Men’s volleyballers fall in three sets to Camosun

The University of the Fraser Valley men’s volleyball team dropped a three-set decision on the road to the Camosun Chargers on Friday evening.

224The Chargers, ranked No. 12 in the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA) national poll, prevailed by scores of 25-19, 25-23, 25-20.

The Cascades, who sit fourth in the PacWest conference, saw their record fall to 6-9.

The two teams play again on Saturday at 3 p.m.

“We didn’t get off to a great start – we kind of struggled out of the gate, and it took us a while to get going,” UFV head coach Kyle Donen said. “And we just didn’t execute well enough. They gave us opportunities, and at certain points of the match, we did execute. But we didn’t do it on a consistent basis.”

Josh Togeretz led the Cascades with nine kills, while middle Dayton Pagliericci had seven kills with a .778 hitting percentage. Setter Ryan Thain contributed 24 assists and four digs.

“We’ve had matches with them this year that we probably feel like we let slip away, and in particular, sets that we let slip away,” Donen said. “So I think we owe it to ourselves to come out with a better effort (on Saturday).”
