The Trinity Western Spartans, ranked second in the country, will sit back and await their semifinal opponent.

The men’s volleyball earned itself a weekend off thanks to a conference-leading 20-2 record in the Canada West regular season.

They finished with that mark thanks to a pair of 3-1 victories over the visiting Winnipeg Wesmen over the weekend at the Langley Events Centre.

The Spartans won 3-1 (28-26,18-25,25-13,25-15) on Friday and 3-1 (25-15,25-15,23-25,25-22) over the Wesmen.

Lucas Van Berkel had five blocks in the second game to finish his regular season career with 407 blocks, second all-time in Canada West play.

Trinity Western will host the Canada West Final Four championships at the Langley Events Centre on Feb. 21 and 22.
