The Spartans celebrate a win.

A record-setting streak for Trinity Western women’s volleyball team

Langley university Spartans win 14 in a row

No. 1-ranked Trinity Western University (TWU) women’s volleyball team has set a program record with their 14th straight win to start the season after beating Brandon 3-0 Saturday at the Healthy Living Centre.

The Spartans completed a weekend sweep with a convincing victory over the Bobcats to set the team’s all-time mark for consecutive wins to start a season. The winning streak betters the 13-game run TWU posted to start the 2015-16 season.

“I’m very proud of this group,” said TWU Head Coach Ryan Hofer.

“Getting through this weekend with a sweep is fantastic.”

TWU hit .234 on the night to Brandon’s .028, which included 25 kills to 22 errors on offence. The Spartans also out-dug the Bobcats 52-42 as a team to remain perfect on the season in conference play. With the loss, Brandon’s record falls to 3-11.

Including the preseason, the Spartans now have a perfect 23-0 record this season.

Mikaelyn Sych had a great game at the net putting up eight kills and five blocks while Avery Heppell wasn’t far behind with seven kills and five blocks.
