Avs host Camosun Chargers

More volleyball action will be taking over the College of the Rockies gym on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon.

There is more Avalanche volleyball action this weekend at the College of the Rockies, as the Camosun College Chargers will make the long trek from the Lower Mainland to the Key City for a pair of games.

The Avs and the Chargers have faced each other before in the fall, as Camosun played host the first time around.

The men’s Avalanche had a pair of losses—one of which came after a tiebreak in a marathon five sets. The ladies fell in straight sets, however, the set scores indicate the game was closer than what the final result indicates.

The ladies are coming off a pair of losses to the reigning national champions—the UFV Cascades—however, there were positive things to pull out of those two matches, said left side Kelsey Thompson.

“We started to play clean, which made us stick in it a lot longer,” Thompson said. “We almost won the second set on Saturday, which was exciting. We just have to play clean and we can play with anyone.”

Having faced the Chargers before, Thompson and her team know they will have their hands full when the teams go head-to-head.

“They’ve got middles that can hit and lots of good power,” Thompson said. “Everyone’s pretty even in these games, so hopefully we can pull off a win.
