The Bisons men are on a roll, having won three of their last four games. They currently sit tied for second in the Canada West Prairie division.

Both the Bobcats and Cougars sit at the bottom of the standings, but it was important for the Bisons to perform their game plan properly and make the shots as they became available. The Bisons will hope to keep rolling as they travel west to play Fraser Valley and Trinity Western.

The Bisons struggled in Regina after winning a pair of games in Brandon.

Despite suffering their first loss of the season against a tough Brandon team, the Bisons men’s volleyball continues to be among the top of the Canada West.

The top four teams in the conference are Alberta, Trinity Western, Manitoba and Brandon, so close results like the above are to be expected.

The Bison women’s volleyball team has fallen from near the top of the conference to the middle of the pack after a disappointing road trip, their first of the season. Picking up just one win, the Bisons return to the comfortable confines of the Investors Group Atheltic Centre, where they hope to get their season back on track against Thompson Rivers University.
