Bison Volleyball on Mission to Continue Playoff Win Streak

Bison Volleyball on Mission to Continue Playoff Win Streak

The University of Manitoba Bison men’s volleyball team will head into the Canada West Final Four this weekend on the road.

The Herd — currently ranked second in the conference — will travel to Langley, B.C. to play Alberta in the first match beginning at 8 p.m. CT.

The Alberta Golden Bears are one place behind the Bisons, but tied at 2-0 in playoff standings. Earlier in 2011-12 season, Manitoba split a home series with Alberta.

The winner of the Manitoba/Alberta match will advance to the gold medal match while the loser will play in the bronze medal match — both scheduled on Saturday, February 25.

Manitoba head coach Garth Pischke has now guided the Bisons to the CIS National Championships for a 26th time.
