Bearcats clinch quarter final contest

The #4 CBC Bearcats clinched their Quarter Final contest against the 5th seeded UFV Cascades in five gruelling sets to move to tomorrow’s Semi Final round where they will face the nation’s No. 1 team, the Douglas College Royals at 8pm. Despite a hard fought battle, UFV is finished for the season and boards the bus home.

“Getting through these tough matches is a matter of trust,” states CBC Head Coach Phil Wiens. “All you can do is play point to point, no matter what the score is or which point it is. It’s all you can control. Tomorrow’s match against Douglas will undoubtedly be a tough one. We’re going to go out and play our best. You never know what will happen!”

Fifth-year Bearcats setter Jason Warkentin was named CBC’s Player of the Match for his outstanding performance that ultimately led the team to tonight’s epic win. In addition to his stellar distribution skills, Jason contributed 5 kills, 2 blocks and an ace. Fourth-year Cascades leftside and sometimes setter, Adam Chaplin (Mission, BC) also earned Player of the Match honours for his punishing serves and consistent offense. Adam amassed 17 kills, 3 aces and 1 block.

“Trust is key for us,” says Bearcats Player of the Match, Jason Warkentin. “We’ve built it up over the year playing and practicing together every day. We have a small team and that trust has to be there, it’s really important.”
