Spartans stretch streak to nine

The Trinity Western Spartans continue dispatching their foes in relative ease.

The women’s volleyball team — ranked number one in the country — improved to 9-1 after making quick work of the host Winnipeg Wesmen over the weekend at the Duckworth Centre.

The Spartans won both matches 3-0 and have won 21 consecutive sets.

They have won nine straight games to improve to 9-1.

“I was very impressed with how our girls came out and played a steady match that followed the game plan,” said coach Ryan Hofer.

“Whether it was blocking or our attacking, we did a great job of executing the plan.”

The Spartans won on Saturday by scores of 25-14, 25-17 and 25-13.

Amber Brown and Alicia Perrin led the way with 10 kills apiece while Perrin also had a match-high five blocks and Brown had a career-high six aces.

Kristen Moncks led the team with a match-high 13 digs.

Trinity Western enjoyed a huge advantage in every statistical category, especially in hitting as they were successful on .338 of their attempts, compared to Winnipeg’s .011.

Friday’s match was much of the same with Trinity Western winning by scores of 25-17, 25-19 and 25-14.

Amy Ott and Carly Hamilton led the team with eight kills apiece while Perrin and Nicole Bazin added six kills. Bazin also had a match-high three aces.

Kelci French had a match-high 28 assists as well as a pair of aces.
