LANGLEY, British Columbia – The two-time defending Canada West champion Trinity Western women’s volleyball team announced its 2016 regular season schedule Wednesday.

The Spartans will open their 24-match Canada West campaign on the road against Regina Oct. 28-29 before returning to Langley to host Calgary in their home-opener Nov. 4-5.

This year’s schedule will feature a home-and-home series with local rival UBC Nov. 25-26, in which the Thunderbirds will host the Spartans Friday at 12 p.m. and TWU will host UBC Saturday at 1 p.m. The weekend series is a rematch of last year’s CIS semifinal in which the Spartans beat the T-Birds in four-sets. The teams split last year’s regular season series.

The Spartans will host Thompson Rivers Jan. 13-14 in a rematch of last year’s Canada West quarter-finals that saw TWU win the best-of-three series with a pair of four-set victories.

TWU will take on both of last year’s Final Four opponents on the road this season, as the Spartans travel to play UBC Okanagan, who TWU beat in the Canada West gold medal match, Jan. 20-21, and Alberta, who the Spartans beat in the conference semifinals, Jan. 27-28.

The Spartans host Manitoba on the final weekend of the regular season Feb. 24-25.

This seasons’ home schedule sees the Spartans hosting their home games one hour earlier than in previous years, with first serve set for 5 p.m. on Fridays and 4 p.m. on Saturdays.
