FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SPARTANS HEADED TO QUEBEC!

VANCOUVER – A great team effort on the service line and a huge night from Carly Hamilton pushed the Trinity Western Spartans into the Canada West gold medal game, as well as the CIS tournament, thanks to their 3-1 win (25-20, 23-25, 25-12, 25-22) over the Alberta Pandas in Thursday’s conference semifinal match at UBC.
 
Alberta played some tenacious defence to keep themselves in the match, but the Spartans simply had too much firepower in the end. With the Pandas focused heavily on stopping Canada West all-star Alicia Perrin in the middle and the Spartans’ team kills leader Amber Brown on the outside, it was third-year outside hitter Hamilton who stepped up and took advantage of the openings. She put down a match-high 18 kills on .459 hitting, committing only one error in 37 attacks.
 
“Carly was unreal tonight,” said Spartans head coach Ryan Hofer. “It was part of their game plan to stop a couple of our hitters, and they did a good job of that, but it opened things up for our other hitters and they did a great job which is why we got the win tonight.”
 
The Spartans sided out at 75 percent in the first set to win a tough defensive battle and go up 1-0, but Alberta came up with big plays at key times in set two. The Spartans actually had their best offensive set of the match, outhitting the Pandas .357 to .194 in the second to climb almost all the way back from a 17-11 hole, but they fell just short with a rare service error on set point to even the match at one.
 
It was hardly uncharted territory for these teams, who played nine out of a possible 10 sets in their series two weeks ago, with each side winning one match. Hofer said his team had no doubt they were in for another serious grind, and the Spartans regrouped well after losing the second set to come out energized in the third, starting out on a 14-3 run.
 
“We knew it was going to be a tough game,” said Hofer. “We were anxious because we split with them two weeks ago. We knew we’d have to play at a high level because it would be a tough game all along, and I thought the girls rose to the occasion.”
 
After cruising to an easy win in the third, things got much tighter again in the fourth. But that’s when the Spartans’ serving game really took off, keeping Alberta out of system and on their heels. Trinity Western had 10 aces to four service errors in the match, including six aces in the fourth set.
 
They got out to another strong lead, this time 6-1, before the Pandas fought back to tie things up at 11. Alberta went ahead by a point late in the set, but Kelci French got the Spartans back on track with a block to make it 20-19. After that, Trinity Western’s final five points of the match were three blocks (Nicole Bazin was in on all three), and one ace each from French and Perrin.
 
French, who was also named a first-team all-star, had a fantastic all-around performance. She had 45 assists, four aces, seven digs, four blocks and five kills.
 
Canada West Libero of the Year Kristen Moncks had a game-high 15 digs for the Spartans.
 
Krista Zubick led Alberta with 14 kills and nine digs. Jaki Ellis added eight kills and 13 assists in split setter duty with Alyssa Jones, who had 21 assists.
 
Alberta is still alive for a CIS berth despite the loss. They play the Mount Royal Cougars for Canada West bronze on Saturday, February 23 at 1 p.m., with the winner earning the last spot in the national tournament.
 
The Spartans will meet the top-ranked UBC Thunderbirds in the Canada West gold medal match on Saturday at 3 p.m. The teams started the regular season with a head-to-head series that they split, with each side winning on home court, and they haven’t met since.
 
“It’s weird actually because usually we get to know each other during the season, but this year we split right at the beginning of the season, and it was like ‘now we part ways, see you at the end,’” Hofer said. “So I’m really excited to play them. I’m looking forward to good volleyball and we always have great rivalry games in this gym.”

Match Notes: the last time UBC and TWU met in the Canada West gold medal match was Feb. 26, 2011…The Thunderbirds rallied to take a tough 3-2 (25-22, 21-25, 18-25 25-21 and 17-15) win over the Spartans… Four Spartans and four Thunderbirds played in the match two years ago…
