The College of the Rockies womens’ volleyball team is off to Abbotsford this weekend.
The Avalanche are taking on Columbia Bible College Thursday and Friday.
The team is coming off a weekend split with Vancouver Island University and sit fourth in the PACWEST with a record of 4-4.
Head Coach John Swanson says Columbia Bible College has gotten off to a slow start but they’re not taking them lightly.
“Despite their record they have been very competitive.” says Swanson. “Their last match was against Capilano and they did get a victory so I anticipate they’re going to be playing with a little more confidence now.”
Swanson says they need to be ready to go Thursday following the long bus ride.
“We need to be a little lower defensively in the back row [because] that will allow yourself to buy a little more time if we’re not quite as quick or maybe a little sluggish.”
Following Friday’s match the team will stay in Abbotsford to play Fraser Valley University on Saturday and Sunday.
The Avs will be without their top veteran player Alexa Koshman who went down with an injury last weekend.
