The University of the Fraser Valley Cascades Men’s Volleyball Team split their weekend games defeating the Camosun College Chargers, 3-0, on Saturday and falling Friday night to the VIU Mariners, 3-0. The Cascades record improves to 2-1, in the BCCAA. 

On Saturday, the Cascades rebounded from their first loss of the young season to beat Camosun at the Envision Athletic Centre.

The UFV Cascades Women’s Volleyball Team defeated the Camosun College Chargers, 3-0, on Saturday, at the Envision Athletic Centre. Their record improves to 1-2 in the BCCAA following Friday’s 3-1 loss to VIU.

“Tonight was another tough loss for the UFV women,” said UFV Head Coach Dennis Bokenfohr on Friday’s loss to VIU.

The University of the Fraser Valley Cascades Women’s Basketball Team suffered their first Canada West loss of the young 2010 season to the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, 89-72, in Saskatoon last weekend. The Cascades competed well against the 6th ranked Huskies all night, but in the end, the Huskies were just too much for the women’s team to handle. The Huskies jumped out to a quick lead, but the Cascades would match them basket for basket. At halftime, the Cascades were only down by the 9-point margin they surrendered early in the game.

In the second half, the more experienced Huskies built up a double digit lead and held on as the Cascades made a run in the final quarter to close the gap to 17-points. The Cascades are now 2-1 on the regular season.

The Cascades were led by Tessa Klassen, of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and Sarah Wierks, of Chilliwack, BC, with 20-points each. Courtney Bartel, from Chilliwack, BC, added 13-points in the loss to Saskatchewan. Klassen also led the Cascades in rebounds with 12.

“Tough lessons learned tonight. Saskatchewan is a physical, athletic team, and I’m not sure we ever got comfortable with the pace,” said UFV Head Coach Al Tuchscherer. “These are the lessons we need to learn from, adjust to and I’m confident we will be better tomorrow.”

The University of the Fraser Valley Cascades Women’s Soccer Team defeated the UBC Thunderbirds, 2-0, to capture their first ever Canada West Championship. The Cascades will head to Charlottetown, PEI as the Number One ranked team from Canada West. UBC also earned a berth at the CIS national tournament. The Cascades go to PEI sporting a 10-5-1 overall regular and post season record. The Cascades knocked off two of the Canada West’s women’s soccer power houses to capture the title.
