LANGLEY, British Columbia – The Trinity Western women’s volleyball team earned a pair of wins to open the West Coast Classic preseason tournament, knocking off Regina in four sets and Alberta in three sets Friday at the Langley Events Centre.

The Spartans beat Regina 3-1 (25-27, 25-17, 25-23, 25-17) in an afternoon tilt and then edged Alberta 3-0 (25-18, 27-25, 25-22) in their evening match.

“We had two great games today and it’s great for us to really compete at a high level,” said Spartans coach Ryan Hofer. “It’s great for us to use a wide variety of players and different lineups and give the athletes a chance to take their hard training and put it into practice on the floor.

“We are showing that we can be a physical team at the net. We’re learning to scramble a little better and we’re learning about the importance of first contact, be it our serve or passing the ball.”
