The women’s CCAA national championship will feature an all PACWEST final when the Douglas Royals face the VIU Mariners. It’s a rematch of the PACWEST gold medal match just two weeks ago.
On Friday the Royals got past the OCAA champion Humber Hawks in four sets while the Mariners downed the defending CCAA champion Lakeland Rustlers in three straight. As a matter of fact the Mariners have not lost a set in the tournament.
During the regular season these two schools met four times with the Royals winning three of the meetings.
This gold medal match will feature a pair of All-Canadians; Vania Oliveira of the Royals and the Mariners fourth year star Mikayla Wagner. Oddly enough both were named the player of the match in their semi-final victories.
For the Royals it’s their first appearance in the CCAA gold medal match since 1995, while the Mariners are making their second appearance in three years.
The first serve will fly at 7:00pm PST.
