The COTR Avalanche volleyball teams wrapped up their pre-season over the weekend in Red Deer.
The mens team dropped all four matches while the womens squad split their four games.
The closest match for the men was against The King’s University where they took the Eagles to five sets but dropped the rubber match 15-8.
Mens Head Coach Cisco Farrero believes serving will be one of their strongest attributes this season.
“We’re going to be a strong serving team.” says Farrero. “We have lots of guys who serve as a legitimate weapon and that’s a big bonus because you can kind of get easy points that way.”
Farrero also says losing this time of year isn’t always a bad thing.
“Would I have liked to have won every single game that we played this season? Absolutely, but if we’re going to learn lessons the hard way let’s learn them when it doesn’t count in the standings.”
Both teams get their regular season started against Camosun College October 20th at College of the Rockies.
