The final match on Thursday at the PACWEST volleyball championship will see the host and #5 seeded COTR Avalanche face the #4 seeded VIU Mariners. This is a rematch of the 2016 PACWEST bronze medal match that the Mariners won in three straight sets. The Mariners are looking to get back to the gold medal match for the third straight year, while the Avalanche are looking for their first playoff win since that 2016 tournament when they were also the fifth seed. No doubt the gym at COTR will be packed tonight for this tilt.
