The Trinity Western Spartans welcomed the UBC Okanagan Heat to the CIS ranks with a 62-56 victory.

The women’s basketball teams were playing in preseason action at the Langley Events Centre on Thursday (Sept. 29).

The Spartans picked up the win against their new conference foe despite being outshot 36.1 per cent to 23.2 per cent.

Trinity Western made up for that discrepancy by going 7-for-21 from the three-point line.

‘It was an interesting game,” said Spartans coach Cheryl Jean-Paul.

“We’re introducing seven new people to the program so it’s going to take some time for everyone to get on the same page.

“I think it was a great game for our returning athletes to see the results of all the hard work they put in the off-season and to realize they have the ability to win games this year.”

The Spartans were led by Jenelle Treber’s 14 points and Holley Strom’s dozen points and eight rebounds

Tiffany Olsen chipped in with eight points and 11 boards.
