The Streak

The Streak

It was a span of 344 impressive days and 25 straight matches that the Camosun Chargers men's volleyball team remained undefeated.  The streak was snapped on Saturday night by the UFV Cascades in a five set thriller 15-9.

In that timeframe, a lot happened in those 344 days, here are some of the highlights;

•    Justin Trudeau became the 23rd Canadian Prime Minister
•    The Capilano Blues men's soccer team and Douglas College Royals women's soccer teams won provincial gold
•    Canada turned 148 years young
•    Water is found on Mars
•    Deflategate took over the football world
•    The Toronto Blue Jays became good and relevant again
•    Birdman was named the Best Picture at the Oscars
•    Caitlyn Jenner made headlines
•    The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup (again)
•    The Golden State Warriors won their first NBA title
•    Star Wars awoke
•    Princess Charlotte was born
•    The Hunger Games ended
•    David Letterman retired
•    The White House in Washington was lit in rainbow colours in support of Pride for the first time in history
•    The white and gold/blue and black dress phenomenon
•    An announcement of a possible Spice Girls reunion

As one can see a number of major events around the world took place in the 344 days the Chargers were undefeated.  If you're scoring at home, that's 8,256 hours or 495,360 minutes.

The Chargers will look to begin a new streak this coming weekend when they host the Bearcats of CBC, a team they easily beat in October.
