TWU volleyball: Spartans keep rolling

The top-ranked Trinity Western Spartans keep on winning.

The men’s volleyball team — ranked No. 1 by the Canadian Interuniversity Sport — improved to 17-1 following a pair of wins over the host Calgary Dinos.

The Spartans won 3-0 (25-18,25-18,25-23) on Friday and 3-1 (25-22,20-25,25-23,25-18) on Saturday.

“It’s nice to get the win over a very good opponent, which will help us get ready for the playoffs,” said coach Ben Josephson.

The two wins helped Trinity Western inch closer to securing top spot in the Canada West, which would give the team a bye into the Canada West final four championships, as well as the right to host them.

They have never won the Canada West regular season league title.

Rudy Verhoeff led the way with 20 kills on Saturday while Jarrod Offereins had 10 digs. Dan Jansen Van Doorn had a hand in nine blocks and Verhoeff figured in six.

In Friday’s match, Steven Marshall had nine kills and four blocks, while Jansen Van Doorn had 10 blocks, seven kills and three aces.
