Vancouver Island University’s volleyball teams, as expected, were able to sweep their first matches of the season.

The women’s team scored straight-sets victories both days, defeating the College of the Rockies Avalanche on Saturday by scores of 25-16, 25-6, 25-15, then sweeping Sunday’s rematch 25-17, 25-11, 25-22.

The men were nearly perfect, dropping just one game along the way. VIU beat COTR 25-17, 25-11, 23-25, 25-20 on Saturday, then won 25-11, 25-21, 25-23 the next day.

VIU’s v-ball teams play the Camosun Chargers in Victoria on Friday (Oct. 21) and Saturday.
