WINNIPEG — University of Manitoba men’s volleyball coach Garth Pischke earned his 1,200th career win as a coach on Friday night at the Investors Group Athletic Centre.
The No. 2-ranked Bisons defeated the first-ranked Trinity Western Spartans 3-0 (25-21, 25-19, 25-17), which improves the Bisons’ record to 14-1 this season.
“I like the way we did it at home in Manitoba,” Pischke said in a statement following the game. “We beat the best team in the country by playing flawless tonight. It was a battle against Trinity and we have to be prepared again on Saturday. I might even be around for my 1,300th.”
Pischke’s milestone is the most overall coaching wins by a CIS (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) head coach in history.
The Bisons and Spartans will have a rematch tonight beginning at 8 p.m. The women will play first at 6 p.m.
