend winning the game Friday but losing on Remembrance Day. The men’s first game stretched all the way to the fifth set and saw the men take a well deserved victory. Three of the team’s members scored 11 kills for the Bobcats including Seth Friesen, Elliot Viles and Matt Powell. Saturday was not the way the Bobcats were hoping their story would go, as their victory from the other night was short lived. The men lost 1-3 sets as the Spartans showed why they are the two time defending U SPORTS national champions.

The women’s record goes to 5-3 while the men’s moves on to 6-2. The volleyball teams’ next games take place in Regina on the 17th and 18th .
