Chargers hit the road to begin push for playoffs
January 5, 2010
After hosting a bevy of teams and athletes over the holidays at their Christmas and New Year’s Classic Tournaments, the Chargers basketball and volleyball teams hit the road this weekend to start the second half of the BCCAA season and their push for the playoffs.
The “Classics” attracted hundreds of local basketball and volleyball fans over the holidays and provided participants with the opportunity to prepare for league play which resumes this weekend.
In hoop action, the Chargers travel to Vancouver to take on the Langara College Falcons. Games are scheduled for Friday, January 8 (Women at 6pm; Men at 8pm) and Saturday, January 9 (Women at 1pm; Men at 3pm).
The Camosun men share a 2-5 record with the Falcons and hope to break this tie over the weekend. The win-less Langara women pose a limited threat to the Chargers who are 5-2 and in fourth place in the standings. Back to help the team in the backcourt (and hopefully to another BCCAA Championship) is veteran point guard Kate Carlson (Spectrum) who took the Fall semester off to travel.
Joining the Chargers hoopsters on the road are the Camosun volleyball teams who are headed for New Westminster to face the Douglas College Royals. Matches are Friday January 8 (Women at 6pm; Men at 7:45pm and Saturday, January 9 (Women at 1pm; Men at 2:45pm).
With Douglas in a tie for sixth, the #4 ranked Chargers men are focused on bringing home a double-header win. Oak Bay grad Garrett Marcellus also returns to Camosun this semester, adding his talent and 6’4” frame to the Chargers roster.
At 2-7, the Camosun women are looking to add some wins to their record and working their way out of the sixth-place pool.
