The UFV women’s volleyball team took bronze this last week in the CCAA national championship at Vancouver Island University. The Cascades finished the tournament with three wins and one loss.

The women began the tournament with a 3-0 loss to Humber College in the quarter-finals. In the consolation semi-final against Mount Saint Vincent University, the Cascades handily defeated them 3-0. Next up, the Cascades faced off against Medicine Hat College. They initially fell behind, dropping two sets to the Rattlers, but rallied, winning three straight sets to advance to the bronze medal game.

The bronze medal game offered the Cascades a chance at revenge against the Humber Hawks. A chance that they took advantage of. The women defeated Humber in four sets, with the help of Brittany Stewart who had 20 digs, Jenna Evans, with 18 kills and Kayla Bruce with 13 kills. At the end of the match, the Cascades had 47 kills and 45 assists, with an attack percentage of .187. Their strong play was rewarded with a bronze medal.
