It was a see-saw battle to the finish as the Nation’s No. 1 DC Royals and 4th seeded CBC Bearcats clawed their way through tonight’s contest with Douglas edging out the win in four. Tomorrow, the Royals defend their PACWEST title as they take on the Camosun College Chargers in the Gold Medal match at 8pm. Following tonight’s tough loss, CBC heads over to the Bronze Medal match where they face off against the VIU Mariners at 3pm.

“We’re ready for tomorrow,” comments Royals Head Coach Brad Hudson who earned PACWEST Men’s Volleyball Coach of the Year. “We want to maximize our point opportunities. Nothing really changes for us.”

Second-year Royals outside hitter George Thompson was selected as Player of the Match for his constant production throughout the game. Thompson made 16 kills and 4 aces. PACWEST 1st Team All-Star and third-year middle Leigh Goosen was also awarded a POM for his stellar performance and 15 point contribution to the CBC cause (10 kills, 5 blocks).
