Rebels Men’s Volleyball Find Success in Alberta Over Christmas Break

January 8, 2014

The Red River College Rebels Men’s Volleyball team competed in the Concordia Thunder Men’s Volleyball Invitional Tournament January 2-4, 2014 at the Ralph King Athletic Centre in Edmonton, Alberta. The tournament featured teams from the ACAC (Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference) and was a chance for the men’s team to test themselves against strong competition, and prepare themselves for the second half of their MCAC (Manitoba) schedule.

The men finished with a 3-2 record for the tournament, opening against the host Concordia and winning 3-1 (25-18, 25-13,19-25.25-15). Co-Coach Dylan Power “We arrived Thursday evening and immediately had to drive to our game. Getting little warm up before playing our first match was less than ideal but the guys stepped up to the challenge. We went up two sets on Concordia with Zac Duncan in the middle leading the way. We dropped the third set, and then won the fourth with ease.”

“Friday we played against King’s College (Edmonton), they had a few notable players on their team that could really play. We lost the first set rather badly, then came back to win three straight. Kevin Bommersbach and Mitch Hendry both were subbed out during this match due to injury.”

The Rebels were able to overcome these injuries and defeat King’s 3-1 (14-25, 25-22, 25-21,25-16).  The Rebels continued their strong play by defeating Lakeland College (West Vermillion, AB) 3-1 (20-25,25-17,25-17,25-18) Friday evening.

On Saturday, with injuries piling up, the Rebels were unable to keep up with the competition.

Power “On Saturday our first match was against Grand Prairie Regional College, we were point for point with them then until our starting Middle Jarrell Taylor Babb went down with a hand injury. We couldn’t recover from that and we lost 3-0 (25-13, 25-21, 25-16).

“Our second match Saturday was right after our first, against arguably the best team there – Medicine Hat College. With only two players left on our bench and many players out of position we struggled to take a set. We played them close and the guys on the court showed lots of determination and grit. Unfortunately at the end of the day it wasn’t enough and we fell three sets straight.” The Rebels dropped their final game 3-0 (25-14, 25-22,25-20)

Power finished on a positive note “It was exciting to see how our team and program here in Manitoba stacks up against the teams competing in the CCAA, the league we eventually hope to be a part of. This tournament showed us that not only can we play with these teams, but that we can be a serious contender.”

The Rebels Men’s and Women’s Volleyball teams start the second half of their MCAC seasons on the road at Providence College, Saturday January 11 at 6:00PM. Their first home games of 2014 happen Saturday January 18th, starting at 11:00AM when they host Assiniboine Community College (Brandon).

December 5, 2013

The Red River College Women’s Volleyball was unable to obtain a league win before the Christmas break losing 3-0 (19-25, 19-25, 18-25) to Providence University College, the lose drops the team to a 3-7 record while PUC improves to a perfect 8-0 in the MCAC.

“We had a gameplan again tonight which we were able to follow and found success in doing so.  When we got away from our game plan is when we started to fall behind.  Providence did exactly what we thought they would, they served tough and scored in transition for the most part of the night” stated Head Coach Chris MacLennan

“The girls again showed flashes of greatness with good serving, some excellent defense and some scrappy play to earn some tough points.  Our group has been dealing with some injuries including our setter Wilma Oombash who will benefit from some time off over the Christmas break to heal up and get back to work in the New Year”.

The Rebels Men’s team fared much better, defeating PUC for the second time in a row in league play 3-1 (25-19,25-18,19-25,25-20). With the win, RRC goes into the Christmas break with a sparking 8-2 record.

Co-Head Coach Dylan Power on the victory “I was really impressed with the play of Greg Kuz with his offense and Jarrell Taylor-Babb with his strong blocking” Power also added “I’ve noticed growth in all of the players both on and off the court this first half. The guys battle through adversity and constantly push and challenge each other to better than previous attempts.”

Rebels Women’s Volleyball Fall to Providence

December 2, 2013

Reeling after a tough loss to USB on Wednesday night, the Rebels hit the court against a tough opponent in the undefeated Providence Pilots Friday night in Otterburne, MB.  The Rebels came out strong and matched the Pilots point for point throughout the first set with some strong offensive work from Kaelyn Laurencelle and Hilaine Loeppky in the middle.  Off of some tough serving from the Pilots, the Rebels dropped the first set 25-23.  A slow start to the second set put Red River behind the eight ball early, but the girls showed some mental toughness and again, battled Providence in a hostile environment, only to drop the second set 25-19.  The Rebels came out flying in the 3rd set, jumping out to leads of 13-8 and 20-16, but again were ousted by the Pilots in a tight 3rd set, 26-24. 

Coach MacLennan added “this was probably our best match from start to finish that we have played so far this season.  Although we took the loss tonight, we gained some important confidence and proved that we can play with the best in this league.  We followed our game plan for the most part and were beaten by a very good team tonight, full credit goes to the players and coaches from Providence College.  We will regroup, and prepare once again for a rematch next week in our house with the Pilots.  I am proud of the way our team played tonight and am excited about the direction this group is going”.

The Rebels men’s volleyball team faired better, making quick work of the Pilots 3-0 ( (25-20, 25-8, 22-25, 25-18), they are currently in first place with a sparking 7-2 MCAC record.
