The Chargers are four time defending champions and are trying to become the only men’s team in history to win five straight Conference titles. Last year as the third seed they beat the #1 Mariners in four sets to win their fourth title.

The winning team tonight will be off to Red Deer College to compete on the national stage beginning March 7th.
