Pilots volleyball teams flying high atop MCAC standings
2016-11-15
 
The Providence Pilots women’s volleyball team left for Florida on a high note, having posted a 3-0 win over the University of Winnipeg College Wesmen in their final match before heading south for the National Christian College Athletic Conference National Championship.
 
Ranked second nationwide heading into the Division II tournament in Kissimmee, Providence will face Manhattan Christian College, Arlington Baptist College and Kentucky Christian College in round robin play ahead of Friday’s semi-finals. The Championship match will take place Saturday at 12:00 p.m.
 
Last season the women finished runner-up to Maranatha Baptist University, which is ranked first overall and will once again pose a threat in the play-off rounds. But the Pilots can take confidence from their unbeaten start to the Manitoba Colleges Athletic Conference season, in which they are so far unbeaten.
 
The men’s volleyball team, too, has yet to lose in MCAC play and defeated the Wesmen in straight sets on Remembrance Day.
 
In basketball, the Pilots women dropped a 65-33 decision to the Canadian Mennonite University Blazers the last time out but will look to rebound on Friday when they host the University of Winnipeg College. Their 2-2 record currently has them second to the Blazers in the MCAC standings.
 
On the men’s side Providence lost 114-90 at Canadian Mennonite University on November 9, although reigning MCAC Most Valuable Player Romeo KC impressed with 23 points, seven steals and seven rebounds. He put up a further 15 points in a 108-76 loss at North Dakota’s University of Jamestown, and Harold Memita contributed 18 points and five rebounds.
 
The Pilots are presently third on the MCAC table and will also take on the Wesmen on Friday in Otterburne.
