Weekend Re-Cap February 3-4, 2012
It was a tough haul for the Chargers basketball and volleyball teams who were on the road this past weekend but despite a few disappointing results, all four teams are still in the running as the teams push into the final weeks prior to the PACWEST playoffs.
In PACWEST volleyball action, the Chargers travelled to Douglas College in New Westminster where they faced the sixth-place Royals women and the No. 2 ranked Royals men. The women split their matches winning in five on Friday and losing in four the following day. Despite Saturday’s loss, Camosun’s second-year rightside Hilary Graham (Courtenay) entered the Chargers women’s volleyball records with an outstanding contribution of 25 kills in one match, just two kills shy of the record holder Dana Allan who achieved 27 on two separate occasions during the 2007-08 season. At 8-11, the Chargers women remain in the No. 5 spot in the PACWEST rankings. The Chargers men struggled in their weekend matches, dropping both contests in four sets. Heading into the final two weeks of PACWEST competition, the men stay in fifth with a record of 6-14. Find set scores for both teams on the Chargers Post
The Chargers basketball teams came home empty-handed on Saturday suffering two losses against the PACWEST’s top-ranked VIU Mariners. The women went down 78-47 leaving them with 6 wins and 7 losses while the men were defeated 76-55, the loss moving them to 9-4. With only two weeks and three games to go, the men move down a notch to third place while the women maintain fifth.
