In PACWEST volleyball action Saturday, the hosting Camosun College Chargers completed their two game weekend series against the Columbia Bible College Bearcats with a pair of losses.

Despite losing the first set 25-15, the Chargers women turned the tables on their opponents in the second winning the set with a convincing 25-15 score of their own. The Bearcats retaliated and walked away with the third set which ended 25-10. The fourth could have gone either way with each team hungry for the win but the contest went to the visitors 26-24 who chalked up the second victory of the weekend.

Women’s Final Score

CBC 3-1 Camosun

(25-15, 15-25 25-10, 26-24)

Second-year leftside Elizabeth Davis (Glenlyon) led the Chargers once again with 13 kills and 8 digs.

The Chargers men came out blasting tonight taking the first set 25-21 and setting the home crowd on fire, but the Bearcats responded with a convincing 25-18 win in the second. The last two sets, which eventually went to CBC, were head to head battles and like most of the action played this weekend, were characterized by some of the most exciting volleyball played in the PISE gym and despite the loss suffered by the home team, fans were not disappointed.

Men’s Final Score
