With schedule release, UBC Okanagan volleyball teams get peek at 2019 challenges

The Canada West season starts in October

The season’s start is still four months away, but the UBC Okanagan Heat have has had first look at what the 2019 season has in store.

Both the men’s and women’s Heat volleyball teams received their Canada West season schedules, and the planning and coaching has begun to best prepare both teams for the year’s challenges.

The Heat women will open the season against last year’s national bronze medalists, the Alberta Pandas Oct. 25. Two members of last year’s UBCO team earned conference rookie status and return to the team this year with the Heat looking to start the season on the right foot.

The women’s team will play eight straight matches against playoff teams from last year to start the 2019-2020 season.
