It was an exciting week for the Calvin Christian Collegiate volleyball teams as the zone championships came to an end.
The Providence women's soccer team was down in South Carolina to participate in the DII NCCAA Championships. They defeated Grace Bible College 2-0 in the semi-final game to advance to the finals on Saturday, November 18. Against the top-ranked team, the Pilots women lost a very close game to Bob Jones University, 1-0 in overtime. Julika Phommarath, who scored 13 goals and had 7 assists in 12 games, was awarded NCCAA DII Women's Soccer Game Plan 4 Life Award, which honours excellence on the field and exceptional service off of it.
The Pilots men finished the round robin 1-1-0 down in South Carolina, where they also qualified for the NCCAA Championships. They took on Pensacola Christian College in the semi-finals but lost 2-1, ending their season.
The Pilots have also been winning inside the gym. After victories this past weekend, the Pilots men and women's volleyball teams are both a perfect 4-0 to start the MCAC season.
That record couldn't carry into the States, as the women's volleyball team was in South Carolina, where the team went 0-3 during round robin play.
Canadian Mennonite University also swept the weekend games, with both the men's and women's teams getting back-to-back wins against Universite de Saint-Boniface.
