Camosun Chargers women sweep volleyball weekend

Chargers basketball teams take over the gym at PISE in Saanich this weekend

After soundly beating the Douglas College Royals 3-0 in Friday night PacWest college play, the Camosun Chargers women had a tougher time in Saturday’s match at PISE.

The Chargers won the first two games, 25-21, 25-22, then dropped the next two 23-25, 25-27. A solid 15-8 win in the deciding game salted away the match win for the home side, which improved to 11-7 (third place) on the season heading into this weekend’s matches against last place College of the Rockies (1-15) Avalanche in Cranbrook.

The Chargers volleyball men, who also head to Cranbrook this weekend, split their matches with Douglas College, winning 3-1 Friday and losing 3-0 on Saturday.

Camosun sits at 9-9 overall, tied for third with Capilano University Blues (9-7).

A 62-52 victory over Quest University Kermodes in Squamish on Saturday capped a winning weekend for the Chargers women in PacWest basketball play.

The win followed a 73-53 decision over host Capilano Blues the night before. The victories pushed the Chargers’ record to 9-3, good for second spot heading into this weekend’s home games against Langara Falcons on Friday and Douglas College Royals the next night.

The Chargers men (3-9, sixth place) hope to rebound from a pair of losses, 107-91 to Quest and 70-62 to Capilano, when they take on the first-place Falcons (11-1) and fifth-place Royals (5-7) on home court.

Game times are 6 p.m. (women) and 8 p.m. (men) Friday, and 1 (women) and 3 p.m. (men) Saturday at PISE on the Camosun’s Interurban campus.
