In PACWEST volleyball action this evening, the hosting Camosun College Chargers started their two game weekend series against the CBC Bearcats with a 3-0 loss for the women and an exciting, barn-burning five set victory for the men who defeated the defending National Champions!

Despite a very close first set, Camosun’s women’s squad was unable to get past their opponents tonight and went down in three by the visiting Bearcats who handed the Chargers their ninth loss of the season.

Women’s Final Score

CBC 3-0 Camosun

(27-25, 25-21, 25-1110)
