Volleyballers leave ACAC with title

Mount Royal wasn’t going to have any skeletons in their closet going into Canada West next season.
After blitzing through the regular season, the women’s Cougars team took it to the Medicine Hat Rattlers in four sets to claim their 14th ACAC title. The Cougars had an 18-2 record going into the playoffs.
The Cougars now look to next season where the competition will be much stiffer.
Cougars mens’ coach Shawn Sky previously told The Reflector that it’s a case of walking the walk, and the guys certainly did just that.
The Cougars men’s also won their ACAC title in straight sets over the Red Deer College Kings. The Cougars are now looking forward to new challenges in higher level competition.
“CIS will be awesome next year and we get to start playing against the U of C (University of Calgary),” Grigor Kartev, centre for the Cougars said.
These victories will undoubtedly add some confidence to these teams going forward.
“What a perfect way to leave this chapter of our schools history,” Sky previously told The Reflector.
