Women’s Volleyball Takes Two in Weekend Battles
Providence defeats CMU and Red River College in MCAC play
The Lady Freemen Volleyball squad wanted to impress their fans with their play in their first home games of the season. With a thrilling five set victory over CMU and a dominant performance against Red River College they were able to send the message to their fans and the Blue Man Crew that they mean business.
Providence started the weekend with a game against the school’s most heated rival, Canadian Mennonite University. The two teams didn’t disappoint as they were able to match each other set for set throughout the match. Providence got the upper hand in the match as they won the first set 25-20. CMU then took the first of three tight sets 26-24 as they showed Providence that they came to compete. The two teams then swapped the next two sets with the Lady Freemen taking the third set 27-25, and CMU extending the match by winning the fourth set 25-22. The two squads then squared off in a first-to-fifteen extra set to decide the victor, and it was Providence, pushed on by a riotous Blue Man Crew, who came out on top with a 15-8 finisher.
The Lady Freemen then hosted Red River College in a Saturday matinee. Providence came out with the same intensity as Friday night and it proved to be too much for the Red River squad. With convincing 25-19, 25-14, and 25-11 victories the Lady Freemen left the court leaving no doubt in anyone’s mind who the stronger team was on the day.
Coach Heidebrecht was impressed with her team’s efforts on the weekend, and was especially impressed with her team’s ability to win an always difficult five set match on Friday night.
“It was great playing at home for the first time this season. Our veterans played solid for us and led our young team as we pulled out a win in the five set game against CMU.” She commented. “It was also great to see the freshman settle their nerves for Saturday’s game. The team played strong all around and we are continuing to gel well as a group.”
