The College of the Rockies volleyball teams are back on their home court this weekend.
The Avalanche host Douglas College for a pair of games Friday and Saturday.
Womens Head Coach John Swanson says it’s always more comfortable playing at home.
“Knowing the gym and the crowd and all those things, it’s definitely helpful.” says Swanson. “Whether or not we can translate that into some wins or something, that would be great.”
Both teams are coming off a rough road trip that saw the Womens team pick up a single win in four matches and the Mens team get swept.
Swanson says they need their experienced players to lead the way.
“Leaning on our vets will be hugely important.” says Swanson. “We’ll need them to play at their peak performance.”
Both COTR teams are sixth in the PACWEST – the final seed to qualify for provincials.
