LANGLEY, British Columbia – With a thrilling five-set win over York Saturday evening at the Langley Events Centre, the Trinity Western women’s volleyball team remained perfect at the 2013 West Coast Classic through four matches.

The evening victory, coupled with the Spartans three-set afternoon win over Thompson Rivers improved TWU to 4-0 in the tournament and 6-0 in the preseason.

Trailing 11-6 in the fifth set against York, Spartans setter Lauren Moncks (Standard, Alta.) went to the serving line and, quite literally, served TWU to a win. With Moncks at the line, the Spartans earned nine straight points to pull out the 3-2 (25-15, 24-26, 25-20, 25-27, 15-11) win.

“We’re learning how to communicate better and some of the flaws came out against York,” said Spartans coach Ryan Hofer. “But we learned a little bit about the things we need to improve upon. Sophie Carpentier (Ottawa) played really well tonight as did Alicia Perrin (Creston, B.C.), who was playing on the right side. It was great to see the team work through the challenges of being down by a deficit in a fifth set. I’m really proud of the toughness and resolve they showed.”

Earlier in the day, the Spartans picked up a 3-0 (25-19, 25-12, 25-12) win over TRU.

“We had a good win over TRU this morning and it was a good opportunity to cycle players through the lineup and gel as a team,” Hofer said.

The Spartans are back on the court Sunday against Mount Royal at 11:30 a.m. for the final match of the West Coast Classic.
