SAINT JOHN, NB – After being upset by pestering rival Vancouver Island University in the semis, the Heat swept Humber College, qualifying for the Bronze medal match against the FX Garrneau Élans.  Emotionally drained from the previous night’s fall to the Mariners, and physically drained from the bout against Humber College earlier in the day, the defending CCAA Champions were stunned again when the Elans kept the Heat away from the podium, winning the Bronze Medal 3 sets to 1 (25-21, 25-18, 19-25, 25-22).  Myrte Schön was named the Heat’s Player of the Match, doing a bit of everything to tally 16 kills, 14 digs and 5 blocks.

SHERBROOKE, QC –  Familiar foes reunited in a face-off of the ages for the CCAA National Championship Gold Medal match in men’s Volleyball as the #1 ranked UBC Okanagan Heat squared off against the 6th seeded Columbia Bible College Bearcats.  The Heat fell short of their title aspirations, eventually falling to the Bearcats in a 3 set sweep (29-31, 15-25, 26-28).  The Heat forced deuce in the first and third sets, narrowly dropping either, in a matchup where every serve and every play counted.  The second set drubbing came at the hands of numerous mistakes, most notably from several service errors that turned into easy points for the Bearcats.
