Avalanche have tough home weekend

Men's and women's teams struggle against the Capilano University Blues.

The College of the Rockies volleyball squads had a tough weekend, as both the men’s and women’s teams struggled against the Capilano University Blues.

The women’s Avs were blanked 3-0 in both matches, as their opponents held off a late push on Friday (17-25, 12-25, 23-25). The ladies came out firing the next day (22-25, 23-25, 19-25), but the Blues were able to weather the storm.

The men didn’t fare any better, winning a set, but dropping the match on Friday, while getting blanked 3-0 on Saturday.

The Blues took the first two sets of the weekend’s first match (27-25, 25-14, 23-25, 25-14), before the men took one away by a spread of two points. However, the Blues roared back and won the fourth to take the match.

Capilano swept the three sets on Saturday (25-16, 25-17, 25-21) to earn the win.
