Volleyball Takes Flight

This past Saturday night, the Providence University College Pilots opened their MCAC season with wins over the St. Boniface Les Rouges.

The Women’s team started off the night with a bang as the first set was over in a matter of minutes. The Pilots won the set 25-10 in convincing fashion. The wheels starting falling off after that however, as the Pilots starting making error after error. In what seemed to be a completely difference match from the first set, St. Boniface took the second and third sets 25-18, 25-21. Providence was able to come back in the fourth set (25-15) and level the match at two sets each. The Pilots put up a fight in the fifth but fell to the visiting Pilots team 15-11 in the fifth and deciding set.

“This wasn’t the start we were hoping for in our first match of the MCAC season,” says Assistant Coach Kyle Guenther. “We made a lot of errors and didn’t bring a whole lot of energy throughout this match. I am glad we found a way to win in the end but this certainly was a learning experience for all of us.”

The Men’s team took the floor next and handled St. Boniface in a much easier way. The Pilots were in control almost the entire match. The match ended in a 25-17, 25-15, 25-20 score line for the Pilots. Big hitting, strong defensive play and an overall calmness to their play, Providence looks poised to be a factor in the MCAC this season. Although the team is fairly young this year, they bring a lot of excitement and energy to the league.
