Aussies in Canadian regional finals

Posted by devo on February 23, 2009

The Brandon Bobcats Paul Sanderson, Luke Reynolds, Cam Blewett Brandon University – fell just short in their quest for a first ever Canada West men’s volleyball banner Saturday night.

The top-ranked and undefeated Alberta Golden Bears – Tony ValenaAlberta University – swept the Bobcats in straight sets in the final of the Conference Championship in Edmonton. Set scores were 25-22, 25-23, 25-18. more@ Luber’s Lounge

With the win, the #1-ranked Bears will likely head into the CIS national championship tournament, February 27-March 1 in Edmonton, as the number one seed, giving them the best possible chance to defend their CIS title. Brandon, in their first appearance, will likely earn a top-three seeding. The setter for the Golden Bears has a familiar name for Aussie volleyball followers: Mike DeRocco
