The Mariners Battle Champs

The VIU Mariners will look to continue their winning ways at the CCAA national championship on Friday as they face the Lakeland Rustlers; the defending champs.

On Thursday the Mariners quickly disposed of the RSEQ champion Andre-Laurendeau Boomerang with a three-set sweep. Mikayla Wagner collected nine kills and Danielle Groenendijk was the player of the match with eight kills and two aces.

The Rustlers defeated the ACAA champion MSVU Mystics on Thursday in four sets to book the match with the Mariners.

On Friday evening the Mariners will be looking for a bit of payback after the Rustlers swept them last year in this very semi-final. Match time is set for 5:00pm PST.
